Owner description: A beautiful and seldom-seen region located along the scenic Copper Canyon route.
Reviewed 5 April 2018

Tiny little village at the bottom of a beautiful canyon. There is a finished, two lane road. However, the inside lane is covered with rocks that have tumbled down onto the road. Drivers treat it like a one lane road. Slightly harrowing.

Driving down is just the beginning of the adventure. The picturesque little town of Batopilas will win your heart. Stay a few days and hike to the "Lost Mission", or just wander the ruins of the old mines and smelting factory. Several small restaurants offer authentic local food. I hope you like Tecate, because it's the only beer in town!

Batopilas Canyon is spectacular. The road leading into the canyon is relatively new, but not well maintained. There were serious rock slides and rock falls that had not been cleaned up. Much of the road does not have structures to prevent rocks from falling or sliding onto the road. So in most places, on hairpin curves, there was only one cleared lane. Fortunately there was not much traffic, and we had an experienced driver for our van of 12 passengers.

We drove down the 140 KM from Creel to Batopilas in our VW camper van. It was a spectacular trip down but as many have said it was full of hairpin turns sharper than any you have used in your hair and fallen rocks or boulders scattered on the road making navigation extremely slow. But better to enjoy the views. We camped in the El Mango restaurant and the owner was wonderfully hospitable and generous. We spent two days scouting out the town and enjoying the colorful dress of the Tarahumara. Everyone was friendly and helpful. I recommend the walk to the church. I could have stayed a week.
