Unbelievable as to how these people live in today's world. An interesting sight was a native lying under a table with her wares to sell on top, she was hiding her use of a cell phone!

No matter where you are, the views of the canyon and the hills beyond are spectacular and almost every view has a Tarahumara walking to or from their remote homes.

The tarahumara sierra and all the copper canyon area have endless breathtaking views. It is very impressive to see how a family of ten natives live inside a cave, including the 75 years old friendly grandmother (that does speak spanish ) that tells you she was born there and now three generations live there . Amazing

No fake performances, this was a real view of how the Tarahumara Indians live. My tour included a visit to a woman who was raising her family in a cave. Unbelievable!

Lots of live music in the town plaza weekends and evenings. Good home-cooking in several restaurants...easy walking around town.

I had no idea that there was a mountain range in Mexico. We went on a World Cruise and one of our last excursions was a tour going to Copper Canyon. I had no idea that there was anything that rivaled the Grand Canyon of Arizona, USA. The tour would take a bus ride from the coast at Topolobampo to... More

We toured the southern portion of this area in mid-March with Superior Tours of Puerto Vallarta. More known as Copper Canyon (for those outside Mexico), this is truly an amazing creation of nature and visiting here should be on your bucket list. The tour lasts a week but 4 days are really only travel days as you need to go... More

The Tarahumara are a fascinating people. Their crafts are so lovely and they have a great love of their own music. I saw one man playing a violin type instrument. Definitely made the moment his own.

Beautiful countryside and culture. The tarahumara won't talk to you and seemed to not like the tourists, most are unfriendly but the kids loved us. We paid two little girls to take us down to the Cusamare falls. The town is UGLY, we think the ugliest town we have ever seen in Mexico (I am referring to the town of... More
