Well, the month long stay in Creel, Mexico is coming to a close. Glad I decided to stay here for a month. Creel is a good place to use for a base to see the Copper Canyon.
The sites I’ve seen since being here are as follows:
3) Basateachic Waterfall
4) Cusarare Waterfall
5) Divisidero Adventure Park
7) Copper Canyon train ride to El Fuerte (Chihuahua al Pacifico Railway)
I could have gone to a few other places – like the Mennonite community, but something’s just weren’t meant to be.
All the places I mentioned are worth going to. The most dangerous is Batopilas – the roads are just not stable. They’ve torn apart a side of the mountain and the mountain is not giving up just yet.
Rock and mudslides happen on a regular basis. If you happen to get caught in one, there nothing to protect you from going over the edge of the cliff – and in some parts, it’s a good distance down to the river.
The other places, pretty easy to get to. Both waterfalls are great – Cusarare waterfall is about 75 ft. to 100 ft. high. Basaseachic waterfall is a gusher in the rainy season and 804 ft. high. Second highest in Mexico and the highest I’ve seen. I thought it was pretty impressive – worth a 3 hour ride from Creel.
I’ve made videos at each site and I’ll post them here.
In other posts, I’ll put up some pictures that I took at each site. To kind of give you and idea of what you’ll see in later posts:
1) Gondola ride
2) Waterfalls long the Copper Canyon train ride
3) Basaseachic Waterfall – falls that are 804 ft. high
4) Tunnels along the Copper Canyon train ride
This is a video of just the waterfalls. None of me jabbering. Figured it would be nice to just listen to the sound of the water falling. Was I wrong?
My view of Batopilas, Mexico. One of the “Pueblo Magico” (in English Magical city) cities in the Copper Canyon. My opinion, not so much.
