On the El Chepe rail line from Los Mochis to Chihuahua you will stop at Divisadero. Here you will find the local Tarahumara Indian women (known as omugi) selling their wares, baskets and bowls made from local grasses, jewellery and scarves/pashminas all brightly coloured like the beautiful souls that they are.

Traditional dishes are cooked on an open flame, but not recommended unless you are a local. Be sure to race down to the edge of the Copper Canyon to take in the view and a few snaps.

Seven times larger than the Grand Canyon it is made up of more than 20 canyons formed by six rivers over centuries.  It is a sight to behold.

Even better stay here at the numerous canyon edge hotels on offer and take a ride on the Cable Car (Teleferico) or Zip Line if you are feeling adventurous. Popular activities in the area include hiking, biking, trekking, horse riding and four-wheel driving.

Travel on the Chepe is available in both Economy and First Class but I would suggest Economy for a more “colourful” journey.
