    Ecotourism and Archaeology in Chihuahua

    by Arquemond Updated Nov 30, 2007

    Not many people around the world know about the Paquime Culture from North West Mexico, But Madera, Chihuahua has over 100 archaeological sites which you can hike to and explore:

    Cuarenta Casas trail.- this is the most known site and it has many visitors year round, also it is one of the easiest attractions to get to. Although the climbing to the legendary cliff dwelling is very steep, you can not help to stare in awe at such beautiful place the Madera region is.

    Huapoca Complex trail.- This is, perhaps, the most attractive of all the archaeological trails Madera has to offer. Trough a worn down dirt road, we drove into the mountains, crossing the region´s biggest affluent --the Papigochi River-- we left the van and started hiking into the Huapoca Canyon. What you find starting this trail, is a breathtaking panoramic view of the Huapoca Canyon with the Papigochi River zig zagging at the bottom and the Cueva del Mirador (Watch point Cave) embedded into the canyon wall. As you follow the signals, you get to the Cueva de la Serpiente (Serpent Cave) which is one of the most refined sites. Being there is like nothing else! Then you continue over to the Nido del Aguila (Eagle´s Nest) which also has an incomparable nature.

    Sirupa trail.- Also a favourite of the knowledgeable ones, has two major caves to visit: Cueva Grande (Big Cave), Which has a stream dripping from the rocks above, and La Rancheria (The Village) Which is a huge site though very destroyed. What is peculiar about this trail is that you walk through the middle of the canyon thus, seeing everything from down up.

    El Embudo trail.- My favourite trail. This hike is planned for a 3 day tour, but it can be done in 2 at your own risk! I am kidding, but the truth is that it is a very long and tough hike, but the caves in the Jarillas Stream are almost intact. As you walk into the rooms, you can still find the ancient corn ears and pieces of pottery. An amazing place!

    Sierra Madre Express

    by LadyXoc Updated Mar 11, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Ride a first class train through Mexico's Copper Canyon. This is the train seen on PBS's Great Train Journeys. The scenery is beautiful. And there is a definite feeling of "I'm not in Kansas anymore." The train is only a few cars long.
    The last car is an open air car with a bar and a bartender. And the dining car is lovely to sit in and watch as you traverse hundreds of bridges and ride thru countless tunnels.

Nuevo Casas Grandes

  • Paquime Ruins

    Nuevo Casas Grandes Things to Do

    The ruins include multi-storied apartment and storage buildings, roasting pits, ceremonial areas, canals and waterworks, ballcourts and interesting features such as the "Serpent House". The entire area is exposed and it can be very cold and windy in the winter and I image windy all year round - be sure to dress appropriately.

  • Beauty Nights

    by HBS Written Jan 15, 2007

    Favorite thing: This Land have a beautyfull place to see the brighting Stars, if you have a telescope dont miss this chance in Summer, when heat is less hard and even the fauna have chance to run trough this Dunes. I hope that all the good people interested in conservation can make this a natural reserve, tho keep this like must be and prevent the sand depredation. If you're patience, can have the chance to see some animals, like Turtles or Coyotes, looking for a better place to stay, or just for something to eat...

    Fondest memory: Staying there you have an special sense of life and nature, you can hear the sand rolling drived by the wind. In the night, without lights have a nice view of the sky. Some times in winter have a vaste white land, most from snow than for sand!!

La Paz de Mexico

  • Spirit Island

    by caboruss1 Written Aug 29, 2006

    I stayed in La Paz for a week and had a trip of a life time. We visited Es Spiritu Island twice and both times turned out to be very special trips. Not only did we see wild life and an Island with many caves we snorkled with sea lions and many fish. On our return trip back to the beach we encountered about 50 pilot whales and about the same number of dolphins. the dolphins were jumping out of the water and splashing the tanga. It was amazing. And to top off the entire trip on our last day in La Paz we journeyed to El Tecolote beach where we took off on our snorkel trips and three Orca whales beached themselves. I was one of the lucky few who helped free the whales from the beach and watched them swim off and join their pod. It was a spiritual encounter and I believe La Paz is the place for me to grow old and die. I have been looking at real estate there and long to be back there.

    The weather was great the water was great and the people were wonderful!

    Viva La Paz.
