    Main Chihuahua's sights are clustered in the City Center scattered in a few-block area. With all due respect, there isn't much to be impressed with about the tourist sites and the same city center - an unbalanced blend of colonial buildings, modern constructions, small streets and wide avenues - is not too pleasant to walk around, but anyway you...

    Chihuahua Things to Do

    This is a relatively new park that was built on an area that was cleared and the people moved to newer neighborhoods. Apparently this had been a high crime area that was very hard to control and moving the families and tearing down the "slum" solved the problem. There is a bandstand that is shaped like a pigeon coop, a statue of Anthony Quinn (a...

    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.

    Mata Ortiz Off The Beaten Path

  • Arquemond's Profile Photo

    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!

  • Crossing the border to Juarez Mexico

    Ciudad Juárez Transportation

    The interesting thing is that you only need your driver’s license to get in and out of this part of Mexico. You do not need a passport if your stay is less than 72 hours and you do not travel pass the 18 mile limit. It costs 50c to cross the bridge into Juarez and come back. It takes 4$ to get you car into Juarez and back. I would advise against...

    Divisadero Warnings and Dangers

    It never ceases to surprise me - the prevailing attitude in Mexico that they can shrug off any promise or commitment or plan and just go with whatever else is happening in front of them - it isn't easy for a 'control freak' or someone who knows the plan and is intent on sticking to it or even just looking forward to the plan....beware, it doesn't...

    You can arrange with locals (check at the hotel) for guides and local transportation in the Divisadero area. The guides can take you around the area to see the sites and to isolated villages. The travel is slow and mostly on dirt roads but works very well. Several of us were transported in an old school bus for a visit around the Divisadero area....

    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!!
