    See the ocean

    Take a bus from Los Mochis (a block down from the Red Cross) to Topolobampo (port) and/or Malviri (beaches). Either of these options gives you a chance to see the water and get out of the not-so-charming downtown area of Los Mochis.

    Copper Canyon short-cut: El Fuerte

    by jmbredeck Written Dec 30, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    El Fuerte, main square

    If you are in Los Mochis waiting for the train to see the Copper Canyon, I suggest you take a bus (45 pesos, one-way, about 90 minutes) to the city/village of El Fuerte. This basically the first stop of the train and the section of the train ride between Los Mochis and El Fuerte is dull and slow. Why not spend the night in a small town, visit the fort museum, and bag a couple extra hours of sleep the following morning before you get on the train? There are plenty of hotel options, from exclusive to cheap - and lots of food options here too. This tip may make more sense after you have done the train ride - but think it over. . .
