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.
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. . .
stay one night at 2200m in one of the friendly inns...
don't forget:only the train reach the village...
you discover there a prodigious landscape on the "barranca del cobre" :a 50km length
ravine and hundreds of meters deep.digged by urique river...
on both sides of the canyon,run other gorges.
rock falls have caused the development of pyramids and petrified castles with diferent colours according to the day light and ground nature.
