Roberto Fuerte…in English we know him as Bob Strong. Twenty years ago he ventured into this enchanting place on a medical mission trip with CHIA. Bob was instantly bonded with the people and their communities. He began helping locals develop bed and breakfast type accommodations for curious gringos to enjoy. He formed Mexico Outback and began to bring people to Copper Canyon to experience real rural Mexico. No one is a stranger to Bob on the train. He is a legend down there and his life investment has been a significant influence in the region. His infectious enthusiasm for Copper has been life changing for me and was the foundation for Authentic Copper Canyon.
