People come back from Copper Canyon with a vivid memory of the foods- especially from our “Blue Corn Express”.
It is the food!
The foods in Copper Canyon- including the infamous "Agua Chile" in Urique, drawing a gasp from one of our guests in this pic- are fantastic.
The food scene in the Sierra Madres is varied and unique. There are several cultures shoulder to shoulder in the Sierra Madres- the Mexican population, the Tarahumara Indians, the Mennonites- and this makes for variety of delicious options there.
Pepper production north of the canyons makes for close by sources for this vital ingredient
Central northern Mexico- this “Norteño” area- is largely undeveloped by most standards and still has the flavor of old cowboy days. The pace is slow, the people are friendly and the rugged nature of the desert and mountain areas is reflected in the culture- especially in the food.
One of the August and September time is fresh mushrooms from the pine woods.
Click here to ask a question or get more info. One common question people have is if this is a hiking/sleep on the ground trip. Answer: No. We stay each night in small cabanas or hotels, all of which are very clean and include hot water and linens. There is always the opportunity for a good walk, but ground transport is always available.
Most of our trips originate in El Paso and end in Baja.
Now we also have the option of flying directly to Chihuahua City (CUU) to begin our trips. Direct flights from Dallas (American Airlines) and Houston (United Airlines) go daily to CUU.
Guests can return home from Cabo (SJD).
This gives us an extra day in Copper Canyon and smooths the trip as it eliminates the long drive in from El Paso. Call Dave today at 217.369.9897 for details.
