There are so many options for places to stay and eat on a Copper Canyon excursion. What we do is to find the really cool local places and then to plan our trips to be sure and include them.
Hotels like in the video above in Chihuahua City- an old historic mansion that is filled with Pancho Villa era pieces. The hospitality is supreme.
Eateries like Estelas Place in Creel….I have actually never met another person in the Copper area who knows of this place. It is truly local. No menu, no prices, no English. Just good food. Manuela is there early in the morning with a fire ready and some coffee going. The food is simple and hearty and what is on the stove (wood stove) is what you get.
