AAA Editor Notes
Urique Canyon Lookout Tour departs from the Hotel Misión in the village of Cerocahui, which is accessible only by train. If you've just seen the Copper Canyon from a train window, this guided bus tour—offered to hotel guests only—is well worth it for breathtaking views of the region's deepest canyon from the Urique Canyon Lookout. The tour includes a visit to a cave home and shop where you can visit with local Tarahumara basket weavers. The journey by bus from the hotel to the lookout point—along a narrow, rutted dirt road that winds through pine forests—takes about 2 hours each way and is not for the faint-hearted, as there are numerous steep drop-offs.
