Today you’ll be exploring the far reaches of the canyons that few tourists ever get to see. You’ll be driven down paved roads through 4 different canyons and through a wondrous variety of scenery; culminating in a series of switchback roads into the amazing Batopilas Canyon towards the end of the day; arriving  in the Magic Town of Batopilas, an old silver mining village from the 16th century, around sunset.

An outdoor and stylish picnic lunch is included along the way today for your comfort and immersion into the canyons.   You’ll be dropped off in Batopilas at the end of the day at the incredible Riverside Lodge Hotel; an old hacienda from the silver mining days that features private gardens, murals on the ceiling in the main salon, and claw foot bathtubs in each room.

**Please be advised that this tour to Batopilas is for the adventurous at heart only. We will be traveling along steep canyon roads, and through remote areas of the canyons. This section of the trip is for those wishing to see authentic Mexico and immerse themselves into the culture and people of the canyons. A visit to Batopilas is best described as ‘stepping back in time’ and is an unforgettable experience.

Today is a full day in Batopilas to visit the local sights. You’ll be driven to the Lost Cathedral of Satevo, and will have some time to walk a bit in the canyon bottom.

Or one to an old mine with views of Batopilas from above. You’ll also visit the Batopilas museum, which is very interesting and features photos about the annual reenactment of the Silver Trail Ride where the arrieros load the silver onto mules and drive the mule train to Chihuahua to bank the silver.
