Chihuahua Pacifico Railway
Owned by Ferrocaril Mexicano, the Chihuahua-Pacifico Railway traverses five major Mexico canyons and was finished in 1961. It took over 90 years to build.
You’ll witness some of the most spectacular scenery and sightseeing you will ever do by rail. Copper Canyon is naturally isolated in the Sierra Madre Occidental Mountain Range and covers over 25,000 square miles.
En route, your Copper Canyon Mexico train must cross over 38 amazing bridges and through no less than 86 mountainous tunnels.
As the all-inclusive train trip circles the “El Lazo” loop you’ll have exceptional picture-taking opportunities of Copper Canyon’s vistas during this truly exceptional Mexico train tour.
Copper Canyon Train Tour from El Paso
All our Mexico all-inclusive train trips begin and end in El Paso, Texas. You’ll travel by luxury tour bus from El Paso to the mountain town of Creel, located at 7,700 feet above sea level in the Sierra Tarahumara part of Mexico.
From Creel, you will then travel by private rail car to the Colonial City of El Fuerte, Mexico.

Caravan's Proud History
In 1965, Roger Mudd hosted a two-hour CBS TV special on Caravan Tours. This TV production took about one month to make and was so successful it inspired the 1968 romantic comedy movie “If it’s Tuesday this must be Belgium.” In the early 50’s the Mayor of Dublin presented Caravan with the Key to Dublin for bringing the first American tour to the city after WWII. Since then, Caravan has been recognized as a pioneer in travel. You can trust in our stability, experience and dedication to quality.
Stay at park lodges, scenic resorts, and excellent hotels in great locations. See hotel descriptions on each tour page.
