The pottery from   this area is very special and known around the world for its intricacy and   character.
Jan 3,   Friday Creel Best Western,   Creel B,   L We   travel down through ranch country into the wooded Sierras and get our first   taste of Copper Canyon. There are rock formations, Tarahumara Indian   villages, waterfalls in season, and some delicious local eateries. This   is the bustling hub of the canyons and is filled with known and unknown food   haunts. Veronicas (known) and Estelas (unknown) are recommended. There is a   little museum/gift shop run by a local mission that is quite good.
Jan 4,   Saturday Aereponapuchi   in the Divisadero area Mansion   Tarahumara, Areponapuchi L,D Some   time to finish seeing the Creel area and we are off to nearby Divisadero and   a room with a view. We arrive at this tiny town and a local lodge- above the   canyon- Mansion Tarahumara. Dinner, relax as well as perhaps watch the sunset   over the vast reaches of Copper Canyon. “Arepo”as we call it, is officially   “nowhere Mexico”. The area around Arepo gives us a good long look at Copper   Canyon, and we have plenty of time to look around. Enjoy the view!  Areponapuchi- Just call it Arepo and don’t   expect the big city. This tiny place sits near the rim of some of the best   views of Copper Canyon. The new gondola and ziplines are a scenic thrill, and   you can walk or ride horses in and around the great canyon. Also a good place   to pick up local souvenirs. Gondola, zipline, horses are available here- huge   views!
Jan 5, Sunday El   Fuerte Posada   Hidalgo, El Fuetre B,L Plenty   of time to take a walk and relax. Then we reboard the train for the   unsurpassed journey toward our evening destination, El Fuerte. Tunnels,   bridges, canyons, mountains…have your cameras ready! We arrive in El Fuerte   after dinner on the train…this place is known for incredible food! El   Fuerte- A small town with a quaint (and delicious!) market and lots of   colonial architecture. History, Indian culture, bird watching, and a palm   lined plaza make this place a favorite.
Jan 6,   Monday Sea   of Cortez Baja   Ferry Room B We   have time to take in the local market, the plaza, and a river trip to see the   birdlife and petro glyphs.

Here we can lay by the pool,   walk the beaches, stroll through the art shops and perhaps see whales in   season.
