Known for it's excellent fresh water fishing, sea fishing, bay tours, and either bird watching or hunting, the Los Mochis area and El Fuerte, 80 kms (48 miles) away, are an outdoor person's dream and can add to the thrill of visiting the canyons.
Los Mochis is a modern small city located in some the more fertile valleys of Sinaloa, Mexico. Just miles from the large bay and seaport of Topolobampo (where the La Paz-Topolobampo ferry lands), the city offers both first class and budget hotels, fine restaurants offering local seafood, modern facilities including internet cafes, and travel agencies for booking Copper Canyon railway tickets. This city of 300,000 inhabitants has an international airport and modern bus station for travelers to reach the western terminal of the Chihuahua al Pacifico railroad. |
