Copper Canyon

One of Mexico’s greatest natural beauties is the Copper Canyon, located in the Sierra Tarahumara Mountains in the state of Chihuahua. Chihuahua is Mexico’s largest state and borders the U.S.


Copper Canyon is a great option for pre and post-event excursions. In Chihuahua’s Copper Canyon, visitors can explore beautiful waterfalls, caves, rivers, lakes, thermal springs and lush forests. The most popular way to enjoy the view is via Chihuahua’s Pacific Train, a scenic nine-hour ride through the mountains departing from the city of Chihuahua and stopping in Los Mochis in the state of Sinaloa. Copper Canyon can be explored by hikes, mountain biking, tree-gliding, or by car. Make arrangement through Chihuahua’s Tourism Office.


A few hours from the Copper Canyon is the state’s capital, Chihuahua, an urban colonial city with a wealth of cultural activities, including a Hot-Air Balloon Festival, the International Chihuahua Festival and the Nations Festival celebrating the diversity of Chihuahua’s inhabitants.


The city of Chihuahua also contains the state’s largest convention and exposition center, ExpoChihuahua, with 107,639 square feet of column-free space for congresses and conventions divisible into 14 halls and with the capacity to accommodate 50 to 3,000 guests. ExpoChihuahua’s exposition center provides 69,750 square feet of exposition space divisible into two sections with a resistance of up to 42 tons per square meter.


The state’s capital has 19 four and five-star hotels, including the Soberano Hotel and Resort with 204 guestrooms and suites, 9 event halls that can accommodate all kinds of events from 10 to 1,300 guests. The Fiesta Inn Chihuahua provides 152 guestrooms and 4 event halls with a capacity of up to 160 guests.


Chihuahua is highly accessible thanks to Mexico’s elaborate highway systems and Chihuahua’s International Airport with direct flights to Los Angeles, Dallas-Fort Worth and Houston.
