Riding Mexico’s Copper Canyon Railway

This week’s top travel video is a great little production from Spanish and Go, taking us into the mazy heart of Los Barrancas del Cobre, aka the Copper Canyon. The video also has more value than your standard travel vlog because it teaches some simple Spanish words along the way. The Copper Canyon Railroad is one of the world’s great train journeys. It starts in Chihuahua and ends in Los Mochis, near the Pacific Ocean, or vice-versa. It’s a 15-hour trip, although stopping off in a town along the way, like Creel, is highly advised in order to experience the culture of the Tarahumara (Raramuri) people, as this video highlights well.
