Barrancas del Cobre National Park

For its unparalleled scenic beauty, and for containing the two highest waterfalls in Mexico, we suggest you reserve a couple of days to visit Copper Canyon Waterfalls.

Copper Canyon Waterfalls:

Within the Barrancas del Cobre national park you can admire 2 of the most beautiful and incredible waterfalls in Creel.

  • Basaseachi. It is only an hour and a half from Creel: the highest perennial waterfall in Mexico with 256 falls. In rainy seasons, 3 kilometers downstream, another waterfall, Piedra Volada, with 456 meters, comes out. Both waterfalls are the most beautiful postcards of the Sierra Tarahumara, and next to this wonder, is the Peña del Gigante, a mountain of 890 meters high, a paradise for climbers, campers and fans of high school rappel.
  • Candameña, is another jewel that encloses the Copper Canyon.

In the National Park you will find different types of species, reptiles and birds that I assure you it is important to have your camera close by to be able to take a capture of the colors and shapes of this species of fauna.
