In El Fuerte, there is an abundance of tourist activities with cultural content.
It is the town where Diego de la Vega ¨El Zorro¨ lived as a child and in his memory there is a show for tourists. Besides being a magical place, it is the fourth most populated city in the state of Sinaloa. It was an important mining town with large mansions now transformed into hotels or museums. To protect itself from the natives, in 1610 an important fort was built, which gave rise to its name.
El Fuerte offers varied tourist and cultural activities, such as museums, palaces, or a Jesuit temple. But it is also the starting point for many walks and offers several viewpoints… A walk along the river El Fuerte at sunset or sunrise is an activity not to be missed. In the hill of La Máscara you can enjoy ancient engravings in stone. Bird watching or fishing are also activities that El Fuerte generously gives us.
Culturally, the city El Fuerte has what is necessary to take us back to the past of the Tarahumara Mountains and its inhabitants and understand the evolution of their customs until today.
El Fuerte offers a journey through time, as well as a reflection on the present. It is a place that places us in the origins and management of our culture.
In addition to the activities mentioned above, you can enjoy nature and the typical sports of the area, such as fishing and ecotourism.
