Mexico’s Top Adventures – Travel Weekly

Journey Mexico recently chatted with Travel Weekly about popular adventure destinations in Mexico. Below are excerpts from the article “Top spots in Mexico for travelers seeking adventure” written by Meagan Drillinger and featured on Travel Weekly’s website:

Mexico has relaxation down. If you need a chaise lounge, a drink that’s bedazzled with its own umbrella and a bedroom that is steps from the beach, you’re going to be happy in Mexico. But for travelers who crave high adrenaline, wilderness, and stunning, rugged landscapes, Mexico also fits the bill.

“While we certainly have some of the most exquisite beaches and coast lines in the world, we also are blessed with world class culture, nature, landscapes, and active travel experiences,” says Zachary Rabinor, CEO of Journey Mexico. “While not often recognized for our adventure travel options, we also possess some of the most exciting active travel opportunities in the world.”


In the northern part of Mexico, in the state of Chihuahua, travelers will find the Copper Canyon, a stunning natural beauty that slants a total of 37,000 miles in length. These canyons are longer and deeper than the Grand Canyon and are perfect for hiking, trekking and mountain biking.

Many travelers will explore Copper Canyon via Chihuaha el Pacifico, also known as El Chepe, the train that runs the length of the canyon from Los Mochis to Chihuahua, but those looking for a more adrenaline-packed itinerary can sign up with Journey Mexico on a nine-day, multisport itinerary. Journey Mexico’s itinerary combines the classic train ride with intense hiking and camping through the biggest canyons, including Urique, San Rafael and Guitayvo. The tour also incorporates visits to local spots like San Alonso village or the Cerocahui Mission.
