Known as the Gateway to Copper Canyon, El Fuerte was founded in 1564 by the Spanish conquistador Don Francisco de Ibarra. There is a great deal of rich history in and around El Fuerte.
The Tehueco (Blue Sky) Mayo Indian Mission is about 9 miles or 1 hour away. It is the center for Mayo religious fiestas. You can also visit the ancient Indian village of Capomos or take an exciting raft trip down the Fuerte River. Dove and Quail hunting are offered in various areas, as is horseback riding along the El Fuerte River, or even go kayaking. This area is surrounded by dense tropical deciduous forest and only 50 miles away fron the Sea of Cortez. The area abounds with wildlife and is a great place for birding.
If you spend the night in El Fuerte you can catch the Copper Canyon train through this spectacular canyon, or there is also daily train service to Chihuahua and Los Mochis.
