You'll be picked up at your hotel in Creel or at The 3 Amigos offices to begin your tour at the designated time. You'll be driven approximately 22kms (about 40 minutes) to the top of Tararecua Canyon and will traverse a small section of cobblestone road for several switchbacks, until you reach the main parking area and gated road.  From here you'll begin your decent along with your guide, leaving the vehicle in the parking lot and walking along the road to admire the canyon views. 

The cobblestone, switchback road to the bottom is easy to traverse and you'll enjoy amazing views of the canyon as you walk along. The average person takes from 45 minutes to one hour and a half to walk to the bottom, depending on your own physical abilities.

Once at the bottom, you'll find 7 different man-made pools awaiting you as well as bathrooms and a changing room run by the Raramuri Indians; though we do recommend you bring your own toilet paper just in case they are out. It is a canyon bottom after all. 

When you are ready to depart, you'll walk back up the canyon with your guide to board your vehicle once more and continue the drive back to Creel. Do be sure to bring a spare change of clothing so you are comfortable for your walk back to the top of the canyon. Total tour time is 8 hours.
