Caravan Comparisons

Compare us to the other reputable option doing Copper Canyon this season.

(if their trip fits your budget & schedule better, then use them)

Why go with us? When you compare, it will be obvious. You get much more, for less money.

Note: This comparison is for Spring 2017 Copper Canyon trips. Please note that our competition does 9 days in Copper Canyon, we do only 4. We personally feel 4 days is plenty. We feel most people want an opportunity for some beach time as well, especially since Copper Canyon can be chillyl. Also they go in mid January, we go in mid February. Copper Canyon is at 7000 feet and is cold in both months, but especially in January. We base our Copper Canyon toru out of El Fuerte, they base it out of Los Mochis. That means an extra 2 hours on the train both ways through the least interesting section, coming back after dark as well. Also El Fuerte is a wonderful historic town and we provide several tours in that area as part of our package. Los Mochis is not particularly interesting, and we avoid it. We also give you tours in San Carlos, El Fuerte, Durango, Alamos & Mazatlan. This trip also includes a bus toru over the spectaxcual rfnew maztaln Durnago Highway, one of the worlds most spectacular drives. See our slideshow. You also have an option to spend an extra 3 weeks on the beach at Mazatlan or Teacapan and return with our longer Caravan to exit either at Nogales or Laredo on April 2nd.. No extra charge, you just pay for your RV park during those 3 weeks.
