Four times bigger than the Grand Canyon, Mexico’s spectacular Copper Canyon is the backdrop for part of this extraordinary trip, as you travel over soaring bridges on the Train in the Sky.
It’s “insider” moments like getting to know artisans, local families and farmers as you cross Mexico’s more unseen regions that separate this excursion from the rest. You will meet the pearl oyster farmers of the Sea of Cortez and learn how cultured pearls are farmed there, then meet potters who create the intricate designs on Mata Ortiz ceramics, where ancient techniques are still used but styles have been transformed to suit modern living. And, of course, you will spend ample time with our hosts at La Cava in Guerrero, who will introduce you to the life and traditional foods of the Chihuahua Desert
