Chihuahua charm

The first thing that comes to mind when you hear the word Chihuahua is a dog with round eyes.The dog is named "Chihuahua" because it was found here in Chihuahua.Chihuahua is written as Chihuahua, but there are various theories about the etymology of this etymology, and it remains a "mystery" as to what words mean.However, there are many place names based on the Nahuatl language, and based on that theory, it may be Xicuauhua.Its meaning is 'dry sandy place'.

Chihuahua is a state as well as Chihuahua City, the capital of the state of Chihuahua.Chihuahua is the largest of Mexico's 32 states in terms of total area, with two-thirds of its area being desert.On the west side of the state, on the other hand, the Sierra Madre Mountains run north to south.

Speaking of sightseeing in Chihuahua, first of all, it will be a trip on the “Chihuahua Railway” and “Chepe Railway”.Traveling on the only tourist train in Mexico, relaxing and enjoying the scenery of Mexico's wilderness is a luxurious time.On the other hand, there are many charms of Chihuahua that would be a waste if you ended up just traveling by train.

If you were to describe the state of Chihuahua in three words,"Nature, Ethnicity, History"You can say.

As for "nature," there is a huge canyon called "Copper Canyon," which is often introduced in Japanese media.And the local ethnic people collectively called "Tarahumara" who live in the steep mountainous area and their customs.If you go to the suburbs of Chihuahua, European people called Mennonites, who have their roots in Poland, still live without electricity in some places.Finally, "history" is a part that is neglected in general Chihuahua tourism.It is difficult for foreign tourists to understand the impact of important events and people in the area, and therefore they do not feel the importance of the historical site.But Chihuahua is the deathbed of an indispensable figure in the process of becoming Mexico today, and the place where historically important presidents used it as a refuge and spearheaded the chaotic situation in Mexico.Without them, Mexico would not have developed as it does today.

At our company, we will guide you through the vast Chihuahua from the three points of "Nature, Ethnicity, and History" as an addition to the "Chihuahua Railway Trip".

Chihuahua Railway Precautions

Chihuahua Railway has been featured in the media in Japan.Many tourists will use this tourist railway from now on.So I'll let you know about the "shortcomings" that I noticed.

We would appreciate it if you could use it as a material for planning your trip to Mexico so that you won't be disappointed when you go there.

"Chihuahua Railway" or "Chepe Railway" which is operated as the only tourist train in Mexico as of today.It is used by many travelers from Japan and abroad, but for those who are used to traveling by train in Japan and around the world, the quality of the service is "underdeveloped" and in some cases "disappointing". Therefore, we recommend that you keep this in mind when using the service.

My recommendation is to visit the surrounding sightseeing spots rather than the main trip, which is broadcasted on TV."Travel in Chihuahua".

  • the windows are dirty

The train sells spectacular natural scenery, but the most disappointing thing is that the "panorama train window" is cloudy.I also asked a traveler who used it at a different time, but it was also cloudy.This ruins the scenery.

  • stinky with exhaust gas

The first class cars have an outdoor deck, but it was not possible to enjoy the outdoors comfortably for a long time because the exhaust gas from the train hit directly. (Maybe it depends on the direction of the wind...)

  • In-car announcement in Spanish

The waiters and announcements are in Spanish, so people who don't understand Spanish may find it confusing.

  • no storage space

Carrier bags, Boston bags, and large backpacks are not allowed as there is no storage space.Also, if you are traveling with a baby, you cannot bring in a stroller, so you will always have to hold it in your arms.

For families with children and elderly people who want to travel by train with as little luggage as possible, we can store your luggage at our office in Mexico City, or deliver it to your hotel if necessary. Is possible.In that case, please feel free to contact us.

  • no flights

Due to timetable revision, today it is an irregular timetable.It may be difficult for people who do not have a lot of leisure time to travel, such as when there is no flight the next day.
