Posada Barrancas Mirador
Cosy, rustic accommodation with extraordinary sweeping views across the breadth of the Mexican Copper Canyon.
The rustic-style hotel is located across the tracks from its own station on the Copper Canyon Railway.
The mid-rage, medium-sized property perches on the top of a hill with unrivalled and spectacular panoramic views over the canyon from the attractive terrace.
The 70 guest rooms and suites are set within brightly painted wood and adobe buildings reflecting the traditional style of local Tarahumara indian homes. These simple rooms are cosy and pleasant, with tiled floors, wood-beam ceilings and ochre and terracotta coloured walls. Each has a balcony where you can sit and survey the canyon below.
The vistas are truly spectacular: the hotel was nominated by Conde Nast Traveler Magazine as one of the world’s top ten for its sweeping views.
