Villa del Oeste
Villa del Oeste information
Many of the big-screen cowboys have swaggered through this film set. Today, the set is a souvenir-drenched theme park with gunslingers shooting it out at weekends (2:30pm and 4:30pm on Saturday, 1:30pm, 3:30pm and 5:30pm Sunday), while the rest of the week it’s empty. Either way, it’s kind of fun.
On weekends, a bus (adult/child M$30/20 including admission) leaves from Durango’s Plaza de Armas a half-hour before each show. To get there on weekdays, take any northbound bus (M$10, about every 30 minutes) and remind the driver to drop you there. To get back you’ll have to flag down a bus, so expect to stand in the sun for a while.
