Getting there & away
The easiest way in and out of Chihuahua to/from the south is along the canal (Av Teofilo Borunda), which has less traffic than Juárez or Aldama. Av Periférico Lombardo Toledano then gets you out to the freeway. Heading out of town to the west, take Cuauhtémoc to Zarco, where you pass many colonial mansions.
Chihuahua is the northeastern terminus of the Barranca del Cobre trains. Tickets are sold at the station (439-72-12; Mendez s/n; ticket window 5-7am & 10am-5:30pm Mon-Fri, 5-7am & 9am-12:30pm Sat, 5-7am Sun).
Chihuahua’s General Fierro Villalobos Airport (446-82-33) has daily flights to Mexico City and major cities in northern Mexico (from around M$1750), as well as Los Angeles, Phoenix, Houston and Dallas in the US.
