Welcome to Northwest Mexico

The perfunctory towns and cities won't detain you long: Los Mochis harbors little of interest except as a jumping-off point for the spectacular train ride through Copper Canyon or the ferry to Baja. The state capital, Hermosillo, is a vast and faceless place with little cultural interest. The glorious exception is Álamos, a colonial jewel surrounded by peaks of the Sierra Madre Occidental, which is replete with atmospheric hotels and restaurants and well worth a side trip.
