Welcome to Batopilas

Batopilas was founded in 1708, and peaked in prominence in the late 19th century when silver mining boomed. The climate is subtropical here year-round, which means scorching in the summer months and pleasantly warm the rest of the year.

Batopilas can be slightly rough around the edges, with marijuana fueling the local economy, but while the odd robbery has occurred, foreign tourists aren’t usually targeted, though it's important to take local advice about out-of-town excursions.
