Welcome to Creel


The area around Creel is rich in natural wonders, from waterfalls and hot springs to surreal rock formations and expansive parklands, all perfect for a day’s hike, ride or drive. Local guides offer various tours, or you can go solo on a rented bicycle, scooter or 4WD.

Creel can be very cold in winter, even snowy, and it’s none too warm at night in autumn either. In summer, the alpine air is a welcome relief from Mexico’s coastal lowland and desert heat.
