Northern Mexico

Trip Planner Mexico  /  Northern Mexico
Offering an ultimate frontier-land experience, Northern Mexico encompasses a sprawling desert region stretching along the border with the United States. Often called "Lost Mexico" or "Unknown Mexico" because it remains largely ignored by foreign travelers, this area includes Chihuahua, the country's biggest state and the former stomping ground of Pancho Villa's revolutionary forces. Perhaps the biggest tourist attraction in Northern Mexico, the rugged Copper Canyon is familiar to most movie buffs from numerous Westerns. This giant canyon system, deeper and larger than the Grand Canyon, remains one of the wildest and remotest places in Mexico. Other reasons for taking a trip to Northern Mexico are the region's appealing beaches, colonial-era towns, and diverse wildlife areas. Northern Mexico is in Mexico. Use our Mexico route planner to arrange your visit to Northern Mexico and any other destinations in Mexico that take your fancy.
