Just a few clicks inland from Sinaloa´s Pacific is the city of Los Mochis, founded in 1893 by a group of American utopian socialists. The city’s economy first took off at the turn of the 20th century when a sugar mill , also built by an American, began operating. You can still visit the mill. 

 

Today, Los Mochis is a modern agricultural and fishing town that tourists visit for the bird watching and sea lion tours to the Island of Farallon, or as a jumping off point to visit the Copper Canyon, the result of more than 60 million years of erosion, in the neighboring state of Chihuahua. Daily tours of Copper Canyon depart by train from Los Mochis for a 12-hour ride through the impressive mountains and valleys.

 

The Plaza Inn Hotel & Convention Center is one of Los Mochis many hotels that provides excursions to the Copper Canyon, with 122 guestrooms and suites and 8 event halls and a convention center that holds up to 1,200 guests.  The Best Western Los Mochis has 116 guestrooms.

 

Los Mochis International Airport is located 8 miles from downtown Los Mochis with direct flights to Guadalajara, Mexico City, Monterrey, Mazatlan, Hermosillo and Los Angeles.
