Sinaloa's Torres del Fuerte Hotel, featuring Latin American art and lovely grounds, has been restored, with materials made WHAT: Torres del Fuerte Hotel
WHERE: 102 Rodolfo G. Robles, El Fuerte, Sinaloa, Mexico
WHY TAKE A DETOUR: As you stroll down a quiet, cobblestone street in El Fuerte, Mexico, the front of one simple home is indistinguishable from the next. Then you step through the unpretentious white stucco entrance to Torres del Fuerte Hotel and enter an oasis. Jesús Torres, 62, grasps your hands and says, "Welcome to my family's hacienda."

The portico, supported by pillars of 200-year-old, hand-carved limestone, doubles as a gallery of Latin American art. Statues woven from grasses harvested from Lake Pátzcuaro blend with oil paintings and colonial Mexican antiques. Water flows from a handmade aqueduct above the portico, cascading from a lion's mouth onto a mermaid's tail in a shallow pool below. Peach and rose bougainvillea cling to the courtyard walls near a pond where a dozen ducklings form a flotilla behind their mother. Torres strolls to a nearby tree to pick fresh limes for your welcoming beer. The homestead, once abandoned, has been restored, using materials made when the Torreses' ancestors owned the property nearly 200 years ago. The palapa bar is slatted with timbers from the ruins of Mexican kitchens salvaged from the countryside. You can still see smoke stains from meals cooked a century ago.

"We didn't want the phony, cliché Mexican look," says Francisco Torres, 37, who with his mother designed the interior. "A house like this would have been built by a wealthy landowner and silver trader who would travel to Europe. With pride, he would point out the art he had brought back from Paris, Morocco or China. It's an eclectic mix of New and Old World."

GETTING THERE
Reach El Fuerte (90 minutes east of Los Mochis) by Copper Canyon Railway. When you make your hotel reservation, ask the Torreses to send a taxi to the station at your arrival time. It's also possible to reach El Fuerte by bus or private plane.


DETAILS

Lonely Planet review
Francisco Torres has turned his family's 400-year-old hacienda into beautiful boutique hotel. A gorgeous ménage-á-trois of colonial relic, rustic elegance and contemporary art characterizes this new property, from the rescued antique doors to the excavated original columns to the recycled bricks and beams. All 25 rooms are uniquely themed, many with beautiful slate bathrooms and exposed adobe and brick walls.

The bar and restaurant are housed within an old foreman's house and ancient Jesuit-built chapel.For the same price, it would be unthinkable not to stay here over Posada del Hidalgo.

El Fuerte, Sinaloa, Mexico
The Gateway to Copper Canyon. El Fuerte was founded in 1564 by Spanish conquistador Don Francisco de Ibarra, the first explorer in the treasures of the Western Sierra Madre mountains. In 1610 a fort was built to ward off the fierce Zuaque and Tehueco Indians, who constantly harassed the Soaniards. El Fuerte was the gateway to the last frontiers of northern Indian territories of Sonora, Arizona and California.  

After subduing the Sinaloa Zaque and Tahueco Indians, the settlement flourish. For the next three centuries it was the most important commercial and agricultural center of the vast northern region of Mexico. El Fuerte became a major trading post for silver miners and gold seekers from the Urique, Batopilas and Rain of gold mines in the nearby Sierra Madre.

In 1824, El Fuerte became the capitol of what is now the states of Sonora, Sinaloa and a part of Arizona. It remained for several years. There is much rich history in and around El Fuerte. You can be sure that a historical walk around this picturesque colonial city of about 30,000 people is a very rewarding experience.
Copper Canyon Mexico
The Copper Canyon, nestled in the Sierra Madre range, is actually several large canyons boasting a grandeur four times larger then the Grand Canyon, in Arizona, although different in nature; narrower, deeper and more verdant. Homeland to the reclusive Tarahumara Indians, the Sierra Madre is rich in history and legend, haunted by the restless shadows of fallen warriors, martyred Jesuits and Pancho Villa's army.  

The Copper Canyon qualifies unquestionably for national park and world heritage status. This world famous Canyon system is one of Mexico's natural, cultural and historic wonders. The canyon and ridges, covers over 25,000 miles of  rugged territory.

Rivers born in the high pine forest have carves a 10,000 mile maze of spectacular steep-walled gorges into the volcanic rock of the Sierra Madre Occidental Mountain range. Standing on a canyon rim surrounded by pine-oak woodland, you look down on a giant cactus and tropical trees over 5000 feet below.

Watered by summer thunder storms, the canyon country is a virtual planet of greens highlighted by the reds and yellows of the dense oaks in spring and fields of wildflowers in atum.

"El Chepe" 
Ma
All Copper Canyon trips are on the historic Chihuahua al Pacifico Railroad "El CHEPE". The train winds its way from the Pacific Ocean up to the heart of the canyon's scenic splendor. built over a 90 years period, this world-famous railroad is an engineering masterpiece. It has been called" the most dramatic train ride in the western hemisphere."

Most tours travel the most exciting part of the railroad, from sea level at Los Mochis, Sinaloa, to the highest portion of the line at creel, Chihuahua. Here you are near the top of the Sierra Madre range at 8,000 feet elevation. railroad trips go all the way to Chihuahua City.

The CHEPE railroad made the canyons accessible for tourist to enter this area long inhabited by the reclusive Tarahumara Indians. These samall, shy natives are famed for their long distance running ability. Some 50,000 Raramuri (people of the swift running feet) - as they call themselves -live in caves and other primitive dwellings, much as their ancestors have for the last 400 years.
