When vacationing in Mexico, we often think of laying in the hot Mexican sun for a week straight with a Piña colada in hand. The truth is Mexico offers so much more than sandy beaches and sun-kissed skin. One of the best ways to experience this beautiful country and all its wonder is through travelling by train. Here are a list of train tours that best display Mexico’s diverse cultural landscape!

The Chihuahua al Pacifico Railroador “El Chepe” is one of the world’s greatest rail journeys.
