50 Years of Experience

We have just celebrated 50 years serving the hospitality and tourism industry in the states of Sinaloa, Chihuahua and Baja California. A pioneer in the field and looking ahead to the completion of the construction of the Chihuhua al Pacifico Railroad (1961),
the Balderrama Enterprise was created in 1957 to offer premium hotel services in the vast Copper Canyon region for visitors from all over the world.
