By Train
Travel by train can be  more enjoyable than a trip by bus, but also much more expensive. As with the bus service, it is best to pay for the highest class available.
We recommend Primera Especial for day trips and  Pullman compartments for overnight travel. They offer sleeping compartments suitable for one (camarin) or two (alcoba). During the day you can convert the compartment into a comfortable sitting room.

The trains operate between major cities of the country. Some trains run upon request of local authorities; they may be cancelled without advance notice.
Children of 5 years or less travel for free, but have to be accompanied by their parents. Minors of 5-11 years pay half the price.

Many people prefer to travel by bus because it is faster and has more services.
Example: Travel from Mexico city to Chihuahua: Flying 2.15h, on the road 34h, by train 40h.
