We did an overnight stay in Llano Grande with Expediciones Sierra Norte. Nice guided hikes (in Spanish) and good simple meals. Be aware that you need to arrange your own transport by local bus or cooperativo. Some basic transactional Spanish at minimum is advisable to do this trip. The mountain forests are beautiful and the cabins have a big open... More

We reserved our stay in the Pueblos Mancomunados with the community run travel agency Expediciones Sierra Norte. Unfortunately, their only office in Oaxaca is open weekdays and their website isn't great, so we were only able to stay for 2 days. They will tailor a package to suit your needs. The helpful staff in the office speak English. The villages... More

The ecotourism in these tiny mountain towns is administered by Expediciones Sierra Norte, and we booked an overnight hiking trip with them by emailing their Oaxaca office, then going in to pay them. It worked fine, but I couldn't help feeling I'd been slightly scammed, because we paid almost double what we would have paid had we gone directly to... More

Wonderful preservation of culture in different indigenous communities. These communities have worked together to provide great options for tourists to get into these villages. Beautiful cabins to stay in for a very economical price. Great ecotourism with spectacular views. You will find that the communities are all in on the service of the visitors. Each of the people you encounter... More

Hiking through the cloud forest was a magical experience and we were really glad we chose to do it. We did a three day hike with Expediciones Sierra Norte - Cajimoloyas to Latuvi, Latuvi to La Neveria, and La Neveria to Benito Juarez - and overall we were happy with it, but there are some things to be aware of:...

We visited three of the communities on a tour with Tierraventuras. Hiking through the natural beauty of the area was visually stunning. The Zapotec guides were fantastic. The cabins were surprisingly comfortable. Although I have read of travelers getting to the area and arranging guides ( required), lodging and meals, this would be daunting to the average traveler. I'd recommend... More

It was great to leave Oaxaca city life for the weekend and get out to the extremely fresh and cool air of the Sierra Norte. We loved the cabins and the food. One word of planning- bring warm clothes! My thin sweat shirt did not keep me warm enough. I was wishing for a warm ski hat and a wool... More

We hiked from Cuajimoloyas-Llano Grande- Amatlan during four days and loved the experience. The villages are very different from each other and the nature and sights vary along the way. Our visit was during the rain season, which in our experience means it rains about half the day. In Llano Grande the rain was quite heavy and cold, due to... More

We did a mountain bike ride from Llano Grande to Cuajimoloyas. Our guide was nice, but didn't explain anything about the bikes or mountain biking technique, and the trail was not "easy" as advertised. He did offer us the alternative of riding on the highway, which we did for a while, though that option didn't allow for much sight-seeing. The... More

I went for the Mushroom Festival in Cuajimolayas. First--Go in July during the rainy season--the wildflowers are amazing. Coyote Canyon is one of the most beautiful places on earth--It's a botanist's dream--Fir trees, bromeliads, orchids, succulents, pines, oaks, succulents, ferns all growing chock-a-block. The mushroom festival is fantastic. Less good is the organization: there is a lot of milling around... More
