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

We hiked the Llano Grande trail and it was magnificent. I highly recommend a day hike in at least one of the villages. Very rewarding.

We did a two day horseback ride beginning in Latuvi. Visited the Molcajete waterfall and Amatlan. Great sites along the way. Horseback was a unique experience to see all of this. Felt like an early explorer at various times along the trail. We really enjoyed our stay in Latuvi. The guides and Sra. Marta who prepares the meals there were... More

My family of 5, including a 9 year old, went with a good driver in a van to the Cuapulipam area in the Sierra Norte, stopping at Benito Juarez's birthplace, the pretty little town of Guelatao en route. Once in Cuapulipam, we took a brief hike along a pretty creek, then some of us went with a guide to a... More
