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

I rented a mountain bike for the day in Benito Juarez and then traveled to Lativa and then Lachao with a guide. I was surprised that there weren't more people around, but really enjoyed my visit. The food at Lachao was very good.

We took a 3-day hike from Benito Juarez to La Neveria, Latuvi, and ending in Amatlan. The guides were knowledgeable and friendly. The food was delicious. The cabins were gorgeous, clean, great hot water. Highly recommend the hammocks in Latuvi. We chose a homestay one night and the family was very hospitable. We are avid hikers and we thought the...

We are a couple of Italians and we love walking. We made a 2 days hiking organized by Expediciones Sierra Norte. The staff, based in Oaxaca, is great and the girls are really helpful and competent. We started from Cuajimoloyas in the morning and arrive to Latuvi in the afternoon. This way is quite beautiful but the landscape is a... More
