TRIP DESCRIPTION My trek through the the Sierra Nortes spanned 25 miles in three days, starting with a 3000 foot descent from Cuajimoloyas (~10,500) down to Latuvi where I spent the first night. The village is exceptionally peaceful, warm and thoughtful locals and fantastic food. The next day's walk to Amatlan was the finest of my route. It follows a... More

I just can't get over how varied the landscape is in Mexico. I'd seen beaches, jungle, grasslands, volcanoes and cities on previous trips but I had no idea just how much evergreen forest there is until visiting the Pueblos Mancomunados. The mountains in which the Pueblos are located are gorgeous and the cabanas are lovely (if a little on the... More

These isolated towns give you a feel for what the real Mexico is like. People are friendly and in Lachetao there is a colonial church partially restored with an incredible silver altar. We ate at the communal dining room in Lachetao and really enjoyed the special mole they served. In both Lachetao and La Neveria we stayed in the eco... More

My wife and I spent one night in Benito Juarez and one night in Nevaria. We hiked between the villages one day, did some ziplining in Nevaria, and mountain biked back to Benito Juarez. In short, this was one of the best experiences of our lives. The unique combination of beautiful outdoors scenery/activities and Zapoteco villages is like nothing else... More

Five of us spent 3 days hiking between villages in early March. The scenery was amazing! Our guides were knowledgeable and friendly, describing the local culture, flora and fauna. We really enjoyed the simple yet delicious meals after a good day of hiking. The food was very fresh and authentic to the region. The lodging was comfortable and simple. Each... More

We spent two nights in the village of Benito Juarez. The food was great, the people friendly and it was a nice respit from the heat in Oaxaca. I learned to make tortillas and watched the grinding of masa. Can't say enough about the wonderful experience. Want to return and walk to more villages. The cabin we stayed in was... More

We went on a 3 day 2 night hike...it was a wonderful experience. I was so impressed with the communities and the whole coordination of the program. The hikes were gorgeous...we went as high as 3000+meters to 2400m so saw range of landscapes and terrain. The cabanas were wonderful, clean, with fireplaces. the food was simple but good and the...

We booked a three day hike through Tierraventura in Oaxaca. They picked us up at our hotel and took us to Llano Grande (3200 m) for the first hike. The second 15 km hike to Latuvi started from Cuajimoloyas. The last day we walked Camino Royal to Lachato/Amatlan, 12 km. The Pueblos Mancomunados consist of eight villages that have developed...

We came here during their annual festival in October and had one of our best weekends in 5 months in Oaxaca. Wonderful music and traditional dancing, delicious trout and short hikes, great stay in beautiful cabins, rainbows, the usual juegos mecanicos, and the usual incredibly nice people.

You can't miss this square. Central in town. Surrounded by restaurants, bars and terraces inviting for a drink and for typical dshes. Big chance that you'll see and hear an music band playing at the square or in some street nearby.
