The hike from Latuvi to Amatlan was wonderful, magical, and mi guia Arturo was knowledgable, energetic and friendly. I booked with expediciones sierra norte. Its cash only - pesos only - so plan accordingly. Considering that the price is somewhat fair, this was ok with me. Big plus that the small villages receive the cash directly. These people are living... More

We rented a car for US$34 to drive to Cuajimoloyas, one of the Pueblos Mancomunados in the Sierra Juarez. We were going to hike with a guide and there was one at the tourist office that day. Unfortunately it was very cold and very rainy so we had a good lunch at the restaurant recommended. Then we drove back to... More

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our 3-day village-to-village hikes in the Pueblos Mancomunados, from Benito Juarez to Cuajilmoloyas to Llano Grande (we did each leg in a little less than 3 hours, with no breaks). We stayed 2 nights in the cabins and hiked with local guides (spanish language) each day. If you are visiting Oaxaca for an extended... More

The collective of towns in the Sierra Norte that include Benito Juaréz, Llano Grande, La Neveria, Amatlán, Lachato, Latuvi, and Cuajilamoyas are known as the Pueblos Malcomunados which mean "towns among the clouds". Each town has its individual beauty but I would highly recommend visiting Llano Grande, Amatlán, Latuvi and Benito Juaréz. You can book a full day or multiple... More

We went on a private tour to one of the pueblos. It was only a day trip, but was worth it. The drive there was beautiful, we had a very nice lunch, some of us hiked to the top of hill where there's an archeological site.

We're a 20-something couple and did a 4 day hiking excursion to Cuajimoloyas, Latuvi, La Neveria and Benito Juarez. We had an amazing time seeing the beauty of the cloud forest, and many of our guides were amazing with tons of knowledge to share about local plants and reforestation projects. We also did the ziplines in Cuajimoloyas and Benito Juarez,... More

We’re a 60-ish couple who did a three-day hike with Expediciones Sierra Norte in December 2014, travelling between Cuajimoloyas and San Miguel Amatlan. The friendly staff at the Oaxaca office (Luisa, who spoke good English) quickly helped us decide on a route and length. We’d highly recommend this experience, starting with the bus/taxi/truck trips to and from the villages and... More

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
