      Oaxaca is a magical city. The skies are deep blue in the heart of the valley. Women in embroidered huipiles, colourful houses, flowers on the trees, parades and local people garnish the streets. And then there's the street art. We will be cycling around 3 neighbourhoods of the city visiting interesting spots, art workshops, and of course... street art. They are everywhere: big murals, stencils, posters. Oaxacan Artists are abundant and very talented. Its like visiting an outdoor museum. During the ride we will have time to talk about local history, culture and traditions maybe with a drink or snack. 9:00 Meeting and planning 9:10 to 13:00 Bike riding through the city

      Bigger Adventure Than Expected
      This was an unforgettable experience that I will recommend to all my friends/family who visit Oaxaca. Not only were the sights unique and beautiful, but the visit to Jeronimo's mezcal was one of my favorite memories from the whole trip. I must say, the second hike was very hard; the distance and expectations were not disclosed and I felt badly for someone on the trip who had never hiked before (they were miserable). The first hike is easy, so we didn't think twice about the second leg of the trip. But the second hike is completely exposed, challenging, long and very hot in the summer! However, it was worth it for the end destination. There was plenty of time given to us to swim in the pools and relax at the secret waterfall, I never felt like I was rushing. I appreciate that this tour starts early so we could miss the crowds and enjoy a whole day of adventure. This tour was the highlight of my visit to Oaxaca!!

      An absolute must
      The whole day was amazing! Diego was great and so passionate about not just the plants and animals of the area but the people and cultures of Mexico to. To top it all of the mezcal tasting was amazing with Jeronimo and his family who are such kind and beautiful people and it was a privilege to be welcomed into there home for a freshly cooled meal and delicious mezcals. Cannot recommend this trip enough.

      Highlight of our Oaxaca trip!
      Our private group of 11 had an amazing time!!! The food, hike, swimming, and mezcal were all perfect! Our guide, Paula, was the BEST! She really made the experience special with her genuine and deep understanding of the culture and nature around us. She was also very in tune with how the group was feeling and made sure everyone was having a great time:)

      Great Family Adventure
      This was a wonderful trip. Paolo our guide, and her sidekick Matilda, took amazing care of us. She was really knowledgeable about the area, wildlife and environment. They were able to modify the day so we could get back to Oaxaca in time for dinner, but still not make it feel rushed. I highly recommend this outfit for any area adventure.

      Highly recommended Tour!
      Amazing Tour! Recommend to take the early tour at 6am, it’s absolutely worth it! We were the first at Hierve el Agua and in general leads the challenging but serene hike through areas and spots where no other tours and tourists are allowed. My personal highlights were the „secret“ waterfall at the end of the hike and the Mezcal Tasting. We had an amazing day! Thanks again to our wonderful guide Marlene, Jeronimo for the thorough tasting and everybody who helped to make this day so beautiful

      Fantastic day including culture and nature
      Must do experience in Oaxaca! Our tour guide Santiago was very knowledgeable and helpful. He took the time to get to know everyone and was happy to go at the groups own pace. The tour is organised well and sensitive to local customs and environmental needs. The trip took us to the best view points to see the petrified waterfall and to some amazing swimming spots. The hike is mostly downhill but does include two uphills at the end which in the heat are a challenge. If you find the first walk difficult seriously consider the option of taking the mini bus to the next stop. The textile village is a great contrast to the main city of Oaxaca and gives a taste of local life. The home cooked food and textile demonstration was a highlight.

      Hierve el Agua Highly Recommend!
      Our hike to Hierve el Agua was easily a highlight of our trip to Oaxaca. In addition to our incredibly knowledgable guide Paola, Coyote Aventuras has built relationships with local communities that have lived there for generations, granting their groups access to stories, hiking trails and an additional swimming area not always available to visitors. You leave with a sense of the people and culture behind the place. Practically, Coyote Aventuras also plans snacks, beverages, breakfast and lunch into the trip so you feel well taken care of. Cannot recommend enough.

      Incredible Day of Adventures!
      We had the most wonderful adventure hiking and exploring local textiles with Santiago and Jorge Luis! Both meals were delicious and allowed us to have a traditional Oaxacan breakfast and lunch! There was lots of snacks provided in addition to the two large meals. At each stop there was also a local guide who provided lots of information and Santiago was able to help us translate. The company has clearly worked to build relationships with different individuals in the community to provide them business and also were very kind in making sure to provide snacks for the local guides in addition to us. We hiked a total of 10 km and had the opportunity to swim in two locations. Each guide took the time to answer lots of our questions. We would highly recommend Coyote adventures to anyone traveling to Oaxaca and hopefully can participate in another tour during our next trip!

      Highlight of our trip
      Our day in Valles Centrales was wonderful! The others in our group canceled, so we essentially had a private tour. Santiago was a fantastic tour guide - friendly, knowledgeable, and able to tailor the experience to our group. Our driver Jorge Luis was excellent as well. Would highly recommend this tour. We started with a shorter (2 km) hike around Hierve el Agua, followed by time relaxing in their pools. We then hiked 8 km to La Salinas to a cascade with a pool. This hike was described as “easy” - while not challenging, we would recommend hiking boots over sneakers. Sunscreen and water essential. Ending the visit with Josefina and her family was lovely. The food was delicious and their rugs and woven goods were beautiful. You have the option of purchasing items there. Coyote Aventuras took great care of us and provided snacks, water, a first aid kit, and more. If you go on this trip, be sure to bring a change of clothes after the hike and cash to tip the local guides and Josefina’s family for your lunch.

      Lovely company offering brilliant hikes outside of the city
      We did two hikes with Coyote during our week in Oaxaca - Ixtepi Forest and Hierve al Agua + Mezcal experience. Paola and Diego were passionate guides who were so informative and always on hand to help. It was great to escape the city on both occasions to see more of the surrounding area. Unfortunately we had originally booked to go on the historic trail hike but that was cancelled a few days before as they didn't reach the minimum booking number. We always understood that was a risk but were really disappointed as we'd booked that months in advance. Our replacement hike in Ixtepi was still great though. Paola laid on a brilliant picnic spread and taught us all about the forest. The hike was a good level. A bit of a workout to reach the summit for a brilliant view but not too hard. Would recommend. The second hike was Hierve al Agua + Mezcal experience. A very early start and a shame not to capitalise on that and go straight to the site. Would have preferred to skip the cafe breakfast and eat something there. Hikes were surprisingly tough given they were all mainly downhill but the heat made it tricky. It made the swim spots really worthwhile. Particularly loved the 'secret' second swim spot. The mezcal experience was pretty good - in a very rustic setting with a nice family running it. The experience itself went on a bit too long though. I appreciate the generosity but you would need to LOVE mezcal to really appreciate it, not your average taster. Could shorten that section down to 1.5 hours instead of 3. Overall would definitely recommend booking with Coyote when you're in Oaxaca just make sure you read the details of what you're booking carefully!

      10/10 tour
      This was the best tour I’ve ever been on. Thank you, you organised the most amazing trip we will recommend to others! The tour was the perfect length with breaks from the heat to swim. We didn’t pass any other groups or tourists and it felt like a really authentic guide to the local area (which is beautiful). The family who hosted us for Mezcal tasting were passionate and welcoming. Highlight of our trip to Mexico and I can’t recommend more!

      Wonderful long day of varied experiences.
      A long, sometimes hard, wonderful day! We started early, 6am, and headed out to the countryside and enjoyed an authentic Oaxacan breakfast at a family restaurant where 5 generations live. Our second stop was El Hievre de Agua. We started at the top and hiked down, around, and up. This allowed great differing views. The hike up was steep and does require a small bit of climbing but the reward is the 3 pools and valley views. We had ample time there before heading down to a box canyon. This trail is very rocky, steep at times, and full of sand so closed toed shoes with good treads are a must. The box canyon has a small stream ending with a small waterfall. You don't need water shoes but there are some uncomfortable rocks as you walk. The rock formations and seeping water are beautiful. Lastly, a stop at a small family owned and run mezcal producer. We learned an incredible amount about the labor intensive process to grow, harvest, and produce mezcal. We left with an immense appreciation for Mezcal and a nice meal. Our guide, Diego, was friendly and knowledgeable. In sum, this is a wonderful experience. It is very hot so bring lots of water, sunscreen, good shoes for hiking, and be prepared for some steep climbs and decent. I borrowed hiking poles and was very happy they were available.

      Fun but Challenging!
      Santiago was an amazing tour guide! This tour was great, but there are some things that travelers should know before signing on. This tour was not "intermediate" in terms of ability. I would say this is an "advanced" experience. I am in good shape, exercise regularly, and these hikes were VERY difficult. My 9 year old only managed to complete the first hike around Hierve el Agua (2 km straight down and straight up). The second hike (8 km) was much harder than the first, and not something my child could do. It's steep downhill on very loose rock -- lots of slipping, tripping and hard on the knees. You need to be in very good shape for these hikes. Also, the "hot springs" that were actually ice cold. There is not much time to relax by the water -- 45 minutes including time to dress and undress. Las Salinas, the waterfall and canyon, was really beautiful and a highlight of the day. Lunch is served around 3:30-4:00 pm, so one should bear that in mind when making dinner reservations. (You get a big breakfast around 7 am, then snacks of trail mix and fruit around 11 am, then more snacks after the hike around 1 pm.) We did not get back to Oaxaca until 6:30 pm. Overall, a great experience, but it was a long day of a lot of physical exertion.

      Highlight trip of Oaxaca
      A truly amazing experience. Our guide Paula was fantastic, and added so much to the experience with her knowledge, personality, and wonderful spirit. Everything about the trip was special, from the sunrise drive through the mountains, the breakfast in a traditional village home courtyard, learning about the self-governing villages, walking in the desert landscape learning about the different plants, and the amazingly special petrified waterfall itself. The hike was very hot, but the swimming at the end amazing. As the weaving village Teotitlan, the women who showed us the weaving process was clearly passionate about her work and it felt like she geniunely enjoyed showing us -- rather than some of the other villages where it felt more pro-forma. I will definitely do another trip with them.

      A full day, culturally-immersive adventure that is well-worth your time!
      What an amazing day! You start at 6AM at Coyote Aventuras' office, but we promise it's worth the early start. We headed straight out of the city to Hierve el Agua. The drive is about 1.5 hours, so there's time to rest after the early start. Once up in the village near the waterfall we stopped at a family-run restaurant with an outdoor kitchen. We had a delicious breakfast and were stuffed by the end. Our time at Hierve el Agua was a great mixture of easy/moderate hiking and time by the pools. It's good to be aware that these springs are COLD water, not hot. They are mineral springs, but not thermal springs. Nevertheless, at 10:30AM in February it was in the high 70s-80sF outside in full sun, and we all took a swim to have the experience! It's worth it. There are also changing rooms and bathrooms ($5 pesos for the bathrooms, so bring small change) so you have a space to change / dry off.) After our time at Hierve el Agua, we proceeded to hike across some valleys, agave fields and oak woods to get to a canyon waterfall that felt like an oasis. We were able to rest or wade in the river without feeling rushed. The hike was very exposed, so you should wear a hat, sunscreen, sunglasses, and have a long-sleeve shirt to avoid getting burned. Carry more water than you think you need, and wear sturdy hiking / tennis shoes. They were very respectful of people's different hiking paces. We felt very safe and looked after all along the way. These local communities do a lot with tourism, and they really go above and beyond to provide comfort and kindness. Just make sure to show respect for being on their land. After our hike and swim, we headed back in the air-conditioned van to go back down into the valley to Union Zapata to the Rancho Vale Madre for our mid-afternoon lunch and mezcal tasting. Jeronimo taught us about his artesenal mezcal process while his wife served us a hearty lunch at their family's dining table. It was an intimate and attentive experience, and we felt very lucky. We were back to Oaxaca City by 6PM and felt so grateful for such a detailed, in-depth experience! It's was an amazing opportunity.

    We had heard how excellent this tour was from friends, and it did not disappoint. Our guide was very knowledgeable and gave us a lot of information on the various techniques and styles, symbolism and word play and background of the street art. We also visited a couple of studios and print shops. A great half day tour and well worth the price. Thank you!

    A very unique way to understand the history and evolution of Mexico and Oaxaca through graphic art. Scratch beneath the surface to better understand the politics, struggles and real social issues at play. Art with a Conscious. Shai was our guide. She is passionate, exuberant and committed to providing guests with an honest representation of the upsides and downsides of Mexican and Oaxahacan life. Shai has an excellent command of English and her commentary during the tour was thoughtful and very illuminating. Art as a form of beauty and social protest - a reminder of the gritty and sad parts of history and current issues that must be acknowledged and addressed to bring about positive changes. Shai was successfully able to keep the trip upbeat & positive. Her exhuberance and sheer joy in appreciating beauty, natural and created, is inspiring; as is her indomitable spirit of hopefulness laced with a wonderful dollop of keeping it real! That was the best part of the day for me. The bike tour itself was fun, but do not expect to be cycling any distance. These street bikes are just a means of getting from one piece of art to the next. The stops we made added value- we were given water and trail mix at a cool food court and we also met with several artists who demonstrated their techniques. and if you have any questions about Mezcal, Shai is your girl. Thanks, Shai for giving us a great tour.

    One of our favorite tours anywhere. The wall art in Oaxaca is brilliant and tells a thousand stories guaranteed to make you smarter and more connected to Oaxaca and its history. Carlos Hernandez is no typical tour guide. Rather he is a wise social entrepreneur and a keen student of history and politics. You cannot find a better tour experience.

    The mural bike tour was my favorite part of my trip to Oaxaca. Jesse was a fantastic tour guide. She had so much knowledge & passion for the art,artists and community. It was inspiring. We saw so much great art, learned about the artists, community & history of Oaxaca. Meeting some muralists and seeing them at work was a thrill. Marie was such a sweetheart too. I would recommend this tour to anyone who loves art & wants to have a fun day exploring Oaxaca. The bike ride was moderate and most people would be able to handle it. Such a fun day!

    Had the most amazing time with our tour guide Carlos who led the most thoughtful tour on the history and politics of Oxaca as shown through the beautiful street art. There's a massive culture of art and politics in Oxaca so would reccomend doing this tour early on in your visit! Was a great tour to do on Christmas day as the roads were extremely quiet. Bike riding was the best way to see the city and some parts we would never have thought of visiting otherwise. Really fun tour and good level of strenuousness. Highly highly reccomend

    Jesi showed us the murals around the city and taught us about the sociopolitical art that we find in the city. We learned about the protests of 2006 and how people used art as expression. We saw many examples of how Oaxacan art celebrates the ancient and the modern. We visited a student workshop that produces mostly prints from linocuts and wood cuts and another artist studio / printshop in a gallery. Bring a backpack so that you can carry anything you might buy. I would recommend bringing at least $1500 mxn to purchase some prints from the students and the artist studio. The bikes we used are mountain bikes with decent suspension which made it easy to ride on the cobblestone streets. We explored the neighborhoods of centro, xochimilco and jalatlaca. Jesi provided trail mix an eco friendly bottle with purified water which was easily stored on the holder on the bike frame. Be sure to eat breakfast before you head out!

    Besides getting around on a bike, which is always fun, learning a bit about the ubiquitous, highly varied, extremely creative and imaginative street art is just great . Gives an insight into not only the art culture, but the living history and pride of the locals. Some very moving and wild stuff up there on the walls! A knowledgeable guide such as ours makes all the difference. If only the bikes weren’t on their last legs... nah, I’d still HIGHLY recommend.

    This was our second trip to Oaxaca we have seen many of the city's beautiful murals. What makes this tour special are the insights into the background of how the murals are made, who makes them, and the meanings of the rich symbolism they contain. Jesse was a great tour guide and gave us a deep dive into each mural's backstory. A very educational and enjoyable way to spend a morning.

    Margeaux's knowledge and enthusiasm spilled out with every single mural art she took us to. There was plenty of opportunity for questions and her pace in walking from one mural to another was just perfect-not too rushed and not too slow. We all learned so much about local artists, politics and culture. You cannot leave Oaxaca City without having had this experience!!! Thank you Margaux!
