We went up to the village of Benito Juarez on a private tour. Signed up for a Car and driver for eight hours and we picked the destinations. It would have been much cheaper to rent a car, though neither of us were interested in driving anywhere near Oaxaca city, so the private car for the day seemed like our... More

I went with some friends from Mexico City on a mountain biking trip. We had high expectations, and they were all highly exceeded. The views, the people, the food, the housing, everything is perfect. Safety is no issue, as this place is well taken care of and far away from any trouble in Oaxaca City. I contacted Expediciones Sierra Norte... More

Super high quality accomodations, local guides, traditional food and drinks, pure air, nature. And still you can choose between MTB, hikking or horse riding. Organization and quality like the best trail spots on Europe, awesome. I recomend Sierra Norte Expedidiones - made by zapotecs descendants.

Take warm clothes, it gets cold at night at these altitudes. Food provided in a very rustic eatery. For the brave there is a Zip wire that... More

This company speaks only Spanish, but can provide an English speaking guide. It is well worth it to learn all about the History and biodiversity of this country. Clean well-equipped cabins for overnightining

Sierra Norte Tours took us to the annual "Feria Regional De Hongos Silvestes", a two day event in the Sierra Norte mountains of Cuajimolayas, one of the Mancomunado villages. The festival is held in July after the rains have brought out the mushrooms, the date varying year to year. Driven from town to the village plaza, we were divided into... More

The landascape are nothing special, local people aren't friendly. A place that could be easily skipped from your trip itinerary. I don't know why Lonely planet reccomended it. In particular, I'm speaking about Llano Grande pueblo.

We spent three days in April in the Pueblos with our young daughters (9 and 11), and had a fantastic time. We stayed one night in Cuajimoloyas in the cabañas la Parcela, set in a beautiful forest outside of town, and hiked the next day with a guide to Benito Juarez, where our girls went zip lining, which was a...

The towns are in the picturesque Sierra Norte, just over an hour from Oaxaca. We went for a long weekend and visited 3 of the towns. The cabins are clean and and well maintained (but some are adjoining... More

We did a four day hike booked at the Sierra norte agency. Everything was organized perfectly and you could rrally design your own trip (for example, we did one day by horse). The views are amazing and the villages are nice. Recommended if you like trekking and seeing more of life in mexican villages
