We went to the pueblos in the Sierra Norte last weekend (during the early part of January). We had heard it was cold but weren't quite prepared as the temperatures dipped all over the region that weekend and it was very cloudy, cold and wet. Still it was a wonderful trip as the hikes were great with a wonderful 74... 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

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
