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.

These towns are fantastic! They are perfectly set up for tourists with cabins, information centers, community restaurnts, hiking trails and assorted activities. 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

My wife, myself, and a friend, chose to do a four night, three day hiking trip in the Sierra Norte de Oaxaca. This was a challenging hike, covering over 50km in the four days, but it was worth it for the fantastic views and scenery. The guides were helpful, although spoke only Spanish. The food and accommodation provided at different... More

Each of the pueblos are easy to visit by yourself (especially if you have a car). Reserving via the sierra norte website is not necessary as each town has a tourism office where you can book hikes or cabanas for half the costs. We rented a cabana for 2 nights and did a full day hike around one of the... More

I give 5 stars and a strong recommendation to visiting the Sierra Norte. The landscape is just stunning -- mountains upon mountains with deep river canyons and lush pine forests. I give 5 stars to our guides and to the cabins, meals, and trail quality. The cabins were also comfy and the hospitality great (we visited Llano Grande, Latuvi, and... More

The hardest part about this place was getting there. The best way is to take a collectivo taxi from Oaxaca City to Ixtlan, and then hire a separate taxi to Lachatao. We reserved ahead with Veronica (see the Lonely Planet for info on this and other Pueblos Mancomunados villages), and she was there to greet us when we got there.... More
