It is if they just built the place the day before you got there. All very new, nothing charming about the place. Friday at 10 AM nearly nothing open. The "market" was pathetic. Geared up for eco-tourism where they try and get you a guide to help you walk across the street. We left less than 30 minutes after we got there. If anybody wants charming then head over to Puebla around Cuetzalan.

Easy, comfortable collective van ride from Oaxaca to Ixtlan (90 min)then 15 min taxi ride. Capulapam is warm and indeed magical. Views everywhere you turn. Women putting together tezmezcal, massage, cooking, embroidery, etc experiences. A zip line. Not a touristy town. I will go back!

Capulalpam is a beautifull small town, considered "Pueblo Mágico" (wikipedia: A "Magical Village" is a place with symbolism, legends, history, important events, day-to-day life – in other words, "magic" in its social and cultural manifestations, with great opportunities for tourism.) Around Capulalpam are many cabins (EcoTurIxtlan, Llano de las Flores) that you can rent at a small cost, with zip-line's across the forest, beautifull mountain walks, horseback riding, trout fishing. At the restaurants nearby you can eat simple oaxacan food (tasajo, entomatadas, enfrijoladas) or fresh trout caught before your eyes.

We visited Calpulalpam de Mendez for the 6th anniversary of being named a Pueblo Magico. It really is a magical town, with wonderful views, a lovely church, a new 3 tier market with inexpensive small comedores, friendly and helpful people who are obviously proud of their town, and a real commitment to protecting the environment. We didn't take advantage of any of the ecotourism activities offered, but we really enjoyed the easy 15 minute walk from the cabanas to town with magnificent views of the mountains and the town the whole way. There are hotels, hostals, and pleasant cafes in town. We loved the cool and clean mountain air after the heat and fumes in Oaxaca. It takes about an hour and a half to get there by collectivo from the Benito Juarez Monument by the turn off to Tuxtepec. We'll definitely be going back!
