Just back from Mexico - and myself & my girlfriend felt we should comment on a great day with Tierraventura walking around Cuajimoloyas in the Sierra Norte outside Oaxaca.
We were met punctually at our hotel by Eric - who took us up into the mountains outside Oaxaca where we met local Cuajimoloyas resident Sonia - who then guided us up into the forest for about 4 hours of informative, beautiful walking. Her knowledge of the plants her people have used for centuries was fascinating - plus she was great company and fun to be around. Eric was also good company - patient to answer a barrage of questions about Oaxaca, politics and the local indigenous people and customs.
After a great lunch in Cuajimoloyas - we finished the day with a walk up the local hill to join the festivities marking the end of Day Of The Dead - where Eric made us feel welcome amongst his friends & colleagues.... before we took the fast route back down to Cuajimoloyas on the (very fast) zipwire!
Thanks to Eric & Sonia for a fantastic, humbling and enjoyable day!
