Traveler Reviews


A once in a lifetime experience

My sister and I spent 4 days hiking in the Sierra Norte villages including Capulalpam and Lachatao. We were guided by a local guide on each hike and by a fantastic English translator/guide named Mario who accompanied us for the entire trip. He was kind, funny and intuitive with a deep knowledge of the culture and the area as he is a native of Oaxaca himself. He had impeccable English and he made the trek so enjoyable for us, it was like hiking with a good friend! We stayed in lovely comfortable cabins and were welcomed warmly by people we met in these beautiful communities. I cannot recommend this trip enough.
