Lonely Planet review
This friendly team headed by Mexican Olympic cyclist Pedro Martínez offers a variety of exciting, mostly off-road rides (as well as some great day walks) amid some of Oaxaca state’s best scenery. Van support cuts out the less interesting bits and hardest climbs. The shortest options are half-day or full-day rides in the Valle de Tlacolula: the full-day option costs M$1350 per person for two people or M$1150 with four.
The two-day ‘Cascadas y Mangos’ jaunt (M$2550 to M$2900 per person) runs from Nochixtlán to spectacular Santiago Apoala, then across the scenic Tehuacán-Cuicatlán biosphere reserve. The three- or four-day Ruta Los Coatlanes takes you right down to Puerto Escondido on the Pacific coast, crossing the Sierra Madre del Sur, for M$5610 to M$5900 per person.
