Lonely Planet review

Some of the most exhilarating outdoor adventures are to be had among the mountain villages of the Pueblos Mancomunados. Here, community-run Expediciones Sierra Norte maintains a network of good trails, comfortable village accommodations, and horses and bikes for rent. It’s a very good idea to visit the Expediciones office in Oaxaca before heading up to the pueblos (villages). The office has English-speaking staff and copious information on trails, villages, accommodations and transportation, and can make reservations for cabañas (cabins) and any other services you need. It also sells a useful guide-map for M$50.
