Benito Juárez – Sierra Norte, Oaxaca

The tiny mountain village of Benito Juárez is only an hour and a half drive from Oaxaca City. Benito Juárez in the Sierra Norte of Oaxaca is a picturesque village that makes up part of a conglomerate of villages known as the Pueblos Mancomunados (Jointly Responsible Villages) who are working to assure sustainable logging and supplement their income by providing ecotourism facilities. For anybody who has visited Oaxaca’s Sierra Norte already this is brilliant news, because it would be a true tragedy should these areas of extreme natural beauty be lost forever.

Benito Juárez has many attractions for the eco-tourist and adventure seeker. This beautiful tiny mountain community offers:

Accommodation in the form of cabañas (Log Cabins) and camping areas, restaurants, mountain bike rental, tent and sleeping bag rental, guided hikes, and horse riding.

At the top of the mirador at Benito Juárez you can find a rather high lookout tower which you can climb up if you want to just get that Little bit higher to take the photo. There is also a long hanging bridge which is included in the entrance, fee and for the brave two death slides (zip lines) for an extra fee.

Benito Júarez is Rainforest Alliance and Ecoturismo certified.
