Llano Grande – Sierra Norte, Oaxaca


The beautiful mountain village of San Isidro Llano Grande is only an hour and forty minutes drive from Oaxaca City. Llano Grande in the Sierra Norte of Oaxaca is a peaceful 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.

Llano Grande is completely enclosed by large trees and the village itself is built atop a large flat plane right at the top of a mountain. San Isidro Llano Grande was originally formed by people fleeing the Mexican revolution.
Llano Grande has accommodation in the form of Cabañas (Log Cabins), and also offers restaurant facilities, camping, mountain bike rental and guided hikes. At Llano Grande it’s possible to see a large variety of fauna and flora, picturesque small streams and the El Pinovete waterfall.

San Isidro Llano Grande is Rainforest Alliance and Ecoturismo certified.

To get to Llano Grande from Oaxaca City the easiest way is to head to Tlacolula and turn left and head straight up to the mountains, pass through Cuajimoloyas and the Next village is Llano Grande.

If you don’t have a car then you can either take a tour or get a Colectivo or bus from Tlacolula or the Central de Abastos in Oaxaca City.
