Cuajimoloyas is one of the communities of Pueblos Mancomunados. It is located almost at 9,843 feet (3,000 meters) above sea level. This program begins in the community at 9:00 am.
Once in Cuajimoloyas, enjoy a delicious breakfast with hot chocolate, bread, and typical “memelitas” (corn bread with beans) or your favorite eggs. Then, you will meet your guide and start your hike to the Coyote Canyon. You will enter oak-pine forests, very characteristic of the region, and visit a water hole, a source of fresh water springing from a boulder. You will continue afterwards on the trail until the canyon, to observe its astonishing caves. You will also be able to gaze at the splendid scenery from some natural outlooks.
Back in town, a typical meal will be waiting for you in one of the community restaurants. Before leaving, you will have an hour of spare time to visit the town or the Yaa-cuetzi outlook for a wonderful view of the town.
If you are brave and adventurous enough, how about experiencing the longest zipline in the state of Oaxaca? There is a 0.6-mile (1-kilometer) line that departs from the Yaa-cuetzi outlook and crosses most of the town! Let us know if you would like to add this adventure for an additional cost.
The tour will come to an end at 16:00 pm.
