Day Hike - Guacamaya
9:00 AM
Oaxaca Lending Library
Description:
There is a small waterfall in the dense forest at Guacamaya, a small village on the flank of the mountains north of Oaxaca. There are also miles of logging roads and hiking trails crisscrossing the area and an observation tower atop El Portillo. These make for a satisfying trek through the woods. There is a 15 peso charge to visit the waterfall. Hike participants may choose to take sack lunches or enjoy a fresh-caught trout dinner at a local restaurant, which should cost about 150-200 pesos for food and beverage.

PANDEMIC PROTOCOL: For everyone's safety, hike participants must show proof of vaccination when boarding the van the morning of the hike, and must wear face masks when traveling in the van. Masks may be removed when out on the trail. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation!
