FLICKR ALBUM: Responsible Travel


Named after the illustrious President Benito Juárez, Oaxaca's Sierra Juárez is an expansive territory known for its rich cultural and environmental diversity.

There are great hiking and biking trails as well guide service and basic accomodation.

It's sometimes known as the Sierra Norte, but locals call this mountainous region the Sierra Juárez.

TIPS

Prepare for the cold! As the elevation climbs in the Sierra, the temperatures plunge.

It's important to note that tourism in the region, as opposed to Oaxaca City or the Central Valleys, is about a decade old. This requires additional patience on the part of travelers and locals alike.

Travel in the Sierra Juárez is off the beaten path. Travelers might find it easier to set up hikes and community visits in person than by making reservations on the Web.

One suggestion -- independent travelers should brush up on their Spanish! Knowing key words en español facilitates trips into rural areas.

A FEW WORDS ABOUT TIME -- Please note that much of rural Mexico, including the Sierra Juárez, does not observe daylight savings time, so double check your watch. TIME
