Rancho Buenavista — Oaxaca City, Oaxaca
Outdoor Adventure Tours • (H)
From its headquarters, a ranch twenty minutes outside the city in full view of Monte Albán, Rancho Buenavista leads guided rock climbing, hiking, and mountain biking outings in the valleys and Sierra Norte and to the Pacific coast, as well as mountaineering expeditions outside of the state to the summits of the Pico de Orizaba, La Malinche, and Iztaccíhuatl volcanoes. A stay at the ranch is in itself a worthwhile experience, with comfortable cabañas (Mex$300, or pitch a tent for only Mex$50), nearby hiking trails, and interesting villages within walking distance. Their website has detailed information on outings and accommodations.
