Wow! Exactly what we were hoping for
, May 2019
We tend to avoid bus tours and tourist crowds, but still want to take in the beauty of local sites. That's why were were so happy to come across Carlos's hike. We got to Hierve el Agua early before the tourists and had the place to ourselves to take photos and go for a swim. It was much more enjoyable than having to fight the crowds. We also beat the heat by starting our hike early. Carlos shared some cultural history and pointed out various plants and sites. The most amazing part was reaching the waterfall at La Salina which had no tourists, no locals and was this incredible hidden gem, again to ourselves. Carlos was extremely well prepared with extra waters, snacks, fruit and all that we needed. Can't wait to come back to Oaxaca to do a mountain bike trip or another adventure with Coyote Aventuras. Gracias Carlos!

Wonderful Experience

Coyote Aventuras runs an amazing trip, full of delicious, beautiful and unique experiences. I was picked up promptly in the morning, we were the very first people to arrive at Hierve El Agua (no crowds in sight) and then we hiked off the beaten path through agave fields to a hidden grotto full of unique rock formations and very refreshing water to splash around in. Breakfast at a local comedor on the way to Hierve was fresh and authentic and our picnic lunch at Las Salinas was excellent. It was nice to be able to walk through the countryside instead of just sitting in a car for hours; this seems like the only company that offers this experience. Tasting mezcal and learning about how it gets made at the end of the trip was another highlight. Everything felt low key, authentic and not touristy--perfect for visitors with more of a traveler ethos. Highly recommend!
