"Mágico Oaxaca" Tour: Who could resist falling under the spell of ‘Magic Town’? This stop is included in this day trip taking in Guelatao-Capulálpam, Ixtlan de Juarez and Mendez. This comprehensive day tour includes the famous attraction St Paul Guelatao, the birthplace of Don Benito Juarez, Father of the Americas. As you circumnavigate the scenic lake, be transported back to life in the time of Don Benito.
This second destination is pretty Ixtlan Juarez, a town that time forgot, nestled in the heart of the Sierra. Visit the town’s majestic eighteenth century Church to view magnificent baroque altarpieces, before stepping outside to take in a breathtaking view of the Villa.
Adventurous visitors can try their hand at rappelling or zip-lining, two of the eco-tourism ventures available in the valley.
Take time to wander the streets of Capulalpam Mendez town. Learn about its history as a gold mining town, before community action eradicated the industry to protect the stunning surrounding environment – an ongoing battle that continues to this day.
