Parking lot of the park in front of the cabanas or next to the tourism office. Toilets open from 9am to 9pm in the tourism office, no showers or other facilities. Great base for hikes through the national park. Due to the altitude quite cold at night. (Added 50 pesos / person / day admission to the National Park)
Why? By checking in after you’ve visited a place you let others know this place is still functional. You can also add or correct any information.
Awesome experience in Benito Juarez National Park. Still 50 pesos per person for park entry. We were not charged a fee to camp in our van next to the eco tourism office. There are a variety of hikes within the Benito Juarez village and you can also hire a guide for longer hikes to the other villages. We hiked to the mirador only 45 minutes up...great views and the next day we hired a guide for 300 pesos to hike to la Neveria which is a 16 km round 5.5 hour trip. Bathrooms at the ecotourism office are open from 9am to 9pm. Note that there are 2 roads from the 190 to access the park....do not take the road through teoatitlan de la Valle which is dirt, difficult and long. The better one is fully paved. Either way, there is lots of climbing, about 5000 vertical feet. Very quiet at night.Report Check-In
Benito Juarez is a small mountain village in the Sierra Norte of Oaxaca, off the beaten path. You can ask to park your rig on a small flat spot close to the ecoturism office. 60 pesos per person. There are restrooms and showers. 20 pesos to use the shower. There are also very nice cabanas woth clean restrooms available for 540 pesos for a big cabana with a fire place which includes firewood. Shared cabañas are also available for 180 per person. If you're lucky and there are not other travelers in the village then you have the cabaña all to yourself. The village has a nice an affordable restaurant and a few hikes nearby. It's about 1 hour driving from Santa Maria del Tule via a mostly dirt road. Benito Juarez is part of a group of a incredibly well organized small indigenous mountain villages called Pueblos Mancomunados which offer horseback riding, mountain biking and hiking to lookouts and waterfalls.Report Check-In
