There was a hurricane off the coast which meant it was drizzling basically the whole weekend, but that kept temperatures reasonable. The huge biting red ants were not though, and my left leg is periodically driving me crazy with itchiness from the 4 enormous lumps of bites that do not seem to be diminishing. Still worth it.
I’m really glad I got to tag along, because this place is definitely somewhere on the extreme side of “tucked away,” which made it all the more special.

some type of oriole in picture nr. 4?
I’ve sent the unidentified bird pics to the experts. Hope to have answers soon. I’m trying to remember if I can recall mention of an oriole, but I’m just not sure.
How do you get there? I read that there is a bus from Mexico City that arrives at 5.00 a.m. There is another option? Can you get to the canyon by your own or you have to hire a guide?
I left from Puebla and stayed overnight in TehuacÃ¡n before heading out to the CaÃ±Ã³n on smaller bus and then truck via TeotitlÃ¡n and then to Tecomavaca. So, I have no information about travel from Mexico City.
A friend arranged the visit, so I’m not sure if a guide is required, but I would recommend it. I would check here: https://www.facebook.com/ReservateMX for info. Their independent website is still under construction.
