It was cool to see the Cocora Valley. The Pueblo is small and there is only one street that is full of color and life (which could be overwhelming for those who prefer solitude, nature and quietness) Better to visit it on weekdays.

Check whether there are any holidays around the time of your trip. Renting a jeep to Cocora Valley on Saturday took less than 10 minutes, but by Sunday it was an hour long wait due to holiday travelers. Also, watch your step for horse poop.
