Mexico: Oaxaca

Visit Us

Oaxaca is a charming city with a long and eventful history. Separated from Mexico City to the north by rugged mountains and dotted with small weaving and craft villages, the isolated region has ploughed its own furrow, forging its own distinctive identity. Known as Mexico’s artistic centre, Oaxaca embodies both indigenous and colonial features, the markets, artisan workshops, rituals and multiple fiestas reflecting the native culture while the baroque architecture, plazas and museums bear witness to the Spanish influence. The Zapotec and Mixtec people’s ancient sites at Monte Albán, Yagul and Mitla are as impressive as the Mayan ruins in the south and east.

What our experts say

Oaxaca is a wonderful place to spend a couple of days. I loved the historical centre, with pedestrianised zones and colourful colonial houses ... a lovely place to chill out; with great shops selling all type of handicrafts and for all tastes There are loads of markets to visit: my favourite, “Central de Abastos”, is huge and in an edgy area, but very interesting .
