All About Oaxaca

Monte Alban, Oaxaca

Situated in Mexico’s central valley, Oaxaca is protected by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site for its Spanish colonial buildings and nearby archaeological center, Monte Alban. It’s the capital of the Oaxaca State with roughly 260,000 residents and enjoys a mild, spring-like climate year round.

Come now and discover Oaxaca, a city known for its thriving artisan community best seen around the Zocalo, the colonial center’s main square. Its diverse population consists of over a dozen ethnic groups like the Mixtecs and Zapotecs, who bring the city to life with a variety of traditions, dances, music, languages and cuisine. All this is present in numerous museums, art galleries, open-air markets, outdoor cafes, restaurants and picturesque cobblestone streets.
