Oaxaca

Oaxaca

The city of Oaxaca is the capital of the Mexican state of the same name. The historic city centre, Oaxaca’s colonial heart, contains narrows straight streets, liberally sprinkled with lovely stone buildings. Oaxaca’s atmosphere can only be described as relaxed but stimulating, remote but cosmopolitan. Old colonial buildings, shady plazas or leisurely cafes invite to relax. But at the same time Oaxacean, Mexican and international influences create excitement. First-class museums and galleries, probably the best handicraft shopping in Mexico and a great variety of bars, cafés, festivals and a fun music scene await Oaxaca’s visitors. People should taste the city’s traditional cuisine such as the “Tamales”, the “7 Moles” or the typical regional drink of “Mezcal”. The near -by Zapatecan and Mixtecan archaeological zones of Monte Alban and Mitla are a big MUST for all visitors.For those who also admire beautiful natural countryside, the “Benito Juarez” Park or the waterfalls “Petreas de Hierve el Agua” will be just the right place to visit.
