11 of the best Things to See and Do in Oaxaca, Oaxaca, Mexico (B)

Oaxaca (pronounced wa-Ha-ca) is a vibrant, culinary rich, authentic Mexican colonial city that you should plan to include on your next visit to Mexico, if you haven’t already.

After travelling from Mexico City to Puebla we were excited to visit Oaxaca. We had heard so much about its history, colourful streets, great rooftop dining and the ruins of Monte Alban from other travellers we just could not wait to visit. Oaxaca did not disappoint us, and we will definitely return to enjoy the city’s hospitality and its gastronomic delights. We know you will too! It is just that special city that you will visit time and time again.

The first thing you should do on arrival is to head to the Zocalo, find yourself a restaurant, order a beer and people watch. It is an easy city to walk around, so you will not need to hire a car unless you want to visit sites outside the city such as Monte Alban, which you can visit on a tour.

The state of Oaxaca is located in the southeastern area of Mexico and its capital is Oaxaca de Juarez. ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
