Oaxaca Holiday

Delicious regional dishes, varied history and captivating natural beauty combine in this southern Mexican city.

Oaxaca in southern Mexico is named after the state in which it resides. Tucked into the foothills of the Sierra Madre ranges, the city is known for its natural beauty and distinctive architecture. Visitors love the year-round temperate climate. Most of Oaxaca is easily accessible on foot.  

The Zócalo is the hub of Oaxacan culture, both past and present. Its large, open plaza often holds musical performances and street fairs. From the square, admire the Cathedral of Oaxaca and Alameda de Leon, a spacious park offering vendor markets and regional handicrafts. Save room in your suitcase for the area’s famous pottery and carved goods.

The Church of Santo Domingo de Guzmán presents awe-inspiring Baroque architecture. The former covenant has been transformed into the Oaxaca Cultural Center, a museum of historical artifacts. See the “Treasures from Tomb 7,” the remains of a Zapotec tomb containing precious gemstones and jewels. The Jardin Ethnobotanical Garden is an ideal place to enjoy Oaxaca’s stunning native plants under brilliant sunshine.

Oaxaca is renowned for outdoor marketplaces and savory foods, all of which are at your fingertips during your stay. The region is particularly famous for its tomales, moles, and creamy hot chocolate.

Visit Oaxaca for one of its many festivals happening throughout the year. The most popular are the Day of the Dead, held three days each autumn, and Guelaguetza, a widely attended summer folk dance festival. 

Soak up local history at one of Oaxaca’s many museums. The Contemporary Art Museum (MACO) inhabits one of the city’s oldest buildings, which is a sight to behold itself. It also offers works from regional artists. 

Take a daytrip to Monte Alban, an internationally protected heritage site. Located less than twenty minutes outside the city center, the ancient site is one of the oldest Mesoamerican cities in the world. Explore the pyramids and temples to peek into the hub of Zapotec-era culture. 

Oaxaca’s Xoxocotlán International Airport is located five miles (eight kilometers) outside the city and offers connecting flights to Mexico City and Houston daily.
