Oaxaca

Set in Mexico’s rugged southern highlands, Oaxaca’s distinct regional identity makes it a charming destination. Cobblestone streets, colonial houses and ornate churches lead you to a Cathedral with gold-plated interiors.

But the real fun lies in the town’s lively markets where you can peruse colourful displays of hand-crafted goods, showcasing the distinct artistry of the region. Home to weaving communities, black-clay potters and wood-whittling artisans, Oaxaca’s people are immensely proud of their cultural identity and still use traditional techniques to create their goods. Be sure to pick up a hand-woven blanket from Teotitlandel Valle, where we’ll introduce you to local artisans in their studios.

The surrounding hills are perfect for cycling and hiking, just a short drive from Monte Alban, a pre-Columbian archaeological site and UNESCO World Heritage Site with an intriguing history…
