WELCOME TO OAXACA

Everything is colourful in Oaxaca. A city of Spanish elegance — cobblestone streets are lined with flame-red poinciana trees, pastel-hued colonial mansions and imposing 17th century Baroque architecture.

Shaded plazas host lively, open-air markets showcasing ancestral Oaxacan crafts, and imposing historic churches. The food in Oaxaca is some of the best to be found across Mexico, and the affable Oaxaqueños will treat you to a culinary journey through their culture, most famously chapulines (crickets!) con mole (with sauce).

Outside of the city are the valleys of the lofty Sierra Madre mountains. Here, rows of spiked agave plants are cultivated to create mezcal – tequila’s smoky cousin – which Oaxaca is famed for. Hidden amongst the rugged mountains are the archaeological sites of Monte Alban and Mitla – UNESCO World Heritage Sites which are well worth a visit.

To the south, Oaxaca boasts a pristine stretch of Pacific coast. The secluded port town of Puerto Escondido – known for its expansive beaches and excellent surf – is one of the best spots to unwind after a few nights in this lively, colourful city.
