The city of Oaxaca is a paradise that amazes and leaves visitors speechless when they experience everything the state has to offer: majestic archaeological sites, colonial buildings, natural beauty, paradisiacal beaches, and the hospitality and warmth of its people who are proud of their Zapotec and Mixtec roots and who share with the world their artisanal, gastronomic and cultural heritage.
Located in the southeast of Mexico, with a pleasant
climate and surrounded by four valleys, the state of Oaxaca is a cultural mosaic, where a glorious past coexists with the present. This reflects in its monumental ruins such as Monte Alban and Mitla, in the beautiful buildings that embellish the Historic Center, –declared by the UNESCO as a World Heritage Site–, in its craft markets, which offer all kinds of regional handcrafts; from wool textiles and black clay figures, to spectacular alebrijes. Not to mention theirjoyful festivities that brighten up the pueblos and streets with color. If we want to talk about cuisine, Oaxaca is one of the states with the greatest variety of dishes to delight palates with the traditional taste of their tamales, mole, cheese and its famous mescal.
For this reason, Oaxaca is the ideal destination for tourists. Not only it possesses a vast historical heritage, it also offers splendid nature sceneries where one can accomplish exciting activities. As an example, we have the spectacular stone waterfalls of Hierve el Agua and the beautiful town of Santa Maria Tule where you can visit the incredible tule tree. For this and much more, Oaxaca is a World Heritage city.
