    My favorite of all the zocalos I saw in Mexico. There is always something happening, and most importantly (for me at least) always something to eat. Get the potato chips (fully loaded with all of the hot sauce and lime juice), from anyone who is selling them, don't think twice about it. We found ourselves wandering back here a few ...

    Monte Alban

    One of the most underrated of all of Latin American ruins. A half day at the very least is needed to explore the grounds. The views from here are amazing.

    Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Oaxaca

    4 reviews

    We happened upon this museum on one of our daily wanderings about and were not disappointed. It is a lovely and totally manageable museum. It is very well curated and laid out and doesn't overwhelm.

    Church of Santo Domingo de Guzmán

    2 reviews

    Not all of Oaxaca’s many ex-convents are alike, and Santo Domingo is the best of them. Not only is the spectacular church and adjacent plaza the city’s prime wedding-watching spot and a popular place for meeting friends, but the convent houses Oaxaca’s finest museum. It’s easy to spend hours walking the museum’s arched hallways, learning about the state’s and city’s ...

    Oaxaca Spanish Magic

    2 reviews

    Oaxaca Spanish Magic did the trick for me, quickly catapulting my Spanish to the next level. The teachers really seem to care, not only about helping students learn, but also about making sure they have a memorable stay in Oaxaca. My wonderful teachers, Lili and Jessica, used many creative methods to get us to speak and apply the lessons we ...

    Basilica of Our Lady of Solitude

    2 reviews

    This 17th-century church is one of Oaxaca’s most important religious sites. It houses images of the Virgin of Solitude, a triangular figure you’ll see around the city. Along with the city’s Santo Domingo church, Soledad is one of Oaxaca’s better spots for wedding-watching. The large plazas in front of the church are popular hang-out spots, especially the one lined with ...

    Spend a delightful morning wandering thru the central market place. A vast array of color, and aroma delight your senses. Try the local Chapulines (Crickets, Grasshoppers, and Locusts): A Mexican Delicacy. Plenty of place to grab a snack or meal. Be sure to have plenty of the local mole and hot chocolate. Have some specially grind to bring home with ...

    This town just south of the city of Oaxaca is a place of celebrations, particularly during the run-up to Dia de los Muertos, when locals and visitors pack Xoxocotlan’s cemeteries. Oaxacans gather around relatives’ graves here, drinking mezcal, singing, praying and, occasionally, cooking. The town also is known for its Easter and Lent celebrations, including playful Tuesday festivities called Martes ...

    fundacion en via

    1 review

    Fundacion en via is a microfinance lender to women in the Oaxaca, Mexico area. They run tours to visit the individual borrowers such as weavers, small scale farmers, or small shop operators. Very interesting to get out into the countryside and visit these industrious people. The full cost of the tour goes towards the microfinance loans.

    The zócalo is the city's main plaza and Oaxaca’s beating heart. A Saturday on the zócalo is a spectacle of music, performers and food. Orchestras and dance troupes routinely entertain crowds on one side of the zócalo while political activists speak on the opposite side. Restaurants and cafes line the eastern and western sides of the plaza, the site of ...

    Calle Macedonio Alcalá

    1 review

    This pedestrian-only street is the backbone of Oaxaca’s historic center. Lined with artisan shops, bars, restaurants and galleries, Alcala starts at the cathedral and heads north, past the city’s iconic Santo Domingo church. The street often is packed with wedding revelers and holiday parades, particularly in the evening. Alcala is particularly boisterous during Dia de los Muertos, when costumed Oaxacans ...

    When you buy from the vendors at MARO you are buying directly from members of the women artisan's cooperative of Oaxaca. This means that the folks that weaved your rug or pressed your tin sacred heart are getting the money directly, which makes souvenir shopping a little less guilt-ridden. The MARO complex has a handful of different shops and vendors ...
