Oaxaca City

Oaxaca is a feast for the all the senses from the moment you arrive – colourful houses compete for attention with mounds of vibrant spices, their exotic aromas filling the air. Bustling markets and lively plazas create a convivial buzz while rich culinary traditions bring taste buds alive. Outside the city, Zapotec ruins and Indian villages offer an insight into indigenous cultural heritage.

Stroll the cobbled streets and slip into the grand Santo Domingo church and the cathedral for a spot of meditative tranquillity before heading back into the pulsating city. While away an hour or so in a pavement cafe, watching life unfold in the plaza while sampling the exquisite dishes that have made Oaxaca such a famed culinary destination. Further afield, discover the region’s Zapotec history with a trip to the fascinating ruins of Monte Alban.
