Let Oaxaca give you a bright and cheerful “Hola!” in the central Zócalo district of the city. Sidle up at a local café and warm up with the city’s unbeatable hot chocolate while you watch vendors hawk their wares and street performers wow the crowds. The hot chocolate might be a religious experience all on its own, but if you need a bigger spiritual push, visit the spectacular Ex Convento de Santo Domingo, just one of many beautiful churches in the city.
Finally, hop on a local tour bus and zoom into the past. Outside of the city, you’ll find several ancient archaeological sites, including the most famous, Monte Alban. Wander through the ancient stone cities and walk in the footsteps of the fascinating Zapotec people.
You can choose road or sky to make it to your Oaxaca accommodation. Fly into the small Xoxocotlán International Airport (OAX). Another option is to take the frequent buses that come in from the nearby large cities.
Once in Oaxaca, your shoes will work just fine in the popular Zócalo district of the city, but you’ll need to hop on a public bus or rent a car with Wotif if you want to explore the ruins outside the city or the surrounding valleys and mountains.
