Holidays To Oaxaca

When you're ready to start livin' la vida loca, you'll find there's no better place to do it than sunny Mexico.

Your Oaxaca holiday offers a ton of cultural experiences, from local artwork to all the tamales you can handle. Although some people might imagine sombreros and the desert of all those classic western films, Oaxaca is actually a mountainous capital city that is quite cool—and we're not just talking about the temperature.

Things to Do in Oaxaca

The city of Oaxaca is the capital of the Mexican state of Oaxaca (and, while we're learning something, the correct pronunciation is "Wah-HAH-kah"). The old quarter of the city is anchored by the gorgeous cathedral known to locals as the Templo de Santo Domingo de Guzman. Oaxaca packages in this neighbourhood make it easy to see the stunning decorations inside. Get a feel for the flavour of Mexico in the nearby zócalo, or town square. When you've had your fill of urban sights and sounds, make sure you’ve booked one of Wotif’s Oaxaca car hire deals to explore the countryside, including the beach resorts on the southern coast. After all, you didn't come to Mexico to skip the sun and sand, did you? Enjoy the scenery along the drive, then kick back with a coconut in your hand and coconut oil on your back to work on your tan.

Shopping, Dining & Nightlife

Shopping in Oaxaca typically centres around handmade crafts by local artisans, and the city is a major centre for traditional Mexican handiwork like carving and weaving. The indoor Mercado de Artisanias a few blocks south of the zócalo is a good place to start, while the pedestrian-only Alcala is lined with quaint shops, street musicians and food carts as well. Wotif’s Oaxaca holiday packages will save you plenty of cash to spend on locally made gifts to bring home to all your mates.

If you're not brave enough to get your food fix from a cart, tuck in to the restaurants lining the Alcala. Mexican food is more than tacos and burritos, and one of the major features of Oaxaca holidays is trying all the dishes you can; the best choices are north of the zócalo, between the Museo de las Culturas and the botanical gardens.

After dinner, it's tequila time! Most bars and nightclubs are in the historic district, and on weekends guests can shake their groove thing and party ’til dawn at clubs that feature everything from traditional salsa to modern techno beats. Most bars feature some type of musical entertainment, which makes it easy to get a feel for the place before you even step inside.

What's Next?

When you're ready to dive deep into the Mexican art scene (or a bottle of mescal), you’ll find all the best Oaxaca deals on Wotif. Mountains, beaches and more are all just waiting to be discovered during your next holiday, so start planning today. Then bust out your sliced oranges and worm salt (for the mescal!) and toast to your next getaway.
