A gem of a city at the heart of a beautiful region that includes beautiful rolling hills, ancient temple complexes and the bizarre Hierve el Agua, Oaxaca City has earned UNESCO World Heritage status thanks to its gorgeous churches, refined plazas, and attractive streets.
It’s also a place that is boasting a little more grit and edge to it than in years gone by, with an up-and-coming bohemian quarter of the city bringing a real feeling of a city with far more to offer than just a pretty face. A truly rewarding place to get under the skin of, with excellent street markets, bars, artisan shops and mezcalerías to explore, Oaxaca should definitely be near the top of your list of places to visit in Mexico.
Outside of the city, you’ve got the option of adventure activities in the beautiful Sierra Norte, or the surfer-paradise on the beautiful coast, where you can take a moment to slow down in a country that seems to forever move at one hundred miles an hour.
