Oaxaca is a real treat in Mexico... with its lively and dignified air and much to do and see... don't miss it... in Oaxaca city, the central markt stalls are a visual and sensory delight ... and there are museums, ruins, art, and lovely walkable streets... try to spend some time here to soak in the ambience...
Oaxaca is in the southwestern part of Mexico. It is known for their excellent chocolate in many different varieties. There is a large coast on the Pacific ocean where there are some amazing inlet beaches.
There is plenty of local shopping and authentic Mexican cafes. It is definitely worth checking out the archeological sites such as Monte Albán if you like history.
