Our Honeymoon to the area of Oaxaca Dec 11, 2012
If you love history, Oaxaca is a great place to visit. We spent a week here for our delayed honeymoon. We only bought plane tickets and figured we could take care of the rest when we arrived. After chatting with a few people, we were pointed to a beautiful property that rented by the week. The only drawback was that they didn't have a queen bed, just two twins.
Oaxaca has great night life and a beautiful center that remains largely intact with centuries old buildings. It all encircles the Zocalo (town center) which is bustling during the day and night.
Near by is the archaeological site of Monte Alban which is the ancient capital of the Zapotecs. It was a blast exploring the ruins and soaking in the ancient area.
