about oaxaca

Food/ Gastronomìa

Without a doubt, one of the greatest reasons to visit Oaxaca is the food! Wonderful pairings are created with traditional drinks and the cuisine. The unique combination of flavors in Oaxacan cuisine are comprised of cheeses, seven types of mole, stewed meats, tlayudas, memelas, traditional soups, sweet breads, champillones (grasshoppers), tamales, and fruit ice creams.

Las artesanìas/ artisan crafts

In Oaxaca, indigenous artistic expression is a vibrant part of life in the pueblos that surround the main city. Many of the communities in these pueblos still practice traditional ancient art forms that have been passed down over thousands of years. Folk art such as alebrijes, textiles, ceramics, and beautiful embroidery can all be found in the Central Valleys.

Los Mercados/ the markets

In Oaxaca’s markets an explosion of colors, flavors, and aromas come together. As you wander through the markets you can find traditional foods, (mole, cheeses, coffees, atole, tamales) fresh fruits and vegetables, herbs and spices, handicrafts, textiles and so much more!

Las Ruinas/ the ruins

There are around 4000 known archaeological sites in Oaxaca. Monte Álban and Mitla are two of the most important settlements for the Mixtecs and the Zapotecs and forged the beginnings of present day Oaxaca.

el mezcal/ the mezcal

Distilled from the Maguey (agave) plant, Mezcal plays an important role in Oaxacan identity. The art of Mezcal can be experienced in various mezcalerias and palenques where you can taste the aromas and flavors which tell its story. A visit to Oaxaca is not complete without tasting a traditional mezcal created by experts.

Los Museos/ Museums & Galleries

Oaxaca has a rich history and culture of artistic expression. The city center has several museums and galleries that host exhibitions and works from regional, national, and international artists.
