Visiting Oaxaca

Here we introduce the prospective traveler to Oaxaca’s many delights. A trip to Oaxaca is an experience you will never forget! Its people are warm and welcoming, its climate temperate, its food stupendous, its outstanding colonial architecture designated as a UNESCO World Heritage site, its eco-tourism possibilities endless, and its contemporary arts scene flourishing. Outstanding Spanish language schools abound, as do community service opportunities. Its crowning glory is the region’s rich spectrum of folk arts and the memorable “artesanos” who create these beautiful works in their indigenous pueblos surrounding the capital city.
