Overview

A complete guide to the Mexican city offers thorough coverage of the region, from the Pacific Beaches to the Northern Sierras and the Oaxaca Valley, and Including detailed road-trip itineraries.
Let Oaxaca’s wonders welcome you to this sophisticated Spanish colonial capital. Oaxaca is a kaleidoscope of colors and cultures, a place of pale green cantera stone churches, sweeping plazas with brightly clad dancers, and markets redolent with the scent of freshly ground chocolate. Enjoy impressive museums, fine restaurants, and fantastic galleries, then head up into the pine-forested mountains, cloud forests, and colorful deserts, studded with ancient ruins, indigenous villages, and incredible ecotourism opportunities. There’s so much to see and do, but be sure to save some time to soak up the sun on Oaxaca’s 300 km/186 miles of Pacific beaches and bays.
More than 100 photographs and detailed maps round out the package, making this guidebook an indispensable resource. Ándale!
