Capital city of the eponymous state, Oaxaca relies heavily on its colonial charm, its core a maze of tree-shaded alleys flanked by photogenic mansions, government buildings, and old churches.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Templo de Santo Domingo de Guzman and Yagul. Appreciate the collections at Museo de las Culturas de Oaxaca and Oaxaca Textile Museum. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Oaxaca: Capulalpam de Mendez (in Ixtlan), Paraiso de Adan (in San Agustin Etla) and Mitla (in San Pablo Villa de Mitla). There's still lots to do: delve into the distant past at Monte Alban, take an in-depth tour of Rufino Tamayo Museum of Pre-Hispanic Art, take in the spiritual surroundings of Basilica de la Soledad, and examine the collection at Museo de Filatelia de Oaxaca, A.C..

For where to stay and other tourist information, read our Oaxaca planning app.

July in Oaxaca sees daily highs of 85°F and lows of 58°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 4th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
