Oaxaca is constantly changing. It's colorful, bustling, vibrating with life from early morning until late at night. It's also reserved, formal, and mysterious--hiding its most intriguing features behind high stone walls, weathered doors, and the gracious manners of its citizens.
The city of Oaxaca is a quaint colonial town, where tradition and technology go hand in hand to produce an unforgettable experience for travelers. The capital of Oaxaca, it’s a modern city whose ancient cultures still exude life.
5,000 feet above sea level in a valley between the mountains of Sierra Madre to the east and the Sierra Oaxaquena in the west, the city enjoys almost a perfect climate. This makes it an ideal place for lounging in the sand, enjoying Oaxaca’s cousine, or just taking in many of the cute sidewalk cafes watching the world go by.
