  • The bookstore has many titles of interest to expats. And they promote new Mexican authors who are just recently translated. The bookstore is a big find for me.  more »
  • A library where 80% of the books are in English, very interesting above all of the culture and history of the place, as well as beautiful handicrafts. French background music, friendly staff, worth the turn if you have free time ;)

Where to stay in Oaxaca

Oaxaca's size and diversity make it an especially good place to find budget-friendly accommodations, in particular youth hostels and family-run "posadas." These affordable options, along with mid-range and boutique hotels, line the cozy streets of Oaxaca's historic center, probably the most convenient area in the city. You can also find a decent range of options just north of the center, in the neighborhoods of La Paz and Guelaguetza.
