  • Taking advantage of that I like to get up early, I decided to go running and the first site that I thought was to climb the Hill of the Fort. It is a very uncomplicated rise that can be perfectly, either by road or by stairs. Incredible views of all Oaxaca and its surroundings are taken from above. To my that I love the views seemed like a great place to go take a walk. Tip: Preferably id in the morning or in the afternoon to avoid the midday heat. In addition, at this time the photo is much more beautiful.

  • Good location within the city for the physical activity, above all morning; climb and walk the dirt road feel while peace and quiet for being in contact with nature and away from the noise. You can start climbing the "stairs of the Fortin", accessible by street Crespo, and then continue until you almost reach the Observatory to deviate and take the dirt road.

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.
