  • An interesting place to visit in Oaxaca since they have many varieties of vegetation in the region. Unfortunately you can only see it with guided tour which is annoying if you are a large group. The most fun is the section of the cactus where photos are taken.

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.
