Oaxaca

Trip Planner Mexico  /  Southern Mexico  /  Oaxaca
(4.4/5 based on 19,000+ reviews for top 30 attractions)
Things to do: sightseeing, nature, historic sites
Despite its favorable coastal location on the Pacific, Oaxaca remains one of Mexico's least-developed states, visited mostly by die-hard fans of traditional cuisine and Mexico's native artistic traditions. Warm year-round weather ensures a pleasant Oaxaca holiday no matter when you visit, with the area's varied landscapes providing plenty of chances for outdoor activities. Dense forests burst with abundant plant and animal life, while rugged mountains hide a slew of sleepy indigenous communities untouched by modern developments and commercial tourism. Allowing visitors to discover the less-traveled side of Mexico, comprehensive tours of Oaxaca often include visits to secluded beaches and history-soaked sites from the pre-Hispanic period. Take a peek at our international travel planner: Oaxaca and its charms laid bare and easily scheduled.
