  • The visit to the area of Mitla to the home seems just as travel to Oaxaca but is really beautiful and interesting, don't miss down the tombs to appreciate the skill of the builders of that time, also to explore the people and enjoy wonderful hands of the craftsman in the looms. visit obliged.

  • This isn't as good as Monte Alban, but it's cool to see anyway. Nice place to take photos. A quick stop on the way to Hierve el Agua.
