Oaxaca City is a beautifully kept regional capital of the state of the same name. Downtown Oaxaca has pedestrian only streets that are fun to stroll along taking in the colonial architecture and chic shops. There are many museums, churches, restaurants and hotels centrally located in the downtown area. The central park, or zocalo, is a nice spot to people watch, buy souvenirs or eat a local snack. Located just outside the city is the archaeological site of Monte Alban from the Zapotec people who once inhabited the area. The town of Teotitlan del Valle, a short bus trip from Oaxaca, makes a nice day trip to see quiet village life and the town’s famous tapestry weavings.
