Capital city of the eponymous state, Oaxaca relies heavily on its colonial charm, its core a maze of tree-shaded alleys flanked by photogenic mansions, government buildings, and old churches.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Exconvento de San Pablo and Zona Arqueologica de Atzompa. Take a break from Oaxaca with a short trip to Zona Arqueologica Zaachila in Zaachila, about 32 minutes away. The adventure continues: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Templo de Santo Domingo de Guzman, view the masterpieces at Voces de Copal, stroll around Parque Juarez El Llano, and trek along Coyote Aventuras.

To find where to stay, ratings, photos, and tourist information, refer to the Oaxaca online trip itinerary maker.
