Tourist destinations in Oaxaca
Planning a trip to Oaxaca is akin to giving flight to your imagination, regardless of the time you have available. The state is comprised of some of the most fascinating regions in the country. You’ll find enrapturing expressions of an era gone by; Oaxaca preserves its ancestral traditions, it’s the state of el tequio (cooperative labor), and is where the sound of the Sandunga continues to be rejoiced. Here in the 21st century the more than 15 existing languages bear witness to the past as existing today, and to the cultural mosaic which both distinguishes and provides a sense of pride for all Oaxacans.
Oaxaca overflows with natural beauty…found in the mountains of Ixtlán and on the coast, in the bays of Chacahua and on the beaches of Mazunte, sanctuary of the sea tortoise.
Monte Albán and Mitla, as well as the historic temples and monuments of the Dominican route, are but the most visible manifestations of the invaluable asset, our land and birthrite, providing us with our own identity in the broader world.
But to a large degree it’s also a heritage which we have in common with all of mankind, a historical-cultural richness accessible to you. In addition, beach destinations in and of themselves garnering the highest of tourist appeal combine with service of international quality. Huatulco, Puerto Escondido and Puerto Angel await you and your family, as do our cities, villages and diverse regions, each with its own appeal. Oaxaca is a place to visit, a state to admire and explore, and most importantly a region of our country ready for you to enjoy, providing memories to cherish.
