Declared a Unesco World Heritage Site, Oaxaca is a charming and beautiful example of a Mexican colonial city. Incredibly diverse, Oaxaca has been occupied since 1000 BC by the Zapotecs, the Mixtecs, the Aztecs, and of course the Spanish. This has lead to a city rich in cultural traditions and varied cuisine.

The Spanish designed the city around a central square, or Zócalo, which is one of the most attractive squares in Mexico. Surrounded by grand government buildings and bustling cafes and restaurants, the Zócalo is the central hub in Oaxaca. Leading away from the Zócalo, the city extends outwards in a grid formation. The colonial architecture that lines the streets in Oaxaca is of a unique style, the sturdy green stone structures built to survive the many earthquakes which have beset the city.

Travellers take flights to Oaxaca to experience its rich cultural history by visiting the famous festivals and celebrations that take place in the city year-round. The largest of all the festivals is the internationally renowned Guelaguetza – a celebration of dance, music and Oaxacan traditions.
