Learn about history in Monte Albán
This impressive city, founded by the Zapotec civilization around 500 BC, was an important socio-political and economic center in Mesoamerica. Declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987, it is the most visited archaeological site in Oaxaca.
A natural phenomenon: Hierve el Agua
Near to the Mitla Archaeological Site, you can find this set of petrified waterfalls, formed thousands of years ago.
Go to the traditional Guelaguetza
Folk groups from different places around the state reunite at this celebration, which takes place annually in July. Besides music and dance, this is the perfect opportunity to find a wide variety of Oaxacan dishes. Here we recommend you to try tamales oaxaqueños or tlayudas, while you drink tejate (a non-alcoholic maize and cacao beverage) or mezcal (a distilled alcoholic beverage made from the agave plant).
If you like alebrijes and want to take some miniatures as souvenirs, we invite you to learn more about our baggage policies. Select the fare that best suits your needs and transport up to 50 kg (110 lb) of checked baggage.
