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 find plenty of places to visit near Oaxaca: Mitla (in San Pablo Villa de Mitla), Tlacolula (Yagul & Capilla Del Senor De Tlacolula) and Zona Arqueologica Zaachila (in Zaachila). There's still lots to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Templo de Santo Domingo de Guzman, hunt for treasures at Mercado Benito Juárez, make a trip to Tule Tree, and see the interesting displays at Museo de las Culturas de Oaxaca.

To see maps and tourist information, you can read our Oaxaca online route planner.

Mexico City to Oaxaca is an approximately 3- hour flight. You can also drive; or take a shuttle. Expect somewhat warmer weather when traveling from Mexico City in February: highs in Oaxaca hover around 35°C, while lows dip to 12°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 14th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
