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.

There's lots more to do: delve into the distant past at Monte Alban, get a taste of the local shopping with Mercado Benito Juárez, admire the striking features of Basilica de la Soledad, and let your taste buds guide you at a local gastronomic tour.
