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.
Oaxaca is known for historic sites, museums, and shopping. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: take in the spiritual surroundings of Templo de Santo Domingo de Guzman, take in nature's colorful creations at Ethnobotanical Garden, see the interesting displays at Museo de las Culturas de Oaxaca, and look for gifts at Antiga by VM.

To find maps, traveler tips, reviews, and other tourist information, go to the Oaxaca journey planning site.
