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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Templo de Santo Domingo de Guzman and Yagul. Take a break from the city and head to Coyote Aventuras and Pueblos Mancomunados. Change things up with a short trip to Mitla in San Pablo Villa de Mitla (about 1h 5 min away). Next up on the itinerary: explore the ancient world of Monte Alban, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Cathedral of Our Lady of the Assumption, examine the collection at Oaxaca Textile Museum, and admire the striking features of Basilica de la Soledad.

Expect a daytime high around °C in April, and nighttime lows around °C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 13th (Mon) to allow time to travel back home.
