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.
Monte Alban and Oaxaca Textile Museum are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Step out of the city life by going to Coyote Aventuras and Pueblos Mancomunados. Get out of town with these interesting Oaxaca side-trips: Mitla (in San Pablo Villa de Mitla) and Yagul (in Tlacolula). There's still lots to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Templo de Santo Domingo de Guzman, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Santa Maria de la Asuncion, explore the world behind art at Rufino Tamayo Museum of Pre-Hispanic Art, and take in the exciting artwork at Voces de Copal.
