 Oaxaca has its very own and distinctive personality, which sets it apart from other places in Mexico. The enduring presence of its Indian past and the green hewn stone churches and mansions from the Spanish colonial period now coexist harmoniously with the latest artistic and architectonic manifestations without overshadowing each other. This is the reason why, in 1987, the UNESCO designated Oaxaca´s historic center as a world heritage site.
 Perhaps the best way to explore the city of Oaxaca is to stroll through its streets and picturesque squares, admiring its truly magnificent architecture and immersing you in the city's serene atmosphere. The cathedral, a few steps away from the Zócalo (main square), is one of the city's most important landmarks and especially noted for its solid construction. Another church you must certainly visit is the Basilica de la Soledad, not only because it is a true jewel of the Mexican baroque, but also because it houses the Virgin of La Soledad, patron of Oaxaca.

Another way to capture the spirit of Oaxaca is to visit the area known as Andador Macedonia Alcalá, a narrow street closed off to traffic, paved in green stone.Daily life in Oaxaca is inconceivable without some kind of celebration - whether religious or otherwise. In any case, there is no question that the most spectacular event of the year is the Guelaguetza, the Oaxacans most important celebration and one of the famous on a nationwide level

 Daily life in Oaxaca is inconceivable without some kind of celebration - whether religious or otherwise. In any case, there is no question that the most spectacular event of the year is the Guelaguetza, the Oaxacans most important celebration and one of the famous on a nationwide level. The Guelaguetza, whose name in Zapotec means "gift" or "mutual offering", has been held since Pre-Hispanic times but acquired widespread popularity of 1932, when it merged with the Lunes del Cerro or Monday on the Hill festivities. According to historians, this feast harks back to the pre-Hispanic rituals devoted to Centéotl, the goddess of corn. Today it is celebrated on the two Mondays following the 16th of July, the feast of the Virgin of El Carmen. Here you can find our offer of hotels in Oaxaca.

 La Bahía de Huatulco is one of the most recent tourist centres on the Mexican Pacific coast. Along 14 kilometers of seashore, the cliffs of the southern Sierra Madre enclose nine bays and numerous half-moon shaped beaches, most of which are small and sheltered, just perfect for your summer vacation.
 Huatulco´s main attraction are its bays San Agustín, Chacacual, Calaluta, El Organo, El Maguey, Santa Cruz, Chahué, Tangolunda and Conejos. All of them have magnificent beaches, and the ocean is extraordinarily clear and teeming with marine life thanks to the absence of pollution, noise and crowds. This is what gives the place its charm, plus the fresh air carries the aroma of tropical vegetation. Some of these bays are only accessible by boats owned by independent companies with headquarters in Santa Cruz or by the hotels themselves. You can also have the option of renting a boat to the bay of your choice. You can make arrangements to be picked up later or reserve the boat for the entire day.
