The Essential
Highly recommended
Before heading for the emblematic archaeological sites in the central valleys, make sure you stop off in Oaxaca, a dynamic and highly appealing regional capital and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Spanish built splendid colonial houses here and nearly 30 churches which are real Baroque masterpieces adorned with the famous cantera verde, a local stone with a subtle greyish-green colour. An exciting place to visit.

Mexico: Death is delicious in Oaxaca

The Day of the Dead is one of Mexico’s most important holidays. In a country where food is an integral part of culture, the dearly departed are honoured most deliciously, especially in Oaxaca, where El Día de los Muertos is also the Day of Great Feasts.
