Exploring Oaxaca!

What I am writing in this lens is about the beautiful state of Oaxaca. As you may probably know, Oaxaca is one of the largest states in Mexico. Also, Oaxaca is in the Southwestern part of Mexico neighboring with Guerrero, Veracruz, Puebla and Chiapas. When writing about Oaxaca is tough for you don't know where to start. Oaxaca, land of the seven moles and the milenarium drink of mezcal is just simply beatiful. It has an exit to the Ocean Pacific and ofcourse their beautiful turkuoise water beaches. In addition, it accomodates many dialects and traditions. While in Oaxaca, you can save some money since everything is cheaper than other states. I wish to talk more about Oaxaca but I will talk more later on. So stay tuned!

Visit Oaxaca!


This lens is about Oaxaca in all the ways you can imagine. Firts of all, I should say that Oaxaca ranks in the 4th place of all the states in Mexico in terms of territorial extension. Being Oaxaca the 4th state in Mexico, let Oaxaca have seven major regions inside the state. Every region has its own culture, gastronomy, dances, and even they speak a different dialect. Oaxaca is just an extraordinary place everyone falls in love with. Here are my reazons why, first of all, the people from Oaxaca know how to treat the tourist. Second, the weather of Oaxaca is just fabulous. It can be hot in the day, and later in the afternoon cools down. Third, in Oaxaca everything is colorful. It is an scape to your problems in your country. Fourthly, you will be surprised by the different gastronomy Oaxaca has. In the morning, how about chicken tamales and cup of chocolate for breakfast. What about lunch? I dare you try the enchiladas with tasajo with a glass of tejate. I know! I am not going to forget about the dinner. How about a tlayuda and a margarita made with mezcal. Having said that, I am going to enjoy a tlayuda while I let you have a look to my site

As I said before, Oaxaca is just one of those amazing states in Mexico. It has beautiful beaches, such as, Uatulco, Puerto Escondido, Puerto Angel, Playa Cangrejo, Zipolite, etc. In addition, it has national parks that you will expect to find a great biodiversity of animals and plants. Some of those parks are Uatulco Park, Lagunas de Chacahua, Benito Juarez Park, San Jose del Progreso between others. I would also encourage you to add this places to your list: Mitla, MonteAlban, Zaachila, Hierve el Agua, and El Tule. You will get to learn a great deal of the Zapotec and Mixtec cultura.

Enjoy a bit of Oaxaca!
