Oaxaca de Juárez Travel Guide: 373 reviews and 1,047 photos

I was in Oaxaca in december 2009 for a few days and truely enjoyed my stay there.
Oaxaca is situated south of Mexico city and is the adminstrative center of a province of the same name.
Oaxaca has many educational institutions and therefor has a really good bohemian vibe and a vibrant nightlife scene that is young and rebellious.

The state of Oaxaca is also home to many different indian groups and it has been a center of many ancient civilisations and there are lot´s of remains from these places to be seen in and around Oaxaca.

    Always nice to hear what bicyclists have to say about cities, though too bad the pedestrian mall isn't open to biking as well.

    Fantastic new page. The Bicycle shop with travel agency was probably your kind of place. The Hotel Florida seems to be a good find.
