Mexico Things to Do: 626 reviews and 826 photos
If you have just a short time to spend in Mexico, spend it in Oaxaca. The city of Oaxaca is a gem, and there are wonderful pueblos in every direction. Real indian culture still exists in Oaxaca and its environs.
Oaxaca is in the south of mexico where indian culture still lives. it is rich with ancient ruins (mostly mixteca) and kick ass colonial buildings. The pueblos surrounding the city are wonderful and relatively untouched by McDonalds and the like. YOu have to see it to believe it. Try the mole and the mescal.
Directions: Oaxaca is about five hours southeast of Mexico city. it borders Chiapas (also worth the trip) and has wonderful pacific ocean coast.
