Oaxaca - Custom Package
This Mini Trip will allow you to experience the cultural mix of Oaxaca along with visiting two indigenous villages on day 2. With 300,000 residents, Oaxaca de Juárez boasts a large number of various ethnic groups that each influence the radiant culture. This is not only seen through daily life, but also through festivals, markets and food. Oaxaca is known for its outstanding and unique cuisine. Some special dishes are known all over Mexico: chapulines (roasted grasshoppers), chili rellenos de picadillo (meat-stuffed chillis) and huaraches (a fried massa base with delicious toppings). There's no better way to experience Mexico than in this diverse city!
Today you'll arrive in Oaxaca. After settling in your accommodation, take advantage of your first day by strolling through this colonial city. We highly recommend visiting the Mercado Benito Juárez and Macedonio Alcalá markets. In the evening you can dine in one of the many restaurants and enjoy the local cuisine. Hopefully you'll still have some energy afterward to enjoy some live music, which can easily be found.
