Description

To explore Oaxaca is to travel through centuries of cultural tradition. We are going to visit a historical region of Mexico.  Today is an essential reference for Mesoamerican history, gastronomy, handicrafts and tourism.

Large pre-Hispanic cities arose from the valleys of Oaxaca that coexisted with the Mayans and Teotihuacans. Monte Albán and Mitla, capitals of the Zapotec civilization, are today impressive archaeological sites that are worth visiting and having the experience of appreciating their unique architectural designs.

You will know the fruits of the mixture of multiple indigenous ethnic groups that currently subsist in Oaxaca, coupled with the miscegenation of the colonial era and the heritage of the Afro-descendants who settled there. Gastronomic elements such as tamales, mole and mezcal have their roots  in this region.

We will also walk through the streets of its colonial city, we will pass through its impressive beaches on the Pacific Ocean and we will visit the most representative examples of art inspired by the indigenous essence of Oaxaca.

We believe knowledge must be FREE, available to everyone. Just get your Free pass and ENJOY!
