Oaxaca, finally!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Last week, during Day of the Dead festivities, I went to Oaxaca City for the first time.

Oaxaca’s one of those places that’s on every Latin American backpacker and traveling retiree’s checklist. I felt naked as a white person without my token indigenous ware – a blouse, purse, scarf, etc. But then I bought a poncho, and it was all good.

Our final day in Oaxaca, we did a tour – surprisingly with mostly Mexican tourists, not foreigners – outside of the city and visited “Hierve el Agua,” a beautiful spring and set of rock formations overlooking the mountains, roughly an hour and a half outside of the city. Pictures above!

  1. What did you do and see in Oxaca? Give us some details about the people, places, smells, and sounds. I loved it way back in the early ’80s!
