Oaxaca City Walking Tour & Botanical Garden
Welcome to Oaxaca City, a captivating destination where rich history, vibrant culture, and mouthwatering cuisine converge to create an unforgettable experience! Nestled in the heart of Mexico, Oaxaca City is a hidden gem waiting to be explored.
Prepare to be captivated by the enchanting allure of Oaxaca City. Whether you're a history enthusiast, an art lover, a foodie, or simply an adventurer seeking new horizons, Oaxaca has something special in store for you.
TOUR OVERVIEW - Oaxaca City Walking Tour
Embark on an enchanting journey through the heart of Oaxaca, where three captivating elements - culture, crafts, and food - intertwine to create an unforgettable experience. Join us as we wander through the vibrant streets, bustling markets, and iconic landmarks of the city center, revealing the essence of this lively destination. This tour not only provides an excellent introduction to life in Oaxaca but also equips you to navigate the downtown area with ease during your stay.
Our adventure commences in the main square, known as Zocalo, where we'll explore the city's modern foundations, marvel at the grand cathedral steeped in colonial history, and absorb the atmosphere of this central gathering place. Before the markets become too crowded, we'll make our way there, immersing ourselves in the soul of Mexican life. The Benito Juarez food market and the Mercado 20 de Noviembre craft market await our exploration, boasting an array of produce and goods. Amidst the bustling stalls, we'll indulge in typical local delicacies and beverages, learn the art of chocolate-making, and visit a Mezcal superstore. Don't miss the renowned 'pasillo de humo' (corridor of smoke) and gain valuable insights into the market's layout for future shopping endeavors. Be prepared to be amazed by the abundance of textiles, leather goods, shoemakers, ceramics, fried crickets, and tempting food stalls.
A market tour is an essential part of any Mexican adventure, providing invaluable local knowledge, dining recommendations, and opportunities to acquire unique crafts and souvenirs.
After the market's lively atmosphere, you'll find solace in the serene and biodiverse sanctuary of the Ethnobotanical Garden of Oaxaca. Although relatively compact, this gem of a botanical garden houses an impressive variety of cacti and agave, many of which are endemic to the region. Prepare for a visually stunning stroll among representative vegetation of the state, offering fantastic photo opportunities.
Next, we'll take a welcome break at La Cosecha Market, a small and open-air market distinguished by its cleanliness. Unlike the main city markets, this market showcases food from various regions of the state, with different vendors surrounding a communal eating area. It's the perfect spot to recharge before we head to our next destination: the celebrated Santo Domingo church, a true architectural marvel of Oaxaca and Mexico.
Our afternoon concludes at the Textile Museum, an exquisitely restored colonial mansion that houses a captivating collection of textiles from across the state. Oaxaca's textiles are renowned for their beauty and craftsmanship, making this museum a hidden gem that shouldn't be missed.
