Between its mountains and its beaches, the state of Oaxaca in southern Mexico is a treasure trove of beautiful views and outdoor activities. But thanks to its capital and some of its lesser-known villages, it’s also an art and food destination.

The country is deeply steeped in traditions stemming from the country’s 16 indigenous groups as well as its Spanish colonial past. It’s these traditions that make it a draw for the nearly 650,000 tourists that visit the state each year, according to Adair César of the state’s tourism board.

For those who want to explore a Mexico that offers the best of many worlds and that’s outside of typical hot spots, Oaxaca has a little bit for just about everyone.

Here’s our guide of the best things to do in various places in Oaxaca state:

Oaxaca City

Start in Oaxaca City, a UNESCO World Heritage site and a cultural hub. The city’s colonial architecture, colorful buildings and cobblestone streets yield picturesque views that make it unforgettable.

Mexico – Historic Centre of Oaxaca and Archaeological Site of Monte Albán

When friends visiting Mexico for the first time ask me where to begin, I tell them: Go to Oaxaca, one of the most scenically beautiful, historically interesting and simply enjoyable cities south of the border. Go now. It’s never seemed more important than it does at this current moment, to enjoy, to admire and to learn about our nation’s near neighbor to the south.

I can’t think of a better way to counter the “alternative facts” we have been hearing in the political discourse about Mexico and Mexicans than to go there and see for ourselves, to experience firsthand the country’s physical beauty, its rich traditions, the hospitality and kindness of its people. And I can’t think of a better place to start than Oaxaca, an easy trip of less than an hour from Mexico City.

Where to go, where to eat, and where to stay.

The Mexican state of Oaxaca is known for its arts, food, and mezcal. But this summer, it made the news after a serious and devastating earthquake, stories about which have kept some travelers away, negatively affecting the region’s tourist industry. What many people don’t know, though, is that the capital city was largely unaffected. So now might actually be the perfect time to visit, especially because supporting the local economy will really count. Considered a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Oaxaca City is filled with culture and great things to eat and drink, so it definitely won’t disappoint those who venture there.

Millennials are enamoured by the United Nations. Consider the young undergrad, Antonio Soriano who is the UNESCO Delegate for the Harvard National Model United Nations of 2017. He writes:

“Dear Delegates,

Welcome to Harvard National Model United Nations 2017! My name is Antonio Soriano, and it is my honour to serve as the Director of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO)…UNESCO aims to establish peace that is built not only on political and economic agreements but also on humanity’s morality and the concept of intellectual solidarity…Don’t hesitate to email me with any question.”

So here is my question for Soriano, “How well does UNESCO do its job?” The answer is not very well.
