Adjoining the temple in the beautiful old monastery buildings is the Museum of Oaxacan Culture, a great place to learn about the region’s pre-Hispanic roots and the impact of Spanish colonization. A little further north is the historic Alvaro Carrillo Theater, with its intriguing green façade.

Take a guided tour of the mountain-top ruins of Monte Alban in the outskirts of the city. It is among the state’s highlights, with its 2,500-year-old Zapotec city. Note that the weather is fairly cool in the mountains of the state, while it is tropical in the lower climbs.

For a change of scenery, make your way to the resort town of Huatulco on the Pacific Coast. Work on your tan on Huatulco Beach, Playa Zaachila and San Augustin Beach among others and explore the scenic coastal terrain in the vast Huatulco National Park. Learn about the indigenous cultures at the Copalita Eco-Archeological Park, which incorporates ruins among the wetlands and undulating forests.
