The ruins of Mitla are almost hidden at the top of the small town. Mitla has developed into a sprawl of roads, each with their own charm as people sell and brew Mezcal and other wares from colourful and muralled shop fronts. Most people visiting...More

This archeological site of religious ruins of Zapotecs is the 2nd most important find in Oaxaca after city of Monte Alban. You can see interesting mosaics of geometrical designs on walls & facades.

Mirla is several things. Ancient Mixtec archaeology, plus a pretty cool little town. The market is amazing, go hungry! Make a day of it. In Oaxaca City, find a couple of friends and get your own taxi for the whole day. You can see El...More
