Oaxaca has a rich and very interesting history. Much of México’s early history was centered in or around the Oaxaca valley.
The difficulty of driving around an unfamiliar city makes guided tours to the historic, cultural and archaeological sites in the Oaxaca area a sensible alternative to renting a car and trying to figure out your own routes and schedules to fit everything in.
The Oaxaca valley is a treasure trove of crafts villages and archeological sites. Guided tours are a great way to get to see multiple sites in one trip. There are also many tour companies in Oaxaca that will rent you a car or van with an English speaking driver, for personalized tours.
The beaches of Oaxaca offer a pleasant and relaxing experience. If you are planning a trip to Huatulco, it is a good idea the have your itinerary planned and reservations made in advance.
