Best Luxury Hotels In Oaxaca

Both a state and a city, Oaxaca is in the southwest of the country and a great choice if you want to explore a more authentic side of Mexico than you may in the more touristy resorts. The cuisine here is quite unique (be sure to try the street food and plenty of mezcal) and as a former Aztec region, there are plenty of fascinating sites to tour. It’s historic, sometimes a little hectic (especially in the city centre), but always bright and colourful. But generally, life here is leisurely, laid back and casual, so expect to adapt accordingly.
