Walking the streets of Oaxaca de Juárez, Mexico (also known as Oaxaca City) presents many photo opportunities due to colorful homes, beautiful architecture, artists, and lively people.
Oaxaca de Juárez is well known for its food and mezcal. However, this town is also famous for its rich craft heritage, from embroidered fabrics to earthenware.
The town also displays many murals by talented artists. The following are just a small sample of the beautiful art that can be found throughout Oaxaca City.
One thing has become very clear after eight months of touring through Mexico. The people of Mexico love to celebrate and they go all out. A great example is the wedding parades that occur regularly in Oaxaca.
These celebrations are matched by the festive colors and beautiful architecture of the homes and storefronts of the city.
Sophisticated, lively, gritty, and heartwarming. There is no shortage of photo opportunities in this town.
It’s been real Oaxaca, but I’ve got to go. I hear the pacific coast calling out to me.
