Over the Thanksgiving break my husband and I went to Oaxaca to attend a close friend’s wedding. The city was as colorful and lively as always – bright paint colors everywhere you look, the sound of bandas playing in the distance, and markets to fill your senses for days. Here are a few photos from our beautiful trip – and make sure to see some of my recommendations that follow.
I especially enjoyed these new-to-me places:
Comida: Los Danzantes, Zandunga, La Biznaga, Pitiona, Café Brújula, Tayu.
Hoteles: Casa Oaxaca, Hotel Parador de Alcalá.
Arte: Galería Arte de Oaxaca
A few tried-and true-favorites of mine are: El Serrano Joyería (Traditional filigree earrings made by owner Antonio Ramos Rojas), Mercado de Abastos (For everything under the sun) and Pan Bamby (It’s been on the same corner since I was a kid!).
Do you have any Oaxaca recommendations? Please share.
