Travel Blogs from Oaxaca

Mole, Mole, Mole...and Mezcals

A travel blog entry by luckshmy.subash


We were heading to our next destination Oaxaca the home of Mole & Mezcals. Subash had learnt his lesson from the last overnight bus so he got a more expensive bus with more room to sleep. We watched X-men first class before heading to sleep. I thought the last bus ride was eventful but this would take the cake. The bus was constantly being …

Mexico - Oaxaca

A travel blog entry by leanne.baker


What LP says: Welcome to one of Mexico’s most beautiful and vibrant cities. A colonial city with a lovely, tree-shaded central square, El Zócalo, Oaxaca is the heart of a region whose highly creative populace produces the country’s finest range of crafts and some of its most exciting contemporary art. Artists and artisans alike are …

Na een fantastisch weekend in Mexico City, "DF" in de Mexicaanse volksmond, trekken we op maandag 23 oktober zuidwaarts. Oaxaca is de volgende bestemming. Een mooi koloniaal bergstadje dat bulkt van de kunstgalerijtjes en erg in trek is bij de Mexicanen. Het wordt getypeerd door een bruisend marktleven dat her en der over de stad …

A letter to Oaxaca

A travel blog entry by houston

Dear Oaxaca,

Your strets are cramped.
Your museums are tiny.
Your people, while not openly rude, are definitely not as friendly as Mexico City or Puerto Escondido.
You try to rip off tourists, and you dont do it well enough to not get called out.
Your Mole Negro, which is supposed to be world famous, was cold and bland, ive …

Le jour où j'ai mangé des sauterelles...

A travel blog entry by ariane_atw


J'en rêvais depuis que je me suis renseignée sur le Mexique en préparant mon voyage. Goûter des insectes! Alors quand j'ai vu passer une petite dame qui vendait des chapulines (sauterelles) au marché de Oaxaca, j'ai sauté sur l'occcasion.
Elles sont grillées avec de l'ail et du citron, le gout est assez fort, Ça croque; c'est pas mauvais mais …

    Paulina Youth Hostel... My home away from home.

    I have stayed at Paulina Youth Hostel in Oaxaca, Mexico at least 5 times, I'm sure. It was the first place I stayed there and the best. It is large and incredibly clean for a hostel. It's a great place to meet people in the dorms but, If you want to go the personal route, I don't find the private rooms to be very expensive at all. The service is excellent. The staff are there 24/7 and you can check in in the middle of the night. It's close to the zocalo and some really great restaurants like Alex's. But the free breakfast is an insanely good spread. There's also a waterfall and a little garden where hippie travellers are usually picnicing and doing yoga. And that comforts me.
