Things to do

Trekking to Archeological Sites in Oaxaca

The Sierra Norte Range, Oaxaca - With one of Mexico’s most varied landscapes—plus incredible biodiversity—it’s no surprise Oaxaca is such a must see. Many start out at the state’s rugged, unspoiled beaches—and some of the strongest waves in the Pacific. Tropical country the Isthmus of Tehuantepec offers splendid lagoons and amazing wildlife. In the area surrounding Oaxaca City, you can hike an afternoon—or a week—amid soaring, sun-drenched peaks and cool, shady valleys, to Monte Alban and other cities of the Mixtec and Zapotec gods. And if you’re ready for some adrenaline, mountain bike paths offer trails for everyone from novices to hardcores.
