What to do in Oaxaca
The colonial magic of Oaxaca City. The beautiful white-sand beaches and coves of the Oaxacan Coast. The vibrant artisan crafts like the colorful alebrijes. Moles of every color and spiciness level. The ancient Zapotec ruins at Monte Albán. Vibrant and beautiful festivals like the Guelaguetza, the Day of the Dead and the Night of the Radishes. Oh, and don't forget the Mezcal. This is Oaxaca!

Reflections in natural infinity pools

Large arrow left

Beyond Mitla is the beautiful site of Hierve el Agua: natural mineral pools and petrified waterfalls. We took a collectivo taxi up the windy road from Mitla, paid the entrance fee and spent two hours hiking, swimming and taking in the breathtaking scenery. Bring your bathing suit to cool off in the pools or do some sun salutations atop the petrified falls.
