When you visit Oaxaca, you will find a city brimming with activity. On a typical Sunday evening, the locals are out with their families, street vendors are out selling their wares, and tourists walk around dazed from all the sights, sounds and aromas. Most of the activity is centered around this old section of the city. How old? Well, the cathedral was first constructed in 1535 and its current state was finalized in 1733. You will also find the zocalo (main plaza) right next to the cathedral along with various museums just a few blocks away. There is plenty to do around here. You can admire the beautiful architecture while sipping a coffee a few steps away. How about visiting the dozens of artisans selling their unique and colorful creations? Or just stroll into one of the many museums highlighting the often turbulent history of this region. Me? I just wandered around soaking it all in, snapping a couple of photos along the way, and longing to return one day. I really enjoyed this city and it’s now on my must return list. Oh, and I ate plenty of shaved ice treats. Oaxaca is known for their ice cream. My favorite: A shaved ice cup of lemon/lime kiwi. Yummm. I had more than one.
