I recently visited Oaxaca for Día de los Muertos. It is famous for its extravagant ways of celebrating the holiday—from night to day dancing and partying to crowds of people dressed up in lavish costumes and parading around the town. But aside from the indulgence of the festivities, there is plenty to discover about Oaxaca.
First a little background: Oaxaca is a name from the Nahuatl language; the dialect the Aztec people spoke. It is a sovereign state in the southern region of Mexico, six hours away from Mexico City and surrounded by the other states of Guerrero, Puebla, Veracruz and Chiapas. If you have the chance to visit, here are my top five recommendations for a memorable, nature-filled trip!
