Oaxaca Recommendations

Posted by tara kirkland on


Last year Bo and I had the privilege of going to Oaxaca, Mexico for vacation.  It was more than just the amazing food, drink, history and culture of Oaxaca that captured our hearts.  We feel in love with the people and wound up finding the most amazing artists and handicrafters and were able to bring back some one of a kind, handmade items to sell in the stores while we there too! 

Here's a link to the online journal we wrote about some of the goods that came back with us.  READ HERE.  

Below are a few photos from our personal album of our trip.

Best cooking class!  Our friend Will in Austin, TX told us about this cooking class, and now we are telling you.  It was awesome.  If you find yourself in the area here's the link to BOOK THIS!

To experience these dances in person you can read about the July festival here GUELAGUETZA - if you're not in town for the actually dates, you can see a mini show with a dinner here at this hotel.  


Bo and I at Monte Albán.  

Special view of a deer/stag head at one of the oldest/widest trees in the world.  This tree lives in a gated church area and has a special festival dedicated to it.  To read more about this - check out this website

One of the many family mezcal operations found in the mountains surrounding the city.  To learn more about how mezcal is made- check out this video on YouTube

A fun little spot we happened upon on our last day in Oaxaca.  Vino & Vinyl

I could go on all day about how much we loved our time in Oaxaca, and if you're thinking of going- here's a few links to some places we loved.


Our three favorite bars (in no specific order) SELVA and  SABINA SABE and LA TIZATERIA

¡Hasta la próxima!
