Gay Oaxaca Oaxaca City City Guide City Guides > Mexico > Gay Oaxaca Oaxaca City Casey SiemaskoOaxaca City has long drawn artists and creative minds to her bright, cobbled streets, and just one visit to the enchanting colonial city is all it takes to see why. Located in South-western Mexico, Oaxaca oozes with old-world charm, pre-Colombian ruins, and fascinating indigenous traditions. What’s more, Oaxaca is considered to be the culinary capital of Mexico, characterised by flavours like sweet and spicy chocolate, decadent moles, and smooth (but potent) mezcal. Wondering what to do in Oaxaca? The city is safe and best explored at leisure on foot, with ample time for stops at quaint coffee shops and mezcal bars along the way. The most magical hours are early morning when most locals have yet to arise, and after dusk when the Zocalo (Central Plaza) comes alive with lights, sounds and colours. For your definitive Oaxaca gay guide, you’ve come to the right place. Feel like getting away? Take a trip planned just for you, and let us do all the work.
