Around the City
The city of Oaxaca snakes through connecting valleys in the approximate center of the State of Oaxaca in southern Mexico. The elevation of 5110 feet (1778 meters) makes for a temperate climate with average daytime temperatures from 75-85 F at this time of year. The sun shines all day, every day!
The Zócalo is a 10 minute walk from our apartment. A variety of events…orchestra music, congo drums, mimes, vendors, fireworks…takes place all at the same time!
