Oaxaca, one of the most popular destinations in Semana Santa

Oaxaca was named the No. 1 city in the world, according to T+L readers in 2023.

Boasting an endless supply of mezcal and mole, Oaxaca de Juárez is undoubtedly one of the ultimate food and drink destinations on the planet. So, it’s perhaps no surprise that in Travel + Leisure’s 2023 World’s Best Awards, it was named the best city in the world. (The city is commonly referred to as Oaxaca, but shouldn’t be confused with the eponymous state it’s a part of.)

This dynamic city in southwestern Mexico is home to vibrant culture, beautiful weather, and some of the country’s most iconic architecture. “The most remarkable thing about Oaxaca is the deep presence of this pre-Colombian culture in all aspects of contemporary life — the mingling and mixing of Indigenous, Spanish, and contemporary Mexican influences are unique and unforgettable,” said Zachary Rabinor, a member of T+L’s A-List of travel advisors and the CEO of Journey Mexico.

You could spend several weeks here and not even scratch the surface — if you weren’t planning correctly, that is. “Oaxaca is a quintessential and magical destination that combines culture, nature, and adventure, with a year-round spring-like climate due to its idyllic location nestled into a fertile valley of the Sierra Madre Sur Mountains,” Rabinor said. 

“It offers a charming, pedestrian-friendly UNESCO World Heritage Site City Center with impressive architecture, museums, markets, restaurants, shopping, and nightlife, while the surrounding valleys harbor incredible Indigenous villages that conserve century-old artisan traditions, dress, language, culture, and lifestyles,” he concluded.
