Exploring The Culture In Oaxaca

Oaxaca, México

Mitla Handicrafts Market

Last year during my trip to Oaxaca we got to visit a handicrafts market just outside the city in a town called Mitla.

It’s an amazingly colorful place! Here you can find beautiful handmade clothes, uniquely crafted items made by native people from Oaxaca at a fair price. If you're a tourist this is the ideal place for you to buy gifts for your friends and family.

Oaxaca has its own traditional drink called Mezcal. It's a distilled alcoholic beverage made from agave. Agaves are found in various parts of Mexico.

We went to a Mezcalería called "Casa Espadín" which is located on a highway 10 minutes away from Mitla and is where they produce this drink and we got to learn about the process of making Mezcal. After a compelling lesson, we got to taste the mezcal which was such an amazing experience.

On my trip, I met people from all over the world and I was surprised by how much they enjoyed the culture in Mexico and in Oaxaca. Visit Mexico!
