Capital city of a state with valleys concealing an extraordinary cultural wealth (over 90 Indian dialects are still in use), Oaxaca will charm you with its Indian identity as well as with its superb colonial heritage. Start with Santo Domingo's church, the Regional Museum and the streets around the impressive cathedral. The bougainvillea, acacias and jacarandas make you want to stroll in the ancient cobbled street, lined with art galleries and brightly-coloured residences. Roughly 12 miles away from Oaxaca, you should visit the archaeological sites of Monte Alban and Mitla, without forgetting to go to the Sunday Indian market of Tlacolula.
