Other trip details:

Early history:

 

"Between approximately 1500 and 500 B.C., the Zapotecan city of San José Mogote in what is now the state of Oaxaca was the largest and most important settlement in the region. Historians estimate that during the pre-colonial period, Oaxaca was home to 16 separate cultures, each with its own language, customs and traditions. However the Zapotecas and Mixtecas constituted the largest and most sophisticated societies with villages and farmlands located throughout the region.

Did you know? The Zapoteca were skilled in astronomy and excavation, and leveled the top of a local mountain around 450 B.C. and created the ceremonial center now called Monte Albán. One of the most densely populated cities in Mesoamerica, Monte Albán is estimated to have had 18,000 Zapotecan residents at its peak." (history.com)


Other cool things to do: 

OAXACA'S ETHNOBOTANICAL GARDEN is a botanical garden in Mexico that sits on 2.32 acres of the former monastic grounds of the Church of Santo Domingo. Officially opened in 1998, this ethnobotanic garden is an example of Oaxaca’s unparalleled biodiversity, particularly its cacti variations. More information.
