Where in Mexico can you experience some of the best food in the country?

Where they are famous for their chocolate, host a day of the dead festival, and have many street markets? Where you can find artisans, the massive ruins of Monte Alban, nearby villages and the Sierra Norte?

Welcome to Oaxaca City in the state of Oaxaca Mexico!

While visiting Oaxaca, I booked an apartment for less than $300 / month. While there, I ate some of the finest cuisine for usually less than $10 for the entire meal. I saw how they make mezcal locally using agave, penas, and water. There I worked from my apartment, cafes, and the local coworking space, Selena.

In Oaxaca you can experience beautiful sunsets, see the culture booming around you and experience the best parts of Mexico while working full-time and traveling on a budget. If you are looking for a great first stop to experience Mexico as a digital nomad, Oaxaca city should be at the top of your list!

And if you want to have a one of a kind local experience, visit Oaxaca City during its internationally renown Dias de las Muertes festival.

Where they celebrate the dead through local traditional celebrations. I will be coming back for this festival and I suggest that you do the same.

I hope you found this helpful. Be sure to like and share, and I look forward to seeing you next time!
