Next, check out the spectacular Arts Center of St. Augustine, housed in the former La Soledad Yarns and Fabrics Factory, which was founded in 1883 and manufactured raw blankets from cotton. The abandoned building has been remodeled into a modern ecological arts center presenting contemporary art and culture exhibitions.

Learn all about this famous cheese, which originated in Oaxaca, has gained international recognition, and is an important ingredient in Mexican gastronomy.

What people are saying about Oaxaca de Juarez

Our guide, Ivan, was very knowledgeable and attentive. We thoroughly enjoyed being invited into a private home and complex to see how cheese is made from beginning to end. The hospitality could not have been more delightful and the cheese was so delicious! The art museum was thought provoking and the paper making so interesting.

We really liked this tour. We got to know some very nice neighborhoods, with some incredible murals and thanks to our guide we were able to understand each of them much better and what they represent. We love touring a part of Oaxaca by bike! It was different and we loved everything we saw.

We loved the session, Edgar our guide with a very good attitude and always looking for the best photo! He shared good tips to eat and enjoy in the city. The activity is highly recommended, we got to know the center and they took great photos of us
