Mercado 20 de Noviembre
The Mercado 20 de Noviembre was one of Oaxaca’s large markets (in addition to the Benito Juarez Market). It was situated inside a big building close to the Benito Juarez Market.
The market was a maze of narrow aisles lined with small stalls selling a variety of colourful handicrafts, jewelry, bags, shoes, fresh produce, flowers, spices, and more. There were also food vendors serving inexpensive and authentic Mexican foods. There were vendors on the streets surrounding the market selling produce and handmade crafts as well.
It was a busy and overwhelming place and the market was packed with people. It was an interesting local market to explore and wander around to get experience the local life and culture.

Zona Arqueológica de Monte Albán
Amazing , awe-inspiring, photogenic ruins. The museum is small and cute. I think you learn more if you have a tour guide because mine gave us insider details. The ruins themselves, which you’re allowed to climb, are a really good leg day workout. Be prepared for a hike; sneakers/tennis shoes, water, a hat, sunblock. And be careful! The steps are really big in terms of height. I’m very clumsy and needed help going back down.

Museum of Cultures of Oaxaca, Santo Domingo
The Museo de las Culturas was located right beside the Santo Domingo de Guzman Cathedral via its own entrance.
The museum was large featuring many exhibits which were situated in various rooms inside this former monastery. The museum is focused on the Oaxaca culture, art and history. There were lots of ancient artifacts recovered from the surrounding areas which were very interesting to see.
Unfortunately, the information placards in the museum were in Spanish-only so I wasn’t able to understand a lot of it, but I still enjoyed exploring this museum, wandering into the various rooms, and checking out the exhibits.
There were open-air windows throughout the museum with fantastic views overlooking the streets as well as the incredible botanical gardens next door with so many amazing cacti and succulents. I didn’t have time to visit the gardens, as they had a separate entrance fee and only scheduled tours at specific times during the day, which did not work with my schedule.
The entrance fee was 70 pesos which was very reasonable. I spent around 2 to 2.5 hours exploring here. It was a great place to spend a leisurely afternoon and cool off from the heat outside. You are not allowed to take backpacks inside the museum, so I had to leave mine in a cubby behind the front desk. I just took my phone, camera, and wallet with me and felt safe leaving my backpack there. Everything worked out fine.

Benito Juárez National Park
The Benito Juárez National Park is in the Valles Centrales Region of Oaxaca, Mexico, and includes parts of the municipalities of San Felipe Tejalapam and San Andres Huayapan. The southern boundary of the park is about 5 kilometers north of the City .
Great place to go for a walk, a run or just chill on one of the park benches. It gets very dark during the night due to the poor lighting but there you can find a woman on the side of Av. Juárez that sells the best elotes and esquites of all centro. Really tasty!!
Small, bustling public square surrounded by restaurants, vendors & historic buildings.
Paseo Juárez “El Llano”
Beautiful park where you can practice infinity of sports and cultural activities with new areas of children’s games, very clean and pleasant place to exercise
