In 1988, we created the Oaxaca Times with a simple vision in mind: To connect English speaking tourists and residents to the vibrant culture, delicious cuisine, and stunning landscape of this wonderful city and region. Since then, there’s been an explosion of tourism in Oaxaca, fueled by everything from the growing global interest in mezcal production to the Pixar film Coco. With this in mind, we figured it was high time to completely revamp our operation and create a brand new, dynamic website.
In the coming weeks and months, we’ll be producing a ton of new content, including photos and videos of interesting events, interviews with notable Oaxacan residents, and an up to date exploration of Oaxaca’s thriving culinary scene, plus much more. Our goal is to be your go-to source for English-language news and information about all things Oaxaca, and cover aspects of the region’s life and culture that you aren’t likely to find in any guidebook. Thanks so much for reading — we can’t wait to get started.
