How to Get From Mexico City to Oaxaca

How to Get From Mexico City to Oaxaca

Many travelers to Mexico start out in the country’s capital Mexico City. The city’s historic center is designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site and offers up a number of major attractions, and makes a great base for exploring important sites around Central Mexico.

But not too far from Mexico City is another one of the nation’s most popular tourist destinations: Oaxaca City.

Also known as Oaxaca de Juárez, Oaxaca City is located in the state of Oaxaca in central southern Mexico. The region is home to lesser known indigenous pre-Columbian civilizations like the Zapotec and Mixtec, and, much like historic Mexico City, is recognized by UNESCO and has become known as the culinary capital of the country.

Oaxaca City may only be five-hour-drive or hour flight from Mexico City, but it’s a world away in terms of culture and feel. While Mexico City is packed with nearly nine million residents, Oaxaca City’s population only numbers around 300,000.

Explore archeological sites like Monte Albán, natural wonders like Hierve el Agua, and many beautiful colonial-era buildings. Add to this markets filled with beautiful handicrafts and popular annual festivals such as Day of the Dead and the indigenous cultural event known as Guelaguetza.

Read on to discover how easy it is to get to Oaxaca from Mexico City and learn more reasons why you should include this fascinating region to your next Mexican itinerary.

How to Travel Safely with a Laptop

Vacations are supposed to be about logging off, but most of us still end up traveling with our laptop.

Whether we need it for business, or checking on emails and loading travel pics to our social media feeds, our laptops can be a lifeline to our life back home, and a valuable tool when booking tours, tickets, looking up directions, and researching things to do in the area you’re visiting.

While most of us check and recheck to make sure we packed our laptop, we often don’t give nearly as much thought into keeping our laptop protected both physically and in terms of making certain our personal data that is stored on it remains secure.

From the moment your laptop leaves the safety of your home, you make it vulnerable to getting damaged or potentially stolen. Thankfully though, there are many ways you can reduce the chances of anything happening to your laptop and the data that’s stored on it.

How to Show Love to Your Favorite Musicians

Music washes the dust away of everyday life, and provides us with a soundtrack to our travels. It’s also acted to transport us to a different world during the current pandemic while our itchy feet have been grounded.

But sometimes we forget the people who are actually behind the music – the musicians! It takes a lot of talent and hard work to produce music; music which we rely on to stay entertained on road-trips, and to block out the noise of crying babies on planes!

We may not know the complete process, the full story of the hardships, and all the obstacles our beloved musicians went through to get to where they are now, but we know they took a tedious path to becoming an artist.

I’m not talking about Lady Gaga or Rage Against the Machine, because these guys already receive love from their fans. I’m talking about the brilliant talents who don’t get much attention.

If music has made a difference to your life, and you rely on your favorite playlists to get you through your travels, here are some things you can do to show support for your favorite musicians.

Artists might not be considered part of the travel industry, but they’re hurting just as badly due to the current pandemic, and music has, and always will be, central to the travel experience.
