Guelaguetza 2024

The Guelaguetza, one of Mexico's most vibrant and colorful festivals, is approaching! This grand event will be held from July 22 to 29 at the Guelaguetza Auditorium in Oaxaca City. During this week, the magnificent "Mondays on the Hill" festival pays tribute to Oaxaca's rich history and identity, showcasing dazzling displays of dance, music, and authentic regional flavors. 

Stay in the Heart of Oaxaca 

To fully enjoy the Guelaguetza, we recommend staying at the Majagua Hotel Boutique. Its comfortable rooms and excellent location allow you to explore downtown Oaxaca on foot, immersing yourself in the festive atmosphere that fills the city during this grand celebration.

Oaxacan Delicacies 

Oaxacan cuisine is renowned for preserving its roots and is considered one of the best in Mexican gastronomy. During your visit, don't miss the chance to savor delicious tlayudas and exquisite Oaxacan mole. Additionally, we recommend sampling the wide variety of mezcals at Endémico, the most representative drink of Oaxaca. 

Escape to the Oaxacan Coast 

After the intense celebration, we suggest spending a weekend on the Oaxacan coast to relax and recharge. With the new highway, you can reach Puerto Escondido, a true paradise, in just 2.5 hours by car. 

Here, we recommend staying at Casona Sforza, a unique hotel with outstanding architecture. Relax with massages and enjoy delicious cuisine at La Bóveda, led by acclaimed chefs Alejandro Trujillo and Vanessa Franco.
