This was the third time that my wife and I have visited Oaxaca. We really like the color, the flavor and the people in this part of Mexico. The heat is a real plus too. It is down, almost to Central America. Since we stay there for more than a week at a time, we tend to find places we like to hangout. I like the zocalo, the town square. But there is another part of town, not far from our B&B that has great restaurants and pleasant coffee shops. The photo below is from my favorite part of town, which is only a couple blocks from where we stay.
