The 5 Best Places to Eat in Oaxaca

The 5 Best Places to Eat in Oaxaca

Not sure whether to write a restaurants post, a markets post, or a street food post, I decided to combine the three and simply give you the best five spots for chowing down in Oaxaca. In this city, bad food is kinda hard to come by so you can guarantee that my top five picks...
Instagramming Oaxaca: Part 2

Instagramming Oaxaca: Part 2

Since returning to Oaxaca on New Year’s Eve, my love for this city has been completely cemented. It feels almost as much of a home to me as my own birth place, London, and although I am heading back to Europe in the summer, I have absolutely no doubt that I’ll be living here again...
Mezcaloteca: A mezcal tasting experience in Oaxaca

Mezcaloteca: A mezcal tasting experience in Oaxaca

If you choose to visit Oaxaca, you won’t be able to escape mezcal, and nor would you want to – it is bloody delicious. If mezcal is a new word to you then it’s about time you visited Mexico to taste this locally produced alcoholic beverage. Mezcal is made from agave, just like tequila (in...

Looking for things to do in Oaxaca, Mexico? I’ve got you covered. 1.     Eat a late night tlayuda Oaxaca is well known for its street food, and tlayudas in particular. You can find tlayudas at any time of the day across Oaxaca City but it’s when I’ve stumbled out of the club that tlayudas are...
The 8 Greatest Cafes in Oaxaca, Mexico

The 8 Greatest Cafes in Oaxaca, Mexico

Mexico generally has more of a taco culture than a café culture. While I was living in Mexico City, I would experience sheer glee at the number of taco stands I would walk past on any street but felt sad that it didn’t have such an incredible café culture. In Oaxaca, where I am living...
15 Reasons to Visit the Coast of Oaxaca, Like, Now

15 Reasons to Visit the Coast of Oaxaca, Like, Now

I’m two weeks back from the coast of Oaxaca and my tan is peeling thick and fast. I look patchy and diseased but it’s all worth it because my ten days by the beach were nothing short of wonderful. I had beachside lunches and beers, I lounged around in the company of the nudey gays...
Hotel Review: HEVEN, Zipolite

Hotel Review: HEVEN, Zipolite

First of all, to call this a ‘hotel review’ is slightly misleading because the owner, Victor, prefers to think of HEVEN as apartments. Still, this doesn’t mean that you can’t use the place for short term stays and you are very welcome to pay by the night. When I arrived in Zipolite and jumped out...
Zipolite: Oaxaca's beach destination where anything goes

Zipolite: Oaxaca’s beach destination where anything goes

I have recently returned from a trip to the Oaxacan coast, and it was mostly great. As any readers of the blog will know by now, I am not the greatest beach lover, but as I am living in Oaxaca City, I thought that it would be a good idea to take the opportunity to...
Hotel Review: Punta Placer, San Agustinillo

Hotel Review: Punta Placer, San Agustinillo

The first thing to note about Punta Placer is its incredible location within San Agustinillo. San Agustinillo is one of the smaller villages set along the Oaxacan coast and is a definite “get away from it all” kind of place. At times it seemed like I had the village all to myself. When I was...
Hotel Review: Hotel Arigalan, Mazunte, Oaxaca

Hotel Review: Hotel Arigalan, Mazunte, Oaxaca

Mazunte is a small-ish beach village on the Oaxacan coast (although it’s actually larger than I expected it to be) and is a common beach destination for people who want to escape the relative madness of Puerto Escondido. Of course, Puerto Escondido isn’t mad at all, it’s simply the place along this stretch of coast...
Is it possible to be vegan in Mexico?

Is it possible to be vegan in Mexico?

Hands up, I am not a vegan myself, but for one reason or another, recently I got to thinking about how possible it would be to live with a vegan diet in Mexico. Of course, it’s not impossible to do so anywhere that you go, but it is certainly easier in some places than others....
Oaxaca Street Food: Part 4 - Tlayudas and Memelas

Oaxaca Street Food: Part 4 – Tlayudas and Memelas

Tlayudas are the quintessential Oaxacan street food, and a trip to Oaxaca would not be complete without tucking into one (or five, or ten). Memelas can be considered the younger siblings of tlayudas and are delicious too. So what is a tlyauda? A tlayuda is a massive thin corn tortilla with stuff on the top...
