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...
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...
Instagramming Oaxaca

Instagramming Oaxaca

I have been living in Oaxaca since the beginning of June, and it’s been everything that I wanted it to be. I decided to move away from Mexico City, even though I love that city deeply too, because I wanted somewhere with a lower cost of living and also somewhere quieter so that I could...
Oaxaca Street Food: Part 3 - Tamales!

Oaxaca Street Food: Part 3 – Tamales!

Part 3 of my Oaxaca street food series covers my absolute favourite Oaxacan food – tamales! You can get tamales all over Mexico, but Oaxaca is particular well known for them and the rest of Mexico can’t just compare. If you want the real thing, you have to head to Oaxaca. In fact, when I...
How to find an apartment in Oaxaca

How to find an apartment in Oaxaca

I was beyond excited to move to Oaxaca earlier this year, but one thing was troubling me. Exactly how would I go about finding an apartment? I was so worried about being holed up in a hostel for weeks that I covered all bases and was able to find my dream studio apartment in just...
Oaxaca’s Feria del Mezcal: The Ultimate Booze-fest

Oaxaca’s Feria del Mezcal: The Ultimate Booze-fest

One of the Oaxaca’s most treasured exports is mezcal. The people here are fiercely proud of this intoxicating substance, which is made from the agave plant (just like tequila) and with good reason – it’s delicious. If you have never tried mezcal before, you can think of it as the cousin of tequila. It definitely...
