Oaxaca's street art: Part 2

Oaxaca’s street art: Part 2

One of the first ever posts I created for my humble little blog was about Oaxaca’s street art. The first time that I visited Oaxaca was in 2010 and at that time I had travelled to relatively few places. I was enraptured by everything around me, but now that I am living here, I realised...

Your guide to to Oaxaca’s Guelaguetza festival

July has long been one of my favourite months of the year. When I was a kid, it meant that the end of the school year had arrived, and in my twenties living in London, it meant lazy weekends spent hanging out on the grass of London Fields with disposable barbecues and cans of beer....

Oaxaca street foods: Part 2 – Mercado 20 de Noviembre

There are endless reasons to visit Oaxaca in Mexico – the incredible churches, the friendly people, the connection to indigenous cultures, and the list goes on. But right up there has to be Oaxaca’s food culture. Whenever you tell a Mexican that you are travelling to Oaxaca, they will regale you with food stories of...

Oaxaca street foods: Part 1 – Nieves la Soledad

If you don’t know too much about glorious Oaxaca in central-south Mexico, you might not be aware that this place is a bonafide gastronomic paradise. Like, f’realz, people travel half way around the world just to eat here and with good reason. In fact, I did just that on my first ever trip to Oaxaca...
Oaxaca's gay strip club: La Costa

Oaxaca’s gay strip club: La Costa

A quick Google search about gay life in Oaxaca, Mexico is desperately uninspiring, at least for somebody like me who is used to life in big cities where a whole breadth of gay nightlife and gay experiences can be found. But now I find myself in the beautiful in oh so many ways city of...

Exploring the gay beaches of Mexico

The next time that you group your friends together for a gaycation, there is only one place that you should visit and that place is Mexico. As well as finding yourself in the land of delicious tacos, ridiculously cheap beer, and hot Latins, you will also have the opportunity to spend time on the gay-gay-gay...

If you are visiting Oaxaca, it imperative that you do not limit your trip to the city of Oaxaca itself. One of my favourite things to do when visiting this part of Mexico is to visit the outlying towns and villages on their market days. There are a number of amazing small towns not far...
Hierve El Agua:  Heart stopping amazingness in Oaxaca

Hierve El Agua: Heart stopping amazingness in Oaxaca

At the end of January, I was super fortunate to be able to return to one of my favourite places in the whole world, Oaxaca, after first visiting in 2010. Oaxaca is a magnificent place. The streets are full of magic – you can smell Mexican hot chocolate on the street corners, see Zapotec women...

That night I partied at Oaxaca’s only gay club.

The recent news that Mexico’s Supreme Court has overturned a law that prevented same sex marriages in the state of Oaxaca is bloody amazing. I mean, it’s so obviously the right thing and it doesn’t take a genius to understand why. But still, it’s important because many parts of the world are struggling with LGBT...

Oaxaca is one of those cities that got me in my gut. If you’ve ever visited the capital of Oaxaca state, I’d be amazed if you weren’t completely taken with it too. The streets are lined with brightly coloured houses and on the corners of every street you will find a vendor cooking up tlayudas...
