Oaxaca State is located in the South-eastern region of Mexico; it borders on the North with Veracruz and Puebla, Chiapas on the East, Guerrero on the West and the Pacific Ocean on the South.

The pleasant sub-tropical climate and the serenity of distant places attract most travellers to the Oaxaca Valley.

It has peaks almost 10,000 feet (more than 3,000 metres) high, caverns among the deepest in the world, virgin beaches, hidden jungles, and luminous valleys that house populations where, as a crucible, cultures of all people who once lived in its midst come together.

Zapotecs, Mixtecs, and the fourteen other ethnic groups still present in its culture and customs; even the Spaniards.

Oaxaca is the most diverse state in Mexico.
