JAGUARS EN SELVA
Returning rescued animals to the wild
This is our favourite market to eat at. In their food court you can find the Fonda Rosita where they make the best chilaquiles in town (in our opinion). We would recommend the verde with fried eggs and chorizo.
Taste traditional Oaxacan food and drink on a laid-back walking tour that features four sit-down restaurants. Meet the people behind the food. Make new friends and experience the city through the eyes of a local.
Hotel and breakfast spot
One of our favorite places to meet before heading out on excursions for a delicious breakfast. This is a family run boutique-style hotel in the heart of the city, with a gorgeous courtyard, only two blocks from the zocalo. The menu is a tasty Oaxaca, Lebanese fusion, we would definitely suggest their house special for breakfast.
OAXACA PROFUNDO SESSIONS
Discovering Oaxaca and food
Oaxaca Profundo Sessions is a regenerative travel organization. They are made up of international food anthropologists, traditional artisans, farmers and friends, passionate about hospitality.
Named after the famous "grana cochinilla" that was once the gold of Oaxaca, Grana lets the botanical elements of this pre-hispanic dye inspire us in the architecture and decoration of the rooms and common spaces. Set in a renovated 18th century mansion, it is equally intimate and luxurious.
Nomad Cook is a project hosted by Luis Hernandez. His aim is to provide storytelling services to people who do not have access to them. To fund these services, Luis teaches cooking classes in Oaxaca City. These are vegan friendly culinary experiences.
