STREETSMART® Oaxaca is so legible you will instantly understand how the state of Oaxaca connects to all its parts. From the artisanal villages in the Valles Centrales to the Afromexicano communities & superb surf beaches of the Costa Chica, from the matriarchal culture of the Istmo to the baroque Dominican churches in the Mixteca and the cloud forests of the Papaloapám.

STREETSMART® Oaxaca covers all the bases from God's perspective to the most minute details with nine recommended drives: Ruta de Mezcal, Artesanal, Biósfera, Mazateca, Mixe, Mixteca, Chinantla, Café, and Ruta de la Fe. The 15 major languages are mapped as is a list of the best in archeological sites, baroque churches, ceramic communities, ecotourism & weaving villages, magic mushroom destinations, coffee plantations, mezcal towns and more to help you make the right decisions. For surfers and beach goers all major Pacific beaches are listed and rated.

For example: You are on the Alcalá in Downtown Oaxaca looking for restaurant Origen to taste Lechon with Chicatanas (suckling pig with peppery ants). You want to visit Monte Albán, the famed Zapotec mountain top city to decipher its meaning as a piece of architecture and its astronomical connection to the heavens above. This map reveals the geometry of the sky and how the Zapotecos designed their capital to bring it down to earth. You are attending a cooking class with Susana Trilling and are trying to show the cabdriver how to get to Seasons of my Heart in San Lorenzo Cacaotepec in the Etla Valley. And, you are ready for rug shopping and are looking for the best route to get from Centro to the market town of Teotitlalan del Valle for its Monday market with an excursion to the mezcalerias in San Bartolo Albarradas on the Ruta de Mescal and an afternoon rest stop at Hierve de Agua the ecotourism site down the road.

STREETSMART® Oaxaca makes it all clear and understandable. You are ready to bike or hike up in the Sierra Norte de Oaxaca (SNO) at 3,000 meters immersed in maguey plants the size of cars while looking down at the clouds to coincide with the local mushroom festival (August).

Customer Reviews

"A must-have for any visitor to Oaxaca.!

Having lived in Oaxaca for 17 years, I can't imagine any single item that would be more useful for someone visiting or spending time in Oaxaca than this new StreetSmart map. In its maps of the state, the city of Oaxaca and the great archaeological site, Monte Alban, and in its many useful lists, it packs an enormous amount of up-to-the-minute information about Oaxaca and everything it has to offer into a compact, attractive, and vivid package. In addition, it provides an invaluable overview that lets anyone from a first-time visitor to a long-term resident understand what they are seeing and experiencing in context. It's a brilliant piece of work, and one that I know I will be using over and over again for years."
