Your Oaxaca Guide

Everything you need to seamlessly plan your Oaxaca visit

We know that your time is precious during your visit to Oaxaca and with so many options out there it can be time consuming and even stressful trying to find your way. As fellow travel enthusiasts, we created what we wish we had each time we visited a new city- a one-stop curated guide that will take you off the beaten tourist path and allow you to explore Oaxaca through the local lens. Our mission is to ensure you leave Oaxaca wishing you weren’t!

Oaxaca Me Late (wah-haak-kah me la-te) translates to “Oaxaca makes my heartbeat” and we chose this name because it describes our passion and love for this region and its community.
