La Guelguetza is one of the biggest parties in Mexico, when this central American nation celebrates its rich cultural history.
The picturesque region of Oaxaca is undoubtedly the best place to be for La Guelaguetza.
During the festival the entire city comes alive with traditional folk music, dancing, pageantry and the re-enactment of local legends and folklore.
Of course food also plays a large part in the event and fans of Mexican cuisine will definitely not be disappointed.
Oaxaca is the home of the Zapotec and Mixtec people who are renowned for their cuisine, much of it involving fish and plenty of fruits and vegetables.
The region is also well known for its weaving and pottery, both of which visitors should most definitely be sure to have a look at.
As well as all this, Oaxaca also has miles and miles of pristine beaches which tourists will immediately fall in love with.
