Oaxaca City is a UNESCO World Heritage site and a beautiful city. A birding trip to Oaxaca combines ancient ruins, friendly people, great food and some of Mexico's most restricted endemic birds. With so much to offer to birders and non-birders alike, Oaxaca is a gem on the southwest coast of Mexico and one visit is never enough to this beautiful area.

Birds to meet include Dwarf Jays, Long-tailed Wood-Partridge, Hooded Yellowthroat, Bumblebee and Garnet-throated Hummers, White-throated Towees and the rarer Slaty Vireo, Beautiful Hummingbird, Blue Mockingbird, Ocellated Thrasher, and Oaxaca Sparrow.
