Full description

Join a guided tour for a unique Sunday experience with a visit to the archaeological site of Yagul and San Jeronimo Tlacochahuaya. See the closest example of an original pre-Hispanic market in Tlacolula.

Start your adventure by being picked up in your hotel lobby in Oaxaca City. Head to the town of San Jeronimo Tlacochahuaya to marvel at the legendary 16th-century construction. Learn about its religious art and altars. Then, visit the archeological site of Yagul, a city that flourished as an urban center after the decadency of Monte Alban. Walk with your guide and understand how it transformed as an important city back in the days after the Spanish conquest. Lastly, head to Tlacolula. Walk through one of the most popular and colorful Sunday markets in the country. This fascinating place turns into the main street of the town on Sundays. Find products, arts, and crafts made by the local people here.

I booked this tour for myself and two others and Wow is all I can say! This tour was fantastic but the guide, Hugo, really made the trip special. He picked us up at our Airbnb in a nice vehicle and drove us to all the sites. He asked what we were interested in and made stops along the way that weren’t originally on itinerary. We really appreciated that and all the additional information. It’s obvious he knows a lot about the Oaxaca. The best stop of the trip was definitely the market. Much bigger than the one in Oaxaca and more of a local feel. That said it could’ve been overwhelming if we were not with a guide. The other stops were cool too because they aren’t usually on peoples itineraries. Cannot recommend this experience enough.

The Tlacolula market experience is incredible! Must be lived! However, we believe that the agency did not send us a tour guide but a driver, because he did not know anything about the Yagul archaeological zone and did not explain anything to us.
