If you are ever in Oaxaca, you must visit Monte Alban! After having visited Machu Picchu, Copan and Tikal, I didn’t imagine that this place would be much to write home about. Boy, was I wrong. Monte Alban is a religious and political center for the Zapotec people, and it’s location and architecture is stunning. For someone who doesn’t tend to like “canned” tourism, I can’t recommend it enough!
