Our 2018 Oaxaca, Mexico Trip in Pictures

Many of you know that we travel to Mexico for several months every year to escape the worst of the rainy season in Costa Rica. If we are “friends” on Facebook, then you have been getting a steady diet of our pictures and we hope that you have been enjoying them. But for everyone else, here are some of our favorite pics from this year’s trip:

We spend most of our time in Oaxaca, Mexico, located about 7 1/2 hours south of Mexico City by bus. It’s easy and interesting to take day trips to the surrounding villages and attractions.
