Introduction to Oaxaca

Are you new to the area, or passing through for a while? Reduce the time it will take to seek out all of the basics by hiring our cultural host Fer for an afternoon introduction to Oaxaca. He is a born/raised Oaxacan who is versed in English, Spanish, and his native language Zoque.  He can give you a crash course in the logistics of the city, or help you with a specific task, such as looking for a long-term rental, etc.

Some things are just easier to do with a translator/friend who knows the deal. Here are some examples of Fer´s past experiences and areas of expertise:

-He is a licensed veterinarian and can help you with needs related to your pets.

-Fer has helped guests in the past with basic orientation tasks such as mapping out their routines and the locations where they can shop for certain items (which otherwise takes a lot of time if you´re not used to the way that shops in Mexico are set up).

-Fer provides walking/vehicle tours around the city to specific sites as well as itineraries catered to your needs.

-Fer has years of experience as an interpreter and cultural host to guests from all of the world. His experience as a traveler and foreign resident of various European countries has also helped orient him toward the specific needs of newcomers.


Cost can vary depending on the activity.  A general cost for an afternoon introduction session is approximately 650 MXN.

Time Frame:

This also depends on the specific activity, although Fer is flexible and adaptable to your needs and/or those of your small group.
