Oaxaca named world’s best city by Travel + Leisure
Readers surveyed by Travel + Leisure magazine have named Oaxaca as the World’s Best City, the magazine announced yesterday.
A total of four Mexican destinations made the top 25, after readers rated cities on their sights and landmarks, culture, cuisine, friendliness, shopping and overall value. The survey began last November and ended at the beginning of March.
Oaxaca, which received a score of 93.54 out of 100, was lauded for its rich culture. “Whether you’re into art, architecture, food, history, spirits of the drinking kind, or handicrafts, Oaxaca has it in spades,” the magazine wrote of the city that was named a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1987.
