Isthmus of Tehuantepec

The Isthmus provides a very different experience from the coastal resorts and the more cosmopolitan environment of Oaxaca City. This is a the traditional stronghold of Oaxaca with local culture and fiestas playing a significant part in daily life. The area has few foreign visitors, but is in no way devoid of places of interest. Salina Cruz, the main town, is a working port and mostly industrial, but there is plenty of local colour to be had in Tehuantepec and Juchitán and the markets are particularly good.
