Last week of June in Oaxaca...

Hi. We are planning on spending four nights or so in June(last week of June actually). I've been to Pacific side last year during summer and loved it. We are ok with heat and occasional short rains. Being inland and with altitude what should we expect from Oaxaca in the biginning of summer? Is the town still lively and all the tours are available ? Thank you. Any input is appreciated.

You are right, you will most likely encounter rain, but town is still lively. There will be events going on and tours will still be running. Probably the quietest time here is May when it is quite warm and no rain.

We get a large number of summer tourists and also people that come for the summer to experience Mexico or study Spanish.

School will still be in session for the locals. While you are here our local baseball team will have games - always fun - the crowd is entertainment enough and it's a bargain at about 4 dollars.

The part of the month has St Peter and Paul day - should be celebrations around this in Zacchilla (20 min from Oaxaca) and perhaps other places.

Oaxaca is always lively, 365 days a year. By June the rain has started, but does not put a crimp on your ability to do all the touristy and not-so-touristy things, go on tours, etc, etc, etc. For more input, either check out the history of TA inquiries about the central valleys of Oaxaca, buy a used copy of the Moon Handbook on Oaxaca by Bruce Whipperman, or consider reading some of the articles listed on these two sites:
