Hierve el Agua, Mezcal Tasting, and Teotitlan del Valle Tour from Oaxaca

100 reviews
Hierve el Agua, a set of calcified mineral deposits that have hardened to resemble cascading waterfalls, is one of Mexico’s most spectacular natural attractions. During this exciting combo tour from Oaxaca, enjoy free time to dip in the mineral pools before heading to a local mezcal producer for tastes of the powerful brew. Top off the day with a visit to the traditional weaving town of Teotitlán del Valle.

Free admission...small exhibit space, but interesting. As others have said, the store is better than the museum.

We had a fantastic guy and he toured us for over two hours. We were fascinated with the artifacts from the Zapotec took. Unbelievable what they found. Similar to King Tut but older. Don’t miss this wonderful museum.

The musem is a bit off the beaten path but worth the time to visit. Displays apparently rotate so if you have been here before, it might be worth another visit.

We ran into friends in Oaxaca, women interested in textiles. We are not particularly interested in textiles, more than other things, but this museum was such a joy. There were two main exhibits, one of a person who had woven industrial or urban photos into very large weavings. They became abstracts shapes. It was excellent, but the exhibit that blew me away was the one about text and textiles and how they are interwoven (so to speak). It showed the relationship between the letters and the weaving. The letters were incorporated even though the weavers might have known nothing about the meaning of the words. Loved the thought that this continues to the present day with T-shirt designs even though the message may not be understood in the least. The design and colors are embraced.
