The region of Oaxaca is well known for its high-quality craft markets. After morning pickup by coach from your Oaxaca hotel, travel just south of the city to San Bartolo Coyotepec. With your guide, visit the 16th-century San Bartolo Coyotepec Church, the Oaxaca State Museum of Popular Art (MEAPO) and a craft market displaying the work of more than a dozen families. Learn about this town known for its black pottery, unique ceramics made locally since pre-Columbian times.

Next, explore the tranquil village of Santo Tomás Jalieza, whose artisans are referred to as the ‘People of the Belts’ for their artfully embellished works. In the central market, browse through colorful embroidered belts, as well as handbags, blouses, shawls and place mats. You’ll also discover intricately woven cotton goods made on back-strap looms.

In the nearby town of Ocotlán de Morelos, explore the Friday market, which features red clay pottery. As you peruse the pots, cutlery and other kitchen utensils, as well as painted clay figures, learn about the traditional pottery-making techniques of the Oaxaca Valley.

Make a last stop at Ocotlán de Morelos’ 16th-century Dominican convent. Today a museum, its exhibits showcase local handicrafts and the works of world-renowned painter Rodolfo Morales.
