Introducing Tehuantepec

Even though Tehuantepec, some 245km from Oaxaca city, is a friendly town, most travelers blow by here on their way to somewhere else. June and August are the main months for partying in the fiestas of Tehuantepec's 15 barrios (neighborhoods), each of which has its own colonial church. There's a Tourist Information Office beside the highway two blocks west from the central plaza: staff are knowledgeable about the area.
