Cultural Information

Oaxaca is a diverse culture with shopping malls and indigenous markets within walking distance from each other. The culture is warm and friendly. Dress is somewhat conservative and casual. Indigenous dress is common as villagers come to the city to conduct business. A clean, neat, and modest appearance will be needed to minister effectively in Oaxaca.

The city of Oaxaca with an altitude of 5200 ft above sea level ensures an almost perfect climate with warm days and cool nights and low humidity.
