I've been in Oaxaca for years but recently made my way to the Guelaguetza for a concert. It provides beautiful views and is actually a lot cleaner than I thought. The only thing is that they don't serve any kind of snacks or drinks inside...More

We walked from mid-town to mount the stairs to the auditorium several times. The first time was for the view and experience. The second time was for some necessary exercise after a week of overeating. Probably would be a great concert venue.

The auditorio is nice, but it's during the festival that it's awesome! The dancers, bands, singers and local groups of children are delightful. I especially love the traditional clothing and dances.

Being in Oaxaca during Guelaguetza week was fantastic because of all the side events, but the actual festival was totally worth it. For Mexico, the tickets are expensive (about $40) but waiting all night for the free seats wasn't an option for us. There is...More

Guelaguetza happens all over the state of Oaxaca on all different days of July as I understand it. To go to this Auditorio which was built under corrupt circumstances, would only serve to validate corrupt politicians and would only perpetuate the notion that corruption is...More
