Do you like to travel and patronize establishments that are not chains, older, in some stage of decay, but also less expensive, off the beaten track, and full of unique flavor?
Check out hints by area: Mexico in general and Oaxaca in particular. I’m talking off the beaten path.
And as Robert Frost said it so well:
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
Because traveling off the beaten track requires some knowledge and skills, I include travel hints, too.
Caveat: If a bug is going to freak you out, maybe this is not for you!
