Oaxaca borders on the north with the states of Veracruz and Puebla; on the west with Guerrero, on the south with the Pacific Ocean and on the east with Chiapas. Its topography varies tremendously - from the coastal beaches to the extensive valleys, gorges and high sierra. Oaxaca is steeped in history and tradition. The Mixtecas and Zapotecas where powerful pre-Columbian cultures. Shortly after colonization, the King of Spain granted CortÚs the title of "Marques del Valle de Oaxaca". Two of Mexico's most impactful presidents - Benito Juarez and Porfirio Diaz are native sons of the state. Visitors can enjoy pre-Colombian ruins, Colonial churches, museums and a vast number of villages with differing artistic media. The climate and beaches of Oaxaca's Pacific coast rival that of other Mexican resorts.
