Known as the drink of the gods, tejate is the traditional elixir of Oaxaca. It is made from corn, cocoa, mamey bone, and cocoa flower. It is characterized by a lumpy foam formed by the cocoa flower.

Tejate originates in pre-Hispanic times, in the region of the central valleys, it was drunk in planting and harvest ceremonies. Its name in the Zapotec language is cu’hub, however, it is currently known as tejate, a word that comes from Nahuatl and means floury water (“textli”/dough and “atl”/water).

Thanks to the hard work of the Oaxacan women, especially from the community of San Andrés Huayapam, this delicious drink was not lost, its recipe was preserved by oral inheritance during the different generations from its creation to the present. Currently, every year the traditional tejate fair is held in this community, where Oaxacan women dedicated to the elaboration of this drink are placed in their stalls with their clay jars where the tejate is ready to be tasted by the thousands of local and foreign people who come to this tradition.

If you are passing through the state, we recommend you try this refreshing drink that will transport you to ancient times, then you will understand why it is called the drink of the gods, its flavor and texture really make it worthy of the name.

Today summer has begun, which is marked by the summer solstice in the northern hemisphere of the planet, while winter has begun in the southern hemisphere. 

In Mexico as well as in other countries in the northern strip, summer means a break from school activities and work, many people choose to relax in tourist destinations such as beaches, and some others stay at home, however, as we know we are experiencing high temperatures in most of the states of the country. If you are staying at home this summer break, we tell you in this article some tips to keep your home cool and enjoy these relaxation days.

1.- Say yes to plants

In addition to giving color and life to your house, these will make the environment fresh. Among them, we can find spider plant, peace Lily, rubber plants, elephant ear, snake plants, ferns, and pothos. Likewise, without watering the soil of these plants constantly so that they do not rot, you can spray them only on their leaves, so you will notice how your home refreshes immediately.

2.- Limit the sources of heat

Turn off electrical appliances that you are not using (remember not to leave them on standby either), as they are an unnecessary source of heat (as well as energy waste).

3.- Crossed ventilation

This involves wind entering through a vent (or a window or door), and allowing air to flow directly through the house and out through an opening on the other side of the home. Take advantage of the fresh air during the night, and, as far as possible, leave your windows and doors open, so all the spaces of your house that were sultry during the day are ventilated.

4.- Clear spaces of unnecessary objects

The more stuff you have in the room, the more likely it is for heat to build up. We recommend that you gradually get rid of unnecessary objects and less sentimental value that so often get hot and help perpetuate the stuffy environment.

Take advantage of a cooler summer afternoon to get them out of your room. You have three options: throw them away when they are old, reuse them to create different decorative pieces, or put them up for sale to earn some money.

5.- Opt for cool and thin fabrics

During this hot season change your sheets, covers and tablecloths for much thinner fabrics and light colors, cotton and linen will be your best allies.

Well, these are just some recommendations to have the best possible time this summer. Remember to stay hydrated and avoid going out when the sun is at its peak. Also, always use sunscreen. If you have pets, keep them hydrated and in a cool place under the shade, and if it is in your possibilities, remember to place a bowl with water for stray dogs. Small but significant actions will make a difference.

We know that in a sale-purchase process, in addition to paying the total amount of the property, there are taxes and other aspects to consider within the budget to purchase the property.

In the following article, we will tell you what taxes each of the parties involved in the said transaction must pay.

According to the Tax Administration Service (SAT) portal, when income related to housing is obtained, either by selling or leasing real estate, Income Tax (ISR) must be paid. It is essential to clarify that this amount is not fixed, and its value will depend on a specific characteristic, which is the location of the property, in this sense, it is a notary who will determine the total amount of ISR to be paid by the seller.

However, the payments that the buying party must make are the Public Registry of Property, the Transfer of Domain, also known as the ISAI (Real Estate Acquisition Tax), as well as the cadastral service, and finally, the notary’s taxes, since its function is to identify the parties that are celebrating the operation, provide certainty about the characteristics and state of the property, as well as recognize the form of payment (transfer, cash, etc.), and give the notification corresponding to the SAT in case the property has a cost greater than MXN 1,075,000.00.

Acquiring or selling a property can be a simple operation for the parties involved as long as professionals carry out the process. Remember to go to SILMÉXICO to receive advice on your real estate transaction.

The architectural legacy that the colonial era left in Mexico together with the traditions of the different states give a great identity to the entire Mexican territory. Oaxaca is precisely recognized for its buildings with unique facades, mixed between museums, churches, and old houses dating from the 1500s, together, these are part of a relic and architectural treasure that shows the ornamental richness of that time.


Not only in the city, which is considered a cultural heritage of humanity for all the tangible and intangible assets that it guards, there are also in other parts of the state buildings that are worth admiring for their colonial quarry design.


To talk about them we will start with the variety of religious temples:


In Oaxaca, as in most of the states of Mexico, there are numerous religious temples built during colonization, among them, we can find the temple of Santo Domingo and its ex-convent, the church of La Soledad, the temple of the Barrio de Jalatlaco, the church of San Felipe del Agua, Carmen Alto y Bajo, Church of the Ex Marquesado, and of course, the Cathedral located in the city’s main square, among many others. Most of these temples were built in the Baroque style, others in the Classical and Neoclassical styles. Currently, these temples are still in operation celebrating masses, their green and yellow quarry facades stand out with their internal decoration in the Baroque style.

Among other buildings of this style are the arches of the Xochimilco neighborhood, nestled in a narrow cobbled street, these functioned as an aqueduct that supplied water to the city. The Plaza de la Constitución, or as we mostly know it, the zócalo, in its colonial times only consisted of a marble fountain, which was replaced years later by the kiosk and has been modified over the years. The government palace is located in this same square, which held its first council session in 1576.

The city of Oaxaca and the state, in general, is home to many buildings that have their origins in colonial times, although some do not retain their original construction due to the earthquakes that have struck Oaxaca in different years, they have been rebuilt, seeking in each remodeling the take care of his style so that the state preserves its viceregal essence.

This is one of the most beautiful places in the historic center, in its colonial-style streets you will find facades with colorful murals that reflect the traditions and culture of the state. This neighborhood dates back to the 16th century, and it is precisely the houses, businesses, and churche that are found there that make those who visit it fall in love with it, and that definitely motivates you to take pictures in each of its corners and facades. This neighborhood is known for being beautifully decorated on special dates such as the Day of the Dead, Christmas, and others.

3.- Andador Turístico 

A must-see is undoubtedly the city’s tourist walkway, Macedonio Alcalá Street connects the heart of the city, the zócalo, with the Santo Domingo temple, another site also famous for its impressive view. Along this walkway you will find local handicraft shops, coffee, and many more products, like most of the streets in the center, the walkway is captivated by its colonial-style architecture. In this place, you can always see “calendas” of the weddings and/or baptisms celebrated, as well as the invitations prior to the Guelaguetza festival.

4.- Teatro Macedonio Alcalá

This theater built in 1909 in art nouveau style is considered one of the most important in the country, and no wonder, since its impressive French-influenced modernist architectural style provides an elegant and imposing view. Thousands of artistic shows have been presented there over the years. During your stay, do not hesitate to go to a play or show that is presented there and of course take a picture inside this elegant enclousure or outside, in fronto of its masterful façade.

5.- Museo de Filatelia 

This museum dedicated to the exhibition and collection of stamps from different parts of the world is ideal for a good photo session, you will love its huge cacti located in one of its patios. Also, if you are looking for a nice place to take photos of your pets, the MUFI is perfect, since it has the characteristic of being pet friendly.

It is difficult to list only 5 places because we know that there are in the city many corners and beautiful facades waiting to be captured by a lens.

July means one thing for people from Oaxaca and tourists, Guelaguetza. It is the most outstanding multicultural representation of the towns of Oaxaca. It is about a performance where different towns from all the state present at the auditorium their traditional dancings. 

Oaxaca is divided into 8 regions; Cañada, Costa, Itsmo, Sierra Sur, Sierra Norte, Mixteca, Papaloapan, and Valles Centrales, which are represented by its different towns at the Guelaguetza. 

Its roots are found in the ancient Zapotec and the offerings they made to the agricultural gods in gratitude for their crops. In 1932, the Guelaguetza was officially established as a racial tribute. That is why nowadays, we have every July, party full of dance, rejoicing, traditional gala clothes, food, and art expressions. 

The people from Oaxaca are proud of this unique festivity which is a cultural treasure, not only for them but for national and foreign tourists too.

This representation shows the traditions of eight regions of Oaxaca, which is internationally recognized since every year people from all over the world come together to enjoy of this celebration. 

Its name is of prehispanic origin and it was taken from the “mutual aid” institutions of the natives of Oaxaca that had a great feeling of community. The term alludes to the Zapotec ideas of “cooperation and reciprocity”. In addition, it refers to the “courtesy gifts” that are exchanged between families in a community and have a deep sense of respect and collaboration. 

That is precisely what the Guelaguetza represents, the unity of the towns of the state, it highlights the idea that, even with the differences between each town and their contrasting cultural expressions, they all form part of the same entity, which is to be Oaxacan. 

Before the 2 days in which this festivity has place, parades or “convites” can be seen in the main streets of the historic center, they announce the big party, give people a taste of what they will see at the auditorium and invite them to join.

Given that Oaxaca is a state that depends a lot on tourism, it is important to mention the significance of the economic benefit that Guelaguetza leaves every year. Only in the period of July 22 to August 1, 2022, national and international tourists visited the entity to enjoy “el Lunes del Cerro”  festivities and the activities that framed the 90th anniversary of the Racial Tribute. 

The City of Oaxaca registered a hotel occupancy of 95% due to the arrival of 152,559 national and international visitors which generated an economic benefit of 463 million pesos. 

That is the importance of this party of the Verde Antequera, it reminds us of our indigenous roots, makes us feel proud of the land where we were born, and helps the economy of all the artisans and merchants, and the recognition of our culture in the world.

It is well known that in recent years the state of Oaxaca has experienced significant economic development. This progress has been due to numerous factors that have played in its favor, its culture, traditions, gastronomy, and the hundreds of wonderful tourist destinations that this place offers to locals and foreigners. For their part, the corresponding government institutions have also played an important role, creating programs and activities whose purpose is to promote the state and place it among the favorite tourist destinations, as well as investment in infrastructure that facilitates the arrival of tourists even to the most difficult to access places.

Such is the case of the construction of the new highway to Puerto Escondido. At the beginning of the first quarter of 2022, the state government announced the reactivation of the construction of the Oaxaca-Puerto Escondido highway. At the beginning of the year 2023, it was announced that there was already a green light to start with its conclusion. As of today, the president of the nation Andrés Manuel López Obrador announced that the inauguration of this project will take place in July of this year.

Its opening represents a great opportunity for the economic development of the entire region of the Oaxacan coast since its main advantage is that it will shorten the time from the city of Oaxaca to Puerto Escondido from 6 hours and a half to just 2 hours and a half, which will promote tourism and economic development, and will reduce the transportation costs of those who visit the area. The creation of more roads is a necessity and a trigger for many industries, which is why this new access road is about to make history by improving mobility in the state of Oaxaca, and in general facilitating transfers in the south of the country, thus giving rise to more and more companies and investors betting on Oaxacan lands for their financial movements. This without neglecting the recognition and enhancement that the communities of the region will have, since this highway represents a window towards the promotion of their cultures, in addition to this, it will allow better access to health and education services, since the municipalities will have greater connectivity with the city and other locations.

The real estate sector will also benefit from the Barranca Larga-Ventanilla highway, since the more and better access roads, both local and foreign tourists will reach the main destinations on the coast more easily and quickly, such as Huatulco and Puerto Escondido, where a tourist boom and an economic recovery can currently be observed after the ravages that the pandemic brought with it, directly affecting hotels and other hosting service providers.

In short, both locals and foreigners are about to experience a historic change in our state that still has a lot to show the world. Starting in July of this year, a difference will be made in the future of the region.
