"Oh! Oaxaca, your sapphire sky
it strips its iridescent light
and the peaks are beginning to get tinged
with your sun´s golden rays"
An exert of “Las mañanitas Oaxaqueñas,” a beautiful rhythmic march, is the best way to describe the glorious, mysterious, and unique skies of Oaxaca. Especially during this time of the year, a glimpse at Oaxaca´s sky will never stop to amaze you. Having the opportunity of admiring this majestic spectacle will definitively astound you. The display of a wide variety of unexpected magical colors on the sky will mesmerize you.
Why can I make such a seemingly wild claim? Because Oaxaca´s unique location in the world grants it the chance of combining the proper altitude, five-thousand feet above sea level, the appropriate latitude, close but not too close to the equator, which merge with the sunlight to give unforgettable sunrises, pampering midday blue skies, and incredible sunsets. All of this while enjoying a mild warm climate. The delighting work of art granted by the silver, pink, orange, blue, white, red, and bright colors; fade away in the crisp, crystal clear air of Oaxaca´s central valleys.
You obviously know that there is no camera that could capture all this said magic, so venture away to experience it by yourself.
