The state is best known
for the indigenous
people and cultures. The
most numerous and best
known are the Zapotecs
and the Mixtecs, but
there are sixteen that are
officially recognized. These
cultures have survived better
than most others in Mexico due
to the state's rugged and isolating
terrain. Most live in the Central Valley
region, which is also an important
area for tourism, attracting people for it's
archeological sites such as Monte Alban and Milta,
(11) native cultures and crafts. Another important
tourist area is the coast, which has the major
resort of Huatulco and sandy beaches of Puerto
Escondido, Puerto Angel, Zipolite, Bhia De Tembo,
and Mazunte. (12) Oaxaca is also one of the most
biologically diverse states in Mexico, ranking in the top three,
along with the Chiapas and Veracruz, for numbers of reptiles,
amphibians, mammals and plants.
