We walked from mid-town to mount the stairs to the auditorium several times. The first time was for the view and experience. The second time was for some necessary exercise after a week of overeating. Probably would be a great concert venue.

On the weekends and at night time they have dancers, concerts, and any type of music events. Really nice to sit down and watch the shows.

The auditorio is nice, but it's during the festival that it's awesome! The dancers, bands, singers and local groups of children are delightful. I especially love the traditional clothing and dances.

This is my first visit to Auditorio Guelaguetza. The concert was free and I did plan this at the last minute. There is not enough car parking space, the lines were too long. The concert was the best one and only one I have attended.

I haven't been in Oaxaca for Guelaguetza but I hear it's wonderful. In the meantime, the walk up to the Auditorio is a great morning walk to get great views of the city. You can then continue on up to the Planetarium and Observatory and...More
