Ejutla de Crespo is a city and a municipality of the same name, in the central valleys of the Mexican state of Oaxaca. It is part of the Ejutla District in the south of the Valles Centrales Region.

"Ejutla" is from the Nahuatl exotl and tla, meaning "place of abundant green beans"; "Crespo" is for Fr. Manuel Sabino Crespo, who fought alongside Morelos in the War of Independence and was executed on 19 October 1815 and in whose memory the State Congress decreed a change in the name from Villa de Ejutla to Heroica Ciudad de Ejutla de Crespo on 11 December 1885.[1]
