have never found tourist information offices of much help
in Mexico aside from providing maps and hotel and tour company
brochures. To make the most of your holiday, do a little homework
before getting here . If you are coming for a brief time to
simply get a "feel" for the place, the local information
booths will be just fine.

a doubt this is one of the best airlines in the world -- nice people
and excellent service. Mexicana is a partner with American Airlines
so you can move
miles from one to the other. Whenever you get a chance fly on Mexicana
with AA miles. You won't be disappointed.

For In Town Destinations
travel is very inexpensive costing only about US .50 per trip per
person. Exact change is not necessary, but do try to have a twenty
peso note or even something smaller to make things easier. With all
of the road work going on, traditional bus stops may be moved. Ask
folks where you want to go and where to wait for the bus. If you
are going to rely on bus transportation talk to as many folks as
you can before you head on out to take a trip.
For Out of Town Destinations
In the city itself there are two main bus stations. The busiest and
most chaotic is the second class terminal down by the Abastos market.
In years past the station underwent some much needed improvements which
made it really rather okay until you made your way outside and took
a look at the bus you would be traveling in. Sometimes that was enough
to freeze you in your tracks at least for a moment or two. Now all
is much improved but for the extreme chaos in and around Abastos. Once
you are in the terminal all will be well.
the north of the city you'll find the other bus station, the A.D.O.
This is the first class bus terminal where you will find only
long distance bus service to such destinations as Huatulco, Puerto
Escondido, Mexico City, Veracruz and more. Here you need to be EXTREMELY
careful with your valuables. True experts in parting valuables from
owners thrive in this terminal and once you have lost something there
is very little chance it will be recovered. Try not to put things
you don't want to lose in an obvious place.
average taxis in Oaxaca now cost between $25 and $35 Pesos/trip.
That translates into
under US $2.50 or 3.50 which makes using taxis very reasonable. Most
and well trained for the job which can't be said of many places
in the world these days. If you happen to take a ride with a good
driver that seems accommodating ask him what he would charge to take
you to one of the out of town destinations you have in mind. It should
cost about $120 pesos/hour or about US $10.00. Here are some drivers
we think you can have confidence in.
This is a fellow that is cool under fire. I got into his car explaining
I had a back injury and despite a lunatic driver honking behind us,
he drove in a very reasonable way to get us home in one piece. And,
he was a very nice guy!
We found this fellow while we waiting for a taxi down by Abastos
with our arms loaded. He was a sight for sore eyes! As it turned
out he was also a very pleasant person and a good driver. He speaks
about 50% English and often works as a driver for guests at local
hotels. Give him a call if you would like to travel out of town.
He knows all of the destinations you may be interested in and how
to get there comfortably.
is the all time best way of getting around Oaxaca. The city lies
in a huge valley surrounded by mountains so most of the walking
you'll do in town is on flat streets. If you wish to go hiking
in the mountains they are close by and very beautiful.
