Transportation options abound.


AIRPORT

The international airport (code: OAX) is located about 15 minutes south of Oaxaca City. There are several flights a day to Mexico City and daily flights to Puerto Escondido and Huatulco. An international Continental flight provides direct service to and from Houston, Texas.


Two important insider tips:

The airport restaurant is one of the best in the country.

Also, the airport offers wireless internet service for those with Prodigy Internet.

CAR RENTAL

There are several businesses that rent cars.

TAXIS

It is easy to catch a taxi at more than 30 'sitios' throughout the city. There is an additional tariff between 10pm-5am. Taxis can be hired for individual trips or by the hour. If you are hiring a taxi by the hour, be clear about how long services will be required.

FYI, the oldest sitio is the Alameda with service provided from the north side of the Alameda Park.

Dia de taxista is August 12.

TAXI COLLECTIVES

For travel to towns north and south of town, there are two taxi stands near the Abasto(s) Market. The taxis offer inexpensive collective service.

Heading south? The taxis on Diagonal Mercadores (at the corner of the Periferico Sur) go to Ocotlán, Zimatlan, Xoxo, Zaachila and Ejutla.

Heading north? The taxis on Trujano (at the corner of the Periferico Sur) go Atzoma, San Pablo Huitzo, Telix, San Agustín Etla and other Etla towns.

Heading east? Taxis and buses can be hailed one block east of the baseball stadium on Niños Heroes. (Photo) There is not a long line of waiting vehicles, rather the vehicles pass by en route to Tule, Teotitlán del Valle, Santa Ana del Valle, Tlacolula and Mitla. Smaller towns with direct transport include San Dionisio Ocotepec, San Juan Teitipac, San Sebastian Teitipac, Tlalixtac, Santiago Matatlan, Sando Domingo Tomaltepec, San Jeronimo Tlacochahuaya, Santa Cruz Papalutla, San Andres Huayapam, San Agustin Yatareni, San Pedro Cajonos and Rojas de Cuauhtemoc.

TRAIN STATION

BUS STATIONS

Oaxaca City has two major bus stations -- the first-class ADO terminal on Niños Heroes de Chapultepec and the second-class Terminal Terrestre and a number of smaller stations that service particular routes.

The ADO terminal offers frequent service to and from Mexico City (Terminal Tapo near the airport and Taxqueña on the southern end of town, Puebla City. There is also service to Veracruz City, Villahermosa, Tuxtepec and Palenque. The station is located two blocks west of the baseball stadium.

FYI - Very comfortable buses make the six-hour trip between Mexico City and Oaxaca for a cost between $25 and $50.

SECURITY -- Be careful of thieves. A common strategy is to distract a traveler while an accomplice takes the luggage. Be attentive and when possible, do not take valuables.
