A Travel Guide to Oaxaca

How to get there: 

Getting there is super easy.  There are direct flights from Los Angeles to (OAX) via Volaris or connect through Mexico City. Plenty of taxis ready to take you to your hotel when you land. But it is much more comfortable  to book a driver through your hotel in advance. The fees are generally 600 MXN (around $30) for a small car up to 3 ppl with luggage or a van 1000 MXN (around $50) for large groups up to 12 ppl.

There many dining options with a view in old town Oaxaca but the food at this seemingly touristy joint has the best food and value. If you see sweet corn cuitlacoche or huitlacoche on the menu make sure to order it.  For 4 people and with plenty of food and cocktails we spent approx $60/person here for dinner.
