    What else ...

    Oaxaca is a bustling city, lively with all kinds of art and culture, as well as active nightlife. Based in the center of the city, you’ll be near countless restaurants, bars, museums, and galleries, as well as all sorts of activities happening on the street. Public transportation is widely available, though a little difficult to get the hang of, but don’t worry, we’ll show you how to get around! Either way, the whole downtown area and other popular neighborhoods are well within walking distance. Within half an hour drive, you can be out of the city browsing textiles at a nearby town or hiking in the mountains that surround the valley.
