Here is the data we gathered about Oaxaca Mexico flights, buses, and trains. This is my favorite place in Mexico. We came, we conquered, and now we share. Yes, you are welcome. 🙂
Buses: We took the ADO bus from Puebla to Oaxaca. Right, click in your chrome browser to get an English translation. The trip was 5 hours and cost 508 Pesos per person. Buy your ADO tickets at least one week in advance to avoid their last-minute gouging. As the seats fill up, they raise the price as much as 200 Pesos per ticket.
Normally we take ETN or Primera buses between various cities in Mexico. You will need to check their web page to see if they have a bus from your city to Oaxaca. You can visit the English ETN website. In fact, just right-click any website in your Google Chrome browser to translate into English.
Oaxaca International Airport (Xoxocotlán International Airport (OAX)): You can fly into OAX and take a Taxi to your accommodations. Uber wasn’t operating here during our visit. Let me know if it is up and running when you are here. A Taxi from OAX to Oaxaca Central should take about 30 minutes and cost about 100 Pesos, $5 USD. I have provided a list of 5 places to stay in old town Oaxaca, see above.
Flights (International or Domestic): The cheapest day to depart on flights is typically Tuesday or Wednesday. I always seem to find the cheapest flights, foreign and domestic, on Skyscanner. Buy a Mexican SIM card for your smartphone when you land here. Make sure to get your phone unlocked before leaving your home country (this applies to US Citizens).
Train: There is still a train through Copper Mountain but it does not go to Oaxaca. That is the only train in Mexico still. Otherwise, you need to take buses and flights.
If you book my recommended flights, tours (Viator Tours, Get Your Guide Tours) or accommodations, you will pay nothing extra, but we will earn a small commission. If you use our links you will help us travel more and create more information for you and others.
