The new route operated by regional carrier Aeromar will bring together Oaxaca and Tuxtla Gutierrez (for San Cristobal de las Casas), operating 5 days a week.
This is very exciting news as it means Oaxaca can now be easily included into our Classic Mexico itinerary. We would suggest a stay of 3 nights - this would give time to explore the city and its markets, try some of the local fried grasshoppers and locally produced Mezcal . Also explore the historic sites of Monte Alban and Mitla and even some of the local handicraft villages.
For those interested in hiking, there are fantastic opportunities in the Sierra Norte, staying at different community cabins each night.
"The Sierra Norte trip was really enjoyable and we would thoroughly recommend it. The cabins were excellent with en-suite facilities - much better than we anticipated." DB
"The Sierra Norte was a fantastic suggestion. The weather for the walking was excellent and the scenery was varied and we coped fine with the altitude. I can't recommend the Sierra Norte highly enough and it was quite a highlight of this holiday." SH
