About Oaxaca de Juárez
Oaxaca de Juárez is a relatively small city for Mexican standards, but it has a lot of activity going on!
Although most travelers get to Oaxaca by bus on their way from other Mexican cities, you can also travel here by plane. The local airport connects the city mostly to Mexico City, the so-called "DF" ("Distrito Federal," or Federal District). The city center is small and you can get around most touristic areas downtown by foot. There are also buses and "collectivos" (small vans that provide shared transportation) that can take you inexpensively to most nearby areas in the city's greater area, as well as the neighboring towns.
While in Oaxaca, dig in into some local culture, as artistic and cultural events seem to take place here a lot -- you will often see the posters and flyers for exhibitions, movie screenings, and art competitions on cafes' notice boards! The local specialty when it comes to food is "alambre," which can be a combination of meats or vegetables served with a bunch of flour tortillas for you to make your own roll. And in true Mexican style, this comes topped with a really big amount of melted cheese!
Accommodation is found mainly around the downtown area, the "zocalo," where most touristic activity is concentrated. Oaxaca de Juárez hostels and guesthouses are plentiful, as are cafes, restaurants, bars, and even internet cafes to keep you connected!
Oaxaca is also the ideal city to base yourself to explore nearby tourist attractions such as Hierve el Agua (the impressive petrified cascades) and Monte Alban (archeological ruins dating back to Aztec times).

HI - Oaxaca - Hostel Paulina
"Wonderful, friendly, and clean hostel! - My friend and I stayed here in October 2005 and thought it was like a little oasis. We were in a six-bed female dorm, but there were only three of us in there and our roommate was really lovely. The room and bathrooms were always clean and there's this great garden out the back. The water feature in the lobby is really calming and the staff were very helpful and friendly. It's located very close to the...
"Just feels right! - Best Hostel I have ever stayed in! If you are looking for something homey, comfortable, and relaxed then this is the place for you.
