LODGING & NEIGHBORHOODS:
Our activities will be spread out over the city, but if you want the most centralized and convenient neighborhood we recommend staying in the Centro near Templo Santa Domingo or Teatro Macedonio Alcalá. However, other neighborhoods are also acceptable because Oaxaca is well connected with taxis and collectivos (Note: Uber does not operate in Oaxaca). The host family is staying ~5km northwest of the Centro in the Nuevo Mexico neighborhood.
Oaxaca has low crime rates for being a large city, but select a neighborhood known to be safe (details in the Facebook group).
MEET YOUR HOST:
