Hi, I’m Michael from New Jersey. Our family of five is traveling to Oaxaca in August for 10 days: Myself, my wife, our 2 children (13, 4) and my mother (72, a little difficulty in walking). We already bought air tickets. Arrival at Oaxaca Airport: Aug. 9, 9pm. Departure from Oaxaca Airport: Aug. 19, 7:36am.
It’s our first time to Mexico, let alone Oaxaca and I would appreciate your advice. My general plan is to stay in the Oaxaca city for 4-5 days and spend the rest in the coast area before coming back to the city on the 18th so we can catch that early flight back home on the 19th.
(1) First, do you think that general itinerary is good? Or should we just stay in one place?
(2) Any suggestions on rental house or place for a family of 5 in Oaxaca city?
(3) What town along the coast area will be good for family trip? Again appreciate any suggestions on vacation house or hotel in that area.
(4) Can we just take a bus from the city to the coast town and back or is it better to get a rental car?
