First time in Oaxaca in August

Hey everyone,

My husband and I will be visiting Oaxaca for the first time in August for 2 weeks. I have read through most of the website and have an idea of all the things I think I want to do/see. But I wanted to get more ideas directly from people who have gone, and know of places I NEED to see! If you guys can give me a typical itinerary of places to go to in Oaxaca that'd be great. We want to go to Puerto Escondido and Huatulco, but wanted to know if there are other towns that we should visit as well.

Also any tips would be great too!!

My husband and I are both Mexican and speak fluent Spanish, if that helps narrow down ideas! Otherwise we are both really excited in visiting Oaxaca for the first time!!

If you go to this page (see below), and scroll down to the fourth entry under JUST PLAIN ADVICE FOR TOURISTS, you'll find a number of routes for touring the central valley sights. I do have updated and expanded stops, but choose to provide them to only those who inquire by email or have specific questions, but certainly here are the basics with most of the not-to-miss sights along the central valley routes: http://www.oaxacadream.com/articlesmain.html

Enjoy your visit.
