Airport Collectivos?

Arriving mid Afternoon on the 6th staying the first 3 nights at Hotel Oaxaca Magico.

Is there a Collectivo I can get to my hotel or is a taxi the only way?

Also is there a stand that sells a set price ticket for either a Collectivo or taxi?

Thank You!

Yes and yes. There is a stand as you leave customs, with the rest of the stands for things like car rentals, right side, clearly marked, and you have the option of a private car or a colectivo. If you are downtown it is zone one, and the prices for each type, going to each zone, are clearly marked. It is very user friendly except that at times you cannot get a private car and are relegated to a colectivo.

Information was spot on at 60 pesos. The collectivo was actually a regular cab. 4 passengers with 2 young men out first. I was second at Oaxaca Magico. Small room but very clean with lots of amenities. Very good WiFi. Moving to my apartment on Sunday.

Food Here is super. So Far Mole Negra, Enchiladas Verdes & Huevos Rancheros.

How come no one talks about the delicious bread here?

Saw my first parade this evening. Going to be a fun month.
