It's an excellent road. First class buses put the US to shame. Only one problem... now that the road is so good the trip is only about 6 hrs. Not counting DF traffic. So taking a night bus means you arrive in Oaxaca at an ungodly hour. But the first class bus station is nice. I once camped there. If not your thing then take an early morning bus and be there for a late lunch/siesta.
Thanks 103billw. I'll check out the early morning bus I think. I was thinking in an overnighter to save on accommodation only. I personally wouldn't take a bus ride here in Qld Australia as our roads and buses are terrible. Cheers.
