“Great walk, 5 blocks.”
Reviewed 4 January 2014

The street is lined with colonial buildings. No cars. Start up north of Santo Domingo (The most beautiful church in town) and mosey down to the Zocalo and Cathedral. Stop for a cap in Brujula. Maybe eat, but better yet, wait until you are at the Zocalo and sit under the arcades. Shop a little. Well maybe a lot. From street vendors and the stores, too. Remember to stay on the shady side of the street, say Buenos Dias often, and enjoy yourself.

“Wonderful for a stroll”
Reviewed 7 September 2013

Wonderful pedestrians-only street. Restaurants, stores, museums and of course the fantastic courtyard of Santo Domingo. The core of the city.

“Pedestrian street in Oaxaca”
Reviewed 28 July 2013

This street runs throughout Oaxaca Centro. You can walk all the way down from Church of Santo Domingo to the Zocalo. Lots of street food to try, souvenirs, restaurants and shops.

“Exploring”
Reviewed 18 July 2013

This street is just closed to cars/motorcycles/buses. Tourist are the main visitors here, but you can see some locals as well. Many people from the outskirts of town are trying to sell their products like shirts and scarves. It's nice to walk with your loved one or just to walk around...

“Strolling in peace and beauty”
Reviewed 16 July 2013

The 'Andador' is a long, well-maintained, pedestrian-only street that links the zocalo to the Santo Domingo and beyond. It is safe, clean and scenic with all the well-restored historic buildings and wonderful for just strolling along enjoying the sights.
