nomadicwor has indicated that this thread is about Mexico

hello, I am visiting Oaxaca for Christmas, arriving in Acapulco two days before and renting a car from the airport. Just realized that that the trip up to Oaxaca will take more than 4 hours so I am going to stay in P Escondido for one night 12/23 and driving up the next day. I ve lived in Mexico before (Jalisco) an speak Spanish but don't know much about Oaxaca region and what's to see, off the touristic path. Advice on where to go, festivals aro und Navidad... what to do much appreciated. :) I ll be in that region for 1 week (Dec 23 through 30).

thanks in advance!

Hey, sorry but not a specialist on that area. I have detail info on Rocky Point (Puerto PeƱasco) located in the north part of Mexico.

I hear Oaxaca City is a nice place to visit. A friend of mine stayed there for a week and loved it. I wonder if the town will have some sort of posada? I'm not sure. You should check out Puebla while you have a chance.
