Travel Day

There are some direct flights to Oaxaca through Los Angeles and Houston, otherwise you’ll go through Mexico City which is a big airport and customs can take a while so give yourself some time between your connecting flights. Give us your flight information and we’ll send a driver to pick you up at the airport in Oaxaca and bring you to Casa Colonial. Since people will be getting in at different times, we’ll have a light meal at the Casa that evening.
