OAXACA/DF TRIP Day of the Dead?

Jump to last reply

I am considering traveling to Mexico in late October or November. Both Mexico City and Oaxaca would be on the itinerary; I am thinking about one week in each city. We will probably take the bus between the two cities. If anyone has taken this ride recently I would love to read comments. (I've taken the overnight train but unfortunately, this route is no longer an option). I passed most of the route in the dark…is the scenery good enough to warrant about 7 hours in the bus?

Assuming that I can still find hotels, I could plan my visit during the Day of the Dead in Oaxaca. But I fear that the city will be overwhelmed by tourists and just too crowded, not only at the DOD activities but all over the city and environs. Would love to hear from anyone who has visited the city during that period. Pluses and minuses.

If I forego Oaxaca, I might pass the celebration days in the capital. Do many tourists do the same? Apart from the cemeteries, and the holiday foods and flowers at markets, what else goes on at this time in the DF?

I should mention that I have visited both destinations several times, and have traveled widely within Mexico. I've been in Mexico City during Day of the Dead about 15 years ago, but the only thing I remember of the holiday was a nocturnal visit to a cemetery in a small town south of the city, Mixquic. That was quite a fabulous experience!

I was thinking of trying to get a room at Casa Oaxaca in Oaxaca. Would love to hear opnions on that small hotel from anyone who has stayed there. Rooms? Breakfast?
