Mexico solo trip updated itinerary

I revised my itinerary. I added in 3 nights in Puebla, deleted a night from Mexico City and deleted a night from Oaxaca. I moved Mitla and Hierve el Agua to the first Sunday of my trip, because arriving on a Saturday, the first Sunday is the only day that makes sense, given that Mitla is closed Monday and Tuesdays. Or do you suggest staying in Oaxaca an extra night and going to Mitla on Wednesday? I am probably skipping Tula. My preference would be to avoid driving. I am open to renting a car if public transportation and taxis won't do the job good enough. Times in parenthesis are just opening and closing times, not that I know that I would spend that much time there. I don't plan how much time I will spend at places. I know I listed a lot of places but I put them in rough order of most to least important an I guess I might have to acquiesce to skipping some museums or maybe in Mexico City I'll see something on the day after or later than the day I wrote.

Saturday, May 20th: Flights to Oaxaca City arrive 4:39pm. 1st night in Oaxaca city.

Sunday: Day trip to Mitla (open 10am-12:30pm, closed Mondays and Tuesdays); Herve el Agua (open until 5). 2nd night

You've done a lot of good planning. But, rather than necessarily trying to check off each one of the boxes (museums, other sights) in the plan precisely as scheduled, think of them as items on a menu from which you can make selections on the spur of the moment. Allow yourself some time to simply watch the world go by at places in Puebla and Mexico City. Unplanned things that will occur spontaneously may improve your experience, as may interactions that you'll have with local people and also other global travelers.
