Warning Issued for traveling to Oaxaca

by gomexico

The U.S. Embassy in Mexico has now issued a warning to travelers visiting Oaxaca or intending to do so - as a result of the escalating protests/violence. Here's the text:

"August 8, 2006

Warden Notice Regarding Demonstrations in Oaxaca City, Oaxaca

The U.S. Embassy advises its citizens in Oaxaca to avoid demonstrations being held by teachers and students. In recent weeks, the Teacher’s Union Groups have held demonstrations throughout the city of Oaxaca. Local media have reported vandalism, arrests, and injuries as a result of the ongoing confrontations. U.S. citizens in the vicinity are encouraged to avoid large crowds in the Oaxaca area. All persons are encouraged to remain in their homes or hotels, and to avoid downtown Oaxaca and surrounding areas during active demonstrations. Because striking teachers reportedly may attempt to close local airport facilities and the main highway linking Mexico City and Oaxaca, U.S. citizens in the area are advised to monitor local news reports and to contact their airline to confirm flight information.

We wish to remind U.S. citizens that even demonstrations intended to be peaceful can turn confrontational and escalate into violence. U.S. citizens are urged to avoid the areas of demonstrations, and to exercise caution if within the vicinity of any protests. Since the timing and routes of marches and demonstrations are always subject to change, U.S. citizens should monitor local media sources for new developments."

Okay, it's now October 17th, 2006. I'd like to know what, if any pertinant information concerning any continued violence. Is there still the same situation here? Should one by-pass this city & think of another for their visit. Any information would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

As abrit I use for their advice, if it's actually lif & limb dangerous ther'll head you off. Have other links. Lots of news websites obviously. The BBC has covered this. Think I first read about it at aljazeera, though.

Thankyou Antony, since I posted that, I've searched some more.

The situation is probably a bit more dangerous now than before, with the extremists using rocket propelled explosives and generally becoming more violent. The military is poised for a martial law situation when given the go-ahead by the President. But, the extremists have overplayed their hand and the Mexican Senate has refused to give-in to their demands/extortion - and, tomorrow, the "teachers" who started the strike activity are set to vote on returning to the classroom - emptyhanded. So, I still think Oaxaca should be avoided by tourists who've not been there before and who don't know their way around - but there might be hopeful signs to a winding-down of the violence if the teachers return to work soon.

i don't think so, the APPO was threated to the Teachers if they go to work

Travel Tips for Oaxaca de Juárez


by cybercutie

The big thing here is Chapulines, which are grasshoppers doused in chile and lime...seems to be a craxe around there, they are piled high in all of the markets, and even make it on the menu in restaurants...I never had the stomach to try them, but I convinced both of my friends to do so and even took pics...good times....

The annual pilgrimage to Juquila.

by cachaseiro

Every year in december there is a huge pilgrimage to the little mountain town of Juquila where the most important saint of Oaxaca is located.
That is the "virgin of Juquila".
Most people who travel to Juquila do so by bicycle and they bring home pictures of the virgins that they buy next to the chapel where she is located.
Some people buy huge pictures and mount them on their back and do the 200 kilometer bicycle trip back to Oaxaca with the picture on their back.
Some people also do the trip by foot and many travel in the support cars that follow the thousands of cyclists and assist them if they have mechanical problems.
It´s really a spactacle to watch and i was deeply facinated by it.

Packing List

The hurricane season usually occurs between June and November. Travellers to the coastal zones should keep informed of regional weather forecasts and plan accordingly.

México has more than 50 airports served by regular passenger flights. Mexicana and Aeroméxico serve the major cities, and smaller regional carriers go to the smaller cities. Fares vary, depending on the popularity of the route, but are generally high. Train service is a practical alternative on some routes. Ferrocarriles Nacionales de México (FNM), the national railway, is heavily oriented toward cargo, and passenger service can be unreliable and uncomfortable. But FNM also offers a first-class service, called primera especial, on selected routes using modern equipment. These services are comfortable and inexpensive but are still relatively slow.

Monte Alban

by dila

took a tour from Oaxaca to monte alban. i rather had spent more time here. Its unbelievable big. it was the first ruine i saw and couldnot believe my eyes.
i still need a programm to make my pictures smaller but will try to put some videos on.
tour from Hotel Mesos / Rivira del Angel 8.30 but because it was low season first went at 9.00. so times i dont know exactly as they change them. i arrived there at 9.15 and had to be ready at 11.30. the museum is very small but here are the original danzantes.
open 8-17 all days
entrance monte alban 48 pesos
video 35 pesos
bus tour from hotel 38 pesos return.
with the bus be carefull because they had to many people so some others who were in the same bus when i arrived had to wait for next because bus (van) was full.
you can also arrange a taxi who waits for you but you have to make a price think some couple paid 100 pesos
1 of the buildings has a small lift for wheelchairs although i think it will be hard to push a wheelchair here but i guess it is possible

nearby villages and market days

by susiemargare

each of the small villages around oaxaca city has a market day. i went on a friday to santo tomas alieza, where i bought several woven things (purse, napkins). this market area is very small.

i also went to a larger market, which was more of a market for the natives. it included chickens and goats for sale outside the building, fresh meat inside the building, and many, many stalls of clothing (which was mainly cheap american stuff, much to my disappointment).

my understanding is that ocatlan also has a friday market day and that ixtlan de juarez has a monday market day. i wish i had also gone to teotitlan del valle, the market day of which i do not know; the village is renowned for its weavings.

evidently you can ride a colectivo (sort of a van, smaller than a bus, burgundy and cream) to the different villages all on one day (i think). to my understanding, it departs from the side street of the abastos market; i do not know times.
