How to get to
Visiting Monte Albán is very easy as it is just next
to the modern city of Oaxaca..
Use the minibus which starts outside the Hotel Meson
del Angel or Hotel Rivera de los Angeles, running every
hour on the half hour starting at 8:30am in the morning
it takes only 30 minutes and costs 45 pesos. The buses
return on the hour, and the last bus is at 5pm.
You can return at any time on the same bus, or
downhill back to the city, though the return walk takes
about two hours. Consider walking part of the way
and then taking a local bus or taxi for the remainder.
Alternatively arrange a taxi from the city, costs
should be about 100 pesos for each direction, and you
can agree with the driver a time for him to return and
to collect you.
To combine local bus and walking look for any bus
with a sign for "Monte Albán", but note that they do not
take you all the way there but to a bus stop which is
about one hour walk from the site. The bus is 6
pesos per person.
