Colectivos (MX$6.5) leave almost continuously from the sitio on Trujano, west of Periférico Sur and north the Abastos market. Choferes del Sur (MX5.5) buses leave frequently from the Central, the second-class bus station, north of the Abastos market.

If you're shopping for the glazed-green pottery this pueblo is known for, the best place to start is at the Mercado de Artesanías (Libertad 303), where a couple of dozen artisans and families of artisans display their mostly utilitarian pots, cups, plates, and bowls, as well as assorted figurines. All the artists' displays have their home addresses listed. If ones' work strikes your fancy, you can ask for directions and visit their homes and workshops to see even more of their work. Otherwise, you can peruse the shops lining Libertad (the main road into town, head back, out of town) or Independencia (the first road past the Mercado de Artesanias, turn left) to the 500 block, just past the church. (See the blue shaded areas on the map.) Hungary? Try the El Patio restaurant next the Mercado de Artesanías, serving up inexpensive, traditional Oaxacan grub.

To get back to the city of Oaxaca, flag down a bus or colectivo anywhere along Libertad heading out of town, bound for the Central or sitio near the Abastos market. Colectivos also run continuously along Independencia as well.
