Oaxaca Times is a free bimonthly English-language newspaper that carries historical and cultural feature articles geared towards travelers and expats. They also publish the schedule of movies playing at the popular Cineclub El Pochote. Their classified section is a great resource for apartment rentals, real estate, and English-speaking medical professionals. The newspaper can be found in most places around town where travelers and expats frequent. Unfortunately, except for the classifieds, their website www.oaxacatimes.com is almost content free.
Noticias is Spanish-language newspaper that is a good source for local news and apartment and housing rental ads.
Anyone who is planning on studying Spanish in Oaxaca should check with their school for suggestions. Most schools will either book accommodations for you or have helpful suggestions of places to stay near the school, especially homestays.
