Oaxaca Centro Historico (Downtown)
Downtown Oaxaca City isn’t very big — think 40 square blocks. For first time visitors, you’ll find staying in Centro (Downtown), as close to the Zocalo (main square) as possible, very convenient.
This area gives you the convenience of walkability. There’s no Oaxaca Uber service, though you can always hail a cab. The city has public buses, though Oaxaca public transportation isn’t great overall
