Oaxaca offers many options for transportation and guides suitable for different budgets. Hotel concierges, as well as smaller bed and breakfast properties, can arrange them. Most local drivers charge approximately 11 pesos hourly, which is quite reasonable, particularly if shared with others.
These drivers offer special services and their fees are higher accordingly:
Constantino (Tino) Jiménez López
Tel. (from the States: 011 52 951-513-4434; in Oaxaca: 513-4434)
Beware, he is not always a regular e-mail checker, so if time elapses, lift the phone to get him. Tino is extremely knowledgeable about folk artists in the pueblos, having assisted Arden and Anya Rothstein in creating their folk art book. He makes everything easy and fun, and assists in shipping folk art treasures home.
