I want to drive route 190 to Oaxaca. Does anyone have experience, recommendations, places to visit or stay, recommended time, etc. Thanks
Experience, lots of it, although we tend to just do the drive and not stay anywhere en route. Huatulco to Oaxaca, a year ago took about 6.5 hours. It's an easy well-marked road, with at least one federal check point. Parts of the road are very curvy, but in my opinion easier than 175 or 131. This time of year there may be the odd delay as a result of rains, but the season will end during this month.
