Oaxaca to Pachuca Travel Options: Opinions?

Can't Post | Private Reply
A woman friend and I will be in Oaxaca for several days at the end of April and will go from OAX to Pachuca. We have to make a transportation/travel decision:

1. Fly from OAX to CDMX and take a bus to Pachuca by day.
2. Rent a car in OAX and drive to Pachuca, arriving early evening.
3. Bus from OAX to Pachuca, leaving OAX at 11:30PM, arriving Pachuca 7:00AM. That appears to be the ONLY bus departure time.

I'm most interested in the safety ramifications of each of these possibilities. Ideas, please?

If it were me, I would fly back to DF and then either take the bus or possibly rent a car for the drive out to Pachuca. It would depend on whether or not my/your plans included visits to places a little way outside Pachuca such as Real del Monte etc. (These would likely involve taxi rides if you'd arrived in Pachuca by bus). Have a fantastic trip!

The nearly insurmountable difficulties of renting and returning a car in CDMX make that suggested option one I have a hard time considering, Tony, and they are why I didn't include the possibility in my list of choices. Don't ask me how I know this. <eyeroll>

I'll try to consider it, though, and I appreciate you taking the time to think about it with me.

For the SAFEST travel option, I would fly.
For the easy travel option, have a couple of glasses of wine and take the luxury overnight bus.
For the most fun (99% safe) rent the car and drive. It is an easy route.

Enjoy the pasties
