Oaxaca Campground and Route to Oaxaca
We planned our stops along the way so we would not have a lot of miles to travel to get to Oaxaca driving on unfamiliar roads. Our route took us out of Cholula near Puebla on MX 150D toward Orizaba. We turned off MX 150D on MX 135D toward Oaxaca. Both of these roads are toll roads and not in the smoothest conditions. But that is one of the problems about getting to Oaxaca – there aren’t a lot of options as to how to get there. Once close to the Oaxaca area 135D ended and we got on MX190 close to the city and on more or less city streets – lots of traffic lights and traffic and a bit of confusion. After a few miles of stop and go we were back on open roads heading SE of Oaxaca toward our destination in San Francisco Lachigolo (sort of rhymes with gigolo).The Oaxaca Campground is not far off MX190 on a rough dirt road – turn by the pink paint store.
