Estado de Oaxaca Things to Do: 24 reviews and 65 photos

This is one of the most impressive archeological sites I have ever seen. Situated on the top of the hill, you have a 360 view of the valley of oaxaca. Don't go with a tour which will cost you about 200 pesos per person. Instead take the bus there yourself. There is a bus that leaves for Monte Alban from this hotel called Hotel Angel I believe. Ask the locals to make sure. They have buses that leaves every hour. You can get a RT ticket there for 15 pesos. The ride there will take you about 20-30 minutes. Once there you will have 2 hours to browse around. But if you should require more time, you can always skip your return bus and buy a return ticket at Monte Alban. The entrance fee is about 35 pesos. The best time to go is around 10:30am before all the tourist groups get there.
