The journey to Mitla on Carretera 190 takes about 50 minutes. If you haven't rented a car, you can catch a colectivo at the side of Oaxaca City's second-class bus station or along the road to Mitla—or hire a cab or car through your hotel to take you on a day trip to Mitla (and perhaps a mezcal distillery as well). Buses bound for villages east of the city depart from the second-class terminal in Oaxaca City, across the street from the Central de Abastos.
