How To Get to the Oaxaca Coast this Summer!

by Brent May

As we head into summer, our Oaxaca coast flight schedule changes to adapt to the new season. It is still easy and convenient to get to Huatulco and Puerto Escondido. Check out the details for the coming months below!

How to get to the Oaxaca Coast by Plane

From the U.S. and Canada, you can take a direct flight to Huatulco during winter months from several U.S. and Canadian cities and airlines. These flights generally end in April and May. However, American Airlines continues with a DIRECT SATURDAY FLIGHT into Huatulco from Dallas Fort Worth starting again in June.

And American has a DIRECT DAILY FLIGHT from Dallas Fort Worth into Oaxaca all year long! With the opening of the new highway linking Oaxaca City to Puerto Escondido in just 3 hours, this daily flight is a game changer for conveniently arriving all year long to the Oaxaca Coast. You can connect to the coast on 5 daily ADO/OCC buses with a 3-hour travel time or by private transfer. 

Otherwise, convenient connecting flights run mainly through Mexico City (MEX) to Huatulco (HUX) and Puerto Escondido (PXM). By flying into Mexico City, you can take one of several daily flights to either airport. Some of the flights listed below do not show up through flight search engines like Expedia. It is easiest to check directly with the airlines.
