Great staff, lessons were hard (which is fine).
No specific arrangements were made for me to be taken to the airport so I was picked up by a taxi who asked for payment after I paid $70 for pre-arranged transport. That made me feel very uncomfortable.

Key Facts about Oaxaca

Lovers of culture will be in heaven here as Oaxaca is one of those cities where all the historical periods of a country shines: pre-Hispanic, colonial, independent, modern, and contemporary. It is an architectural gem with natural elegance in every corner, colonial building, museum, pre-Columbian ruins and the many brilliant baroque churches that are to be found at every turn. All of this coupled with its majestic churches and refined plazas have deservedly earned it a Unesco World Heritage badge. And if that's not enough to get you planning your trip already, fluorescent lagoons, lush mountains, culture, crafts, gastronomy, folklore, fiestas and many more great experiences should definitely win you over.
