Its very impressive and very large. You will need to do a lot of walking, stair climbing and if its a hot day or anywhere near hot take plenty of water. More important to me was the Museo de las Cullturas de Oaxaca where many...More

After a bad experience in Mexico City where we were hi-jacked and our half-day tour became a ten-hour marathon, we were cautious about visiting the ruins at Mont Alban. Our organisers (Turismo el Conventura de Oaxaca) were great in that they arranged for us to...More

Write directly to them. Google their website (it won't let me enter it here) and their contact address is right on the home page. You will get a more authoritative answer directly from them than from people guessing here.
