I'm about to travel from Mexico City to the beaches on the Oaxaca coast.
Having done this trip many times but not for at least 8 years I have some idea but know few details.
There is a winding route over the mountains between Oaxaca City and the coast (Pochutla) which the first class buses don't use but which is very beautiful.
I recall cold highlands towns along the route with many wood buildings. In the past I was always intrigued with this area but never spent a night there.
I do not know the name or names of any town in this section. These days there are a lot more hostels in Mexico than when I was last here and even there's not a hostel there could be something similar.
Does anyone know such a place?
