TAR Airlines to fly between Oaxaca City and Huatulco for $42 USD
If you’re headed to Oaxaca, Mexico and can’t decide whether you should spend your time soaking up the culture in Oaxaca City or lounging on the beaches of Huatulco, Puerto Escondido and Mazunte, your dilemma is over. On November 9, 2015, TAR Aerolíneas will begin flights between Oaxaca City and Huatulco which means it’s now even easier (and cheaper) to combine beach time with city time. It used to be you’d have to spend a fortune on a pricey flight or endure 20+ hours on one of the buses travelling the winding mountainous highway connecting the two destinations. No more. Now you can do both.
And to make it even more enticing, for a limited time period, TAR is offering fantastic promotional fares, quoting $688 MXN pesos (around $42 USD including taxes) for one-way fare from Oaxaca City to Huatulco and $806 MXN pesos ($49 USD including taxes) from Huatulco to Oaxaca City.
