I rated the transport as unacceptable solely for the 9 hour bus ride from Oaxaca to Mazunte. This was by far one of the worst roads I'd ever traveled on. I fortunately, didn't get sick but my mom was sick the entire ride. To make matters worse, it was at night and she couldn't sleep so it made the next day difficult to enjoy. The overall trip is something that I will remember forever. I like that Intrepid included the touristy stuff that you have to see, along with some behind the scenes experiences that you wouldn't get otherwise. Traveling with Intrepid really made traveling to an unknown place quite easy and without having to put in much thought. All you do is pack and go along for the ride. The group leader was very knowledgeable and happy to provide recommendations for things to do during our free time. We really enjoyed the mix of organized outings and time to ourselves to explore on our own.
