Oaxaca questions

We are greatly looking forward to a trip to Mexico City and Oaxaca next week. We plan to take the bus from Mexico City to Oaxaca. Are there significant differences between the Platino, Gl, and first class ADO buses? . I am assuming we can get tickets at the Condesa location bus office in Mexico City to take the bus a few days later. Is this a correct assumption?

Arts/crafts cooperatives recommendations?

We run a small fair trade shop in the UK and were in Oaxaca about 18 months ago buying stock. We were particularly pleased to find these guys:

They were a government run/sponsored co-op selling very high quality items which ensured fair wages and terms of trade for the artisans producing the pieces.

Could anyone recommend other similar projects we could visit in other parts of Mexico? We will be there in January and have a fairly open itinerary.

PS for…

Need some help with one month itinerary

I've decided to spend a month in Mexico from mid-November to mid-December. Will probably be flying into Mexico City and out of Cancun. I've attempted to prepare an itinerary but am still a few days short of my 30 day time frame. Was wondering if you guys could suggest any additional stops. I'm not keen on seeing more than 2 Mayan ruins or spending more than 5 days on the beach. I like trekking, rivers, waterfalls, lakes, mountains, culture, local cuisine. I'd prefer not to take night buses as I…
