  • A hidden gem in the mexican pacific coast.....

    "By far has been the nicest place to stay I have ever been, as the location is gorgeous, La Libélula stands out as a beautiful house, were every detail has been polished and a friendly and efficient staff, excellent food and amazing sunsets. And easy to get from the Puerto Escondido airport. So if you really want to relax in beautiful spot, this should be your choice, just to stay there or explore the many atractions in the region."

  • Excellent Option in Oaxaca

    "My family and I stayed at this property for one week in April 2014. The house is clean, well-maintained and nicely decorated and the view of the nearby mountains is beautiful. The owners and property manager were very considerate and easy to deal with. We did have a problem with the water supply on the second day, but the property manager came by quickly and got it fixed. The only possible downside I can think of is the distance from the Centro Historico -- about 25-30 minutes by car. This might be inconvenient for a first-time or short-term visitor. For us, though, even this was a plus since we enjoyed being in a semi-rural area with all the sights and sounds of traditional Mexico. In sum, this is an excellent option if you're looking to visit the Oaxaca area."

  • Excelent in every aspect!

    "We stayed in the house with our extended family for 7 days in January. We have rented vacation houses many times but I can tell that this was the best by far. The place, the beach, the house, the rooms, the people that work there; everything together made of that week at this house one of our best vacations ever. You really feel in a 5 star resort while there. The perfect weather and whale sightseeing added to our incredible experience!!"

  • A place close to paradise

    "What a perfect vacation spot. Right on the beach, your own private beach. Staff nice and prompt to help you meet your expectations. If relaxation is your goal, this is the place. Waves may be tricky. Not the best for young children. Then, the pool would be perfect. Bed are very comfortable."

Oaxaca Travel Tips

Staying in Oaxaca Vacation Rentals

Oaxaca is a city and region in southern Mexico. It is a delightfully cultural place to enjoy a vacation. The mountains and valleys in the area are home to a large population of Zapotec and Mixtec Indians and their pretty villages are well known for the beautiful crafts which they produce. The city of Oaxaca is a colonial city of plazas, courtyards and stone-built buildings. The surrounding area is dedicated to growing corn. High in the mountains is the ancient ceremonial center of Monte Alban, similar to the Mayan civilizations found elsewhere in Mexico. The region of Oaxaca also has a beautiful coastline with miles of sandy beaches.

Staying in a Oaxaca vacation rental is a very relaxing and easy way to enjoy a family vacation. A rental home gives more space than a standard hotel room, and a kitchen, cooking facilities and a full-size refrigerator are welcome amenities when catering for a family. Visiting the markets is just one of the local highlights, and it can be a great place to buy fresh fruit and vegetables, fish, tortillas and cheese for a cheap meal. Alternatively, use your rental home as a base and eat out at one of the reasonably priced restaurants nearby.

Condos in Oaxaca can be found within easy walking distance of the superb beaches. Enjoy beautiful views of the coastline or the mountainous backdrop, depending upon where you choose to stay. Vacation rentals can provide a quieter option for those looking for a relaxing vacation away from the bustling beachfront. With a vacation rental, the choice is yours!

Things to do Around Oaxaca

Oaxaca has some fabulous resorts along its coastline offering miles of sandy beaches, swimming and beach watersports including surfing. It is easy to rent a boat and go sea fishing or watch dolphins and turtles in the clear waters. A local traditional massage is a wonderful treatment, or try the temazcal vapor bath.

Most visitors enjoy exploring the area by car or bus. Tours can be booked to the main sightseeing locations. The area is also pleasant for hiking and cycling, particularly as it enjoys low humidity. Visit one of the many archaeological sites in the area or take a trip to the local craft villages. Museums, cinemas, restaurants and nightclubs are all available, although speaking Spanish may be helpful in the more local establishments.

How to get to Oaxaca Vacation Houses

Direct flights to Oaxaca International Airport can be booked from Houston, TX and via Mexico City. The main airlines are Continental, Mexicana and Aeromexico Airlines. The airport is located about 25 minutes south of the city and there is a transportation service available for either public or private transport.

Areas to Visit From Oaxaca Condos

The local fishing port of Puerto Escondido is a popular place to visit. It is famous for its surfing, sunbathing and local restaurants.

Chiapas is the central highland area near Oaxaca. It is renowned for the beautiful handicrafts produced by the Indians here. The center of the region is the colonial style town of San Cristobel de las Casas which has narrow cobbled streets and old adobe walls, giving it a very authentic air. A visit to the San Juan Chamula Church is a great place to experience the religious and social practices of this community.

The ruins of the Mayan city at Palenque is a fascinating place to visit. The burial pyramid of King Pacal was only discovered in the 1950s and revealed much of the Mayan culture and history of Palenque and its kings.

The Weather and Climate in Oaxaca

The climate in Oaxaca varies according to the geographic zone. It can be hot and dry along the Pacific coast but at the high mountain elevations, it is much cooler. The capital city of Oaxaca enjoys subtropical weather with temperate winter temperatures, ranging from 16 to 25 C. The rainfall is mainly between June and October and the area has low humidity.
