  • Beautiful Huatulco condo

    "We just spent two weeks with our friends at this condo and had a great time! It is very spacious, convenient to shopping, restaurants and the beach. The condo is larger than most vacation condos. The master bedroom is huge with oversized walk in closet and private bathroom. Appliances are modern and the unit was spotless. Excellent communication with the owner and their manager made this one of the best winter vacations we have taken. Tried to reserve for next year but January and February, 2016 are already booked. Will check back to see if there are cancellations. Love this place!"

  • Luxury, Tranquil, Beautiful

    "Friends and family holiday at Casa Tres Azules did not disapoint us, from the moment we arrived until the time we left we felt welcomed by the amazing staff. Julio greeted us upon arrival with the keys etc but to tell you the truth we were so amazed at the property we really couldn't concentrate on what he was saying, it also helped that my daughter-in-law is from Oaxacca so the lanuguage wasn't an issue, we all changed and jumped into the 28 degree ocean. Nina arrived the next morning with groceries to start out our day and Philomena cooked us a very delightful breafkast. We are not needy people but anything you asked for Philomena was glad to do it, I tried doing dishes a few times and she wouldn't hear of it. Nina the property manager was a phone call away but we never had the need to call her and she respected out privacy. Katherine your book on Puerto Escondidos was very helpful with your recommendations, we ate out every other night inexpensice cab ride to town but make sure you call the cab an over before you want to go, (mexico time) lol. Your recommendation for Flor de Maria's restaurant was right on we planned to go there anyway as the owners are from Guelph Ontario and we know them, we were not disapointed. The view from the rooftop of Zicatela was stunning. Pacho the gardener a man of many talents can't do enough for you, he climped the palms and cut down fresh coconuts for us, built a fire on the beach, and kept the grounds immaculate, you can tell he takes pride in his job. Lastly Casa Tres Azules, we stayed 2 weeks and seriously I could have stayed until spring, the Casa is spotlessly clean, spacious and decorated very mexican style, between the beds being so comfortable and the sound of the ocean we all slept like babies, no need for a/c with the cool wind blowing in the bedrooms. We all had our own bedrooms facing the ocean. I would definetly recommend Casa Tres Azules and only hope we can return next year. Thank-you Katherin and Edward for sharing your Casa with us. Shirley Lewis, Hamilton , On. Canada."

    "I can not describe in words the beauty of this place. Every detail was thought out in design. The staff was welcoming and professional. The beds comfortable ( big thing for me) and the house, pool, and ocean spectacular."

  • Cozy and Safe

    "Three of stayed in this rental until July 31st. Property very clean and well maintained. Photos do not do it justice. Extremely bright inside and out and very safe. Location perfect for us. Very peaceful. Loved the smell of jasmine coming in through the open kitchen sliding windows as we washed dishes. Especially loved the floor to ceiling window that lit up at night to showcase beautiful foliage. Barry the owner a wealth of information and the cleaning woman an EXCELLENT cook. I will be recommending this rental to family and friends traveling to Oaxaca. My teenage daughter says she felt and home and had the best vacation ever!"

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.
