Recent Oaxaca reviews

  • Great apartment in non-touristy neighborhood

    "Our two couples shared this delightful apartment for a nine days during Day of the Dead. We stayed in the 2nd floor unit and loved the deck right off the apartment and the two bedrooms on either end of the apartment. The 15 minute walk to the center of town is interesting and a great way to observe Mexico from a local perspective. My purse was stolen at the airport and the owner, Anthony, put a lot of effort into helping me get back my passport. We'd stay here again for sure."

  • Pristine beaches and beautiful complex

    "We consider ourselves experienced Mexican vacationers. We have stayed and vacationed over many years in several cities along the pacific coast of Mexico. Typically we travel with others and stay in comfortable, high quality facilities; mostly condos or villas. We love to embed ourselves into the local Mexican culture when visiting, but also need to feel completely safe and comfortable while doing so. “Casa Anita” in the Sueno del Mar condominium complex in the Chahue Beach area of Huatuculo is the perfect place for all of this and much more. We stayed for two weeks in this spacious and tastefully decorated two bedroom condo unit on the second floor. We can state unequivocally by comparison Sueno Del Mar is by far the best condo complex in the area. The complex is close enough to walk to a number of really good restaurants, coffee bars and grocery stores. We really enjoyed getting up each morning and having coffee on the large patio and listening to the birds chirp. We walked every day and most evenings into Santa Cruz or La Crucecita and felt very safe and comfortable in the neighborhood. The staff, security and fellow owners in the complex are very friendly and extremely helpful. Always ready to assist or provide a recommendation. Birgit, Maria and Marta were all delightful to work with. With 36 unique, clean and beautiful beaches to explore we will definitely go back and would highly recommend this condo complex as a first-class quality rental property."

  • Classy Casual Comfortable

    "We were more than pleased with the unit,,beautifully landscaped grounds, and the welcome spotless pool for those hot days. The property is very secure with a wall that is covered with flowers and fauna. If you want wine a little store on the way to Dans Restaurant has it at under $10.00 A short walk to the beach and to the main drag. There you will find shops and restaurants and many hotels. Location is excellent but you will need to take a taxi to load up with basics from the larger grocery store. With 3 units in the building it was nice to visit with others from different parts of the world. Highly recommended."

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.
