"The condo was in an excellent location, on the beach and in walking distance to town. The facility was very well kept, the pool spotless and the staff extremely helpful and pleasant. Inside the condo were lots of extras and the beds were very comfortable. Never did I feel unsafe and I look forward to returning soon."Guest: Joy Date of Stay: November 2014 Review Submitted: January 16, 2015View listing
"Fueron las mejores vacaciones que hemos pasado en Huatulco, flor del mar es un excelente destino de playa, con sus muy confortables habitaciones, todas tienen una hermosa vista al mar, donde sobre todo se disfrutan los amaneceres y las puestas de sol, además cada una de estas habitaciones dan una inigualable sensación de privacia combinada con su comodidad pues cuentan con mosquiteros, aire acondicionado, ventiladores de techo, cada una con su propio baño, están padrisimas. Las demás áreas están totalmente equipadas, como la cocina, la sala de estar con su pantaya, cable, etc, resulto excelente para entretener a los niños. En su cochera techada entran muy bien 4 coches, en fin nos encanto a las 5 familias que visitamos flor del mar."Guest: jd Date of Stay: October 2014 Review Submitted: November 20, 2014View listing
"Stayed here for the month of December 2014. The house is very well equipped for a comfortable stay...... little things like shelves in the bathroom, door hooks for clothes, empty dresser drawers, kitchen utensils, wifi, etc. There is actually one bedroom with an additional pull out couch in it. The house is roomy, lots of natural light. Once we got used to the routine for the roof water tank and bottled drinking water, our stay was extremely pleasant. Pablo, the manager, was always accessible by phone and was a delight to talk to (English) and helpful with local information. The house was quiet (no barking dogs) and the ever-present rooster was far enough away as to not wake us in the early mornings. I recommend this casita as long as you don't book it when I want to return."Guest: Lalo Date of Stay: December 2014 Review Submitted: January 1, 2015View listing
"Quinta Alegria is fantastic! My husband and I along with our two adult daughters (20 & 22) had an incredible time while staying at Quinta Alegria. The view of the infinity edge pool out to the ocean from the outdoor living room was breathtaking. We spent each morning leisurely drinking coffee in this tranquil beautiful setting. We have traveled to many beach resorts in Mexico on both the Caribbean and Pacific and stayed in villas, condos, all inclusive and non all inclusive hotels and feel that Quinta Alegria has the best view of anywhere we have ever stayed. We went on outings each day, but we made sure to be back at Quinta Alegria at the end of each day to see the sun set – seven days and we never missed one! We went to the beach that is walking distance of the villa twice – it was a little bit of a climb, but the beach was beautiful and the ocean very swimmable. We also visited other local beaches. Amazingly, every taxi cab fare to/from the villa was about $4 US and when we called for one they would be at the villa in 5 minutes. We didn’t opt for a cook because we love the restaurants in La Crucecita/Santa Cruz. Monte, the owner of Quinta Alegria, was a fantastic host and we really enjoyed meeting him. The the housekeeper and gardener were great as well - they made sure everything was perfect. The villa and grounds were immaculate! We are counting the days until we can stay there again. It was the perfect vacation for us - we relaxed, watched the spectacular birds and scenery, and had great family time playing games in the outdoor dining room each evening while listening to the ocean. Couldn't ask for more!"Guest: Lois B. Date of Stay: March 2014 Review Submitted: March 31, 2014View listing
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.

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.

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.
