  • A better Home away from Home Mexican Retreat

    "Charming, comfortable, authentic and soulfull. It is easy to become native by catching the collectivo taxi in the village to take you downtown Oaxaca (40mins). We loved finding our way Mexico style and relied heavily on locals to direct us and help us food shop (We spoke no Spanish). Neighbors, the manager and local staff were warm and friendly. Thanks to Jean & Melinda who live next door. Thanks to other neighbors for including us in their Day of the Dead celebrations and the Bodaga Boys Band for entertaining us around the pool. We enjoyed two meals cooked by local help and enjoyed getting to know everyone in the area.We highly recommend our stay i this area and at the house. Thanks to Adele for making it all so easy."

  • The 3 R's for a great vacation READY,RELAXATION,RETURN

    "8 of us spent two weeks in January this year escaping the cold Minnesota weather at a house that was ready,relaxing, and a returnable destination. READY: We arrived on the 10th of Jan. The house was spotless thanks to Myna the maid.The pool was ready and inviting. We were then greeted with a warm Oaxacan smile from our cook, Araceli. She was ready with fresh guacamole,salsa, chips, and a cooler of cold drinks for our enjoyment. She spoke English and was the "go to" person for local information. Rey ,our caretaker was ready and waiting to take our luggage to our room. Needless to say we were ready for two weeks of relaxation. It was nothing short of fantastic. RELAXATION: The whole staff made sure we totally enjoy our vacation. Whether that meant taking care of details for day trips or making sure we had enough clean towels. The meals that Aracelli prepared,were most fantastic. Even the owner Tony called to make sure we were enjoying ourselves and wanted to know if the house lived up to our expectations. RETURN: The weather,the local people,and our stay at the villa all made our decision to return an easy one.Once you have experienced Azomalli, no hotel will do. Thanks Tony and your staff for a most enjoyable two weeks."

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.
