Recent Oaxaca reviews

  • Simply The Best

    "After seeing the pictures and reading the great reviews, I was so excited for my trip to Casa Jacaranda. The truth is, no picture or review could have ever prepared me for the way Puerto Escondido and Casa Jacaranda took my breath away. The views are absolutely amazing, especially at sunset. The house was gorgeous and very well kept. It truly is luxurious living at the beach. Every person on staff was helpful & extremely friendly. The only negative part of my vacation was that I didn’t stay long enough. Is forever too long? There are so many things to do and authentic Mexican culture to soak in nearby. I loved the feeling of being at one of the most beautiful places in the world, without being overcrowded or pressured into buying or doing things. I did spend plenty of time exploring in Puerto Escondido. However, some of my favorite memories from my stay are when I simply needed time to decompress & relax. I would float from the beach, to the pool, to the hammock, right into my comfy bed and let the sounds of the ocean and the sweet breeze sooth my soul. I am already homesick for a place I don’t live and cannot wait to return and share this experience with the rest of my family....... or maybe I will keep this treasure all to myself!"

  • 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."

  • excellent accomadation

    "My husband and I arrived tired from travelling and were just so pleased with the well appointed, spacious condo we had rented. Maria, the administrator was so sweet and kind and made sure we had everything we needed. We felt so safe and comfortable there and the location is central for walking to Santa Cruz, La Crucecita, and lots of great nearby restaurants. The beach is short walk away and so quiet. The pool area at Suena del Mar is just so beautiful and immaculately maintained and we loved not having to "save a chair" like you do at resorts. The kitchen is modern and well equipped and the beds are comfortable. We enjoyed the deck in the evenings and mornings...the whole vacation was so great and so much of it has to do with Casa Bella!! I would add that the other owners and guests at Suena del Mar were very friendly! I don't think I would stay here with kids though as it really is a quiet kind of boutique type of setting"

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.
