Why Ricardo Cuevas chose Oaxaca

Jalatlaco is one of those places that continue to keep its charm almost secretly. Despite the apparent closeness to the historic center of Oaxaca City 10 minutes walk, anyone can wander the cobblestone streets of this small colony and immediately feel the calm that surrounds him. The secret of this calm is that most of its buildings are inhabited by villagers, only a few have been conditioned for guest house, hotel or restaurant. Inside the Barrio de Jalatlaco you can visit the Temple of San Matías Jalatlaco.

What makes this apartment unique

La casa Del Barrio is in a great location, everything is easily reached, historic downtown, markets, bus terminal, you can walk to many places in a few minutes, or take a cab at $3 the single trip. La casa Del Barrio is a quiet place and peaceful, yours to enjoy. No other guest just for you, it’s a great place to enjoy Oaxaca and have all the conveniences like Wi-Fi Internet, Cable TV, full kitchen and everything to make your stay wonderful.

The first floor is fine. 3 bathrooms, 3 bedrooms, kitchen, and diningroom/living room. There is a patio with a hammock that is fairly dark and not great. Ricardo is nice, not overly helpful but organized and efficient. I would stay with him again.

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect little spot so close to the central district. We were within walking distance to everything. Originally I didn't realize how close everything was but this little place put us close enough that we had no concerns. We felt safe and comfortably fit my family and 2 friends. Ricardo was a perfect landlord. He responded quickly to any issues that came up (my son locked us out of the room). His condo was well maintained and clean. The price was perfect for his little place. The only recommendation is that the little water heater be replaced soon as it could run out of hot water fairly quickly but to me that was only minor and appreciated every moment of our stay.

Casa del Barrio

  • 4 of 5

Everything was good except the kitchen needs more light and a dishwasher machine, bathrooms need something like a good glass door to avoid water to come out the showers. the rest of the place is good, Ricardo Cuevas is a very nice person and very knowledgeable about Oaxaca city. we loved the patio area too.

Beautiful Oaxaca/Oaxaca Hermosa

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in the Casa del Barrio! The flat was perfect for our group, plenty of space and well suited to our needs. We loved the location, an easy walk to so many things, and the actual barrio was wonderful. It feels like this beautiful city is on the cusp of discovery, and we were so happy to have our week there. Ricardo is a great host and made the process easy and enjoyable. His recommendations were excellent (restaurants and driver particularly). A wonderful visit indeed!

Casa Del Barrio

The apartment was clean and well maintained in a good location - walking distance to Templo Santo Domingo, Zocalo, good restaurants. It was a good base for sightseeing in the area and trips to archeological sites, towns with weaving, carved animals, ceramic figures, and markets.
