My wife and I usually go to one place and stay for at least a week. We had not been to Mexico but Oaxaca was tops on our list because of its food, culture and ethnic diversity. Anyone with any doubts about Oaxaca should just go for at least a week. I would easily rank the city as equal of... More

Our first trip to Oaxaca was a great success and Maria and her staff were no small part of it. Starting with a hot shower and a traditional breakfast each morning we were able to set out with suggestions for sites to see, markets to explore, and restaurants to visit. She helped us make contact with dependable and knowledgeable drivers... More

Maria was a great host, who went above and beyond to let us check in very early after an overnight bus ride. Great advice on local dining and activities. Lovely breakfasts in a social atmosphere around a huge courtyard table with other guests. Nice rooms with comfortable beds, and good hot showers. Would happily stay here again!

El Diablo was everything we'd hoped it would be. The room was nice, the breakfasts were amazing, and the small staff, including our host Maria, was generous with their time and very helpful. All the artsy little touches to the decor were most appreciated. It was a short walk to the Zocalo and the main pedestrian street Acalá, but there... More

We stayed here for 4 nights and had a really great experience. Maria is a wonderful and attentive host and can help you with hiring guides and taxis. She gives you a great map of the city when you check in and every spot recommended on there was excellent ( restaurants, shops, activities etc). The inn is located walking distance... More
