Highs & Lows

  • The bedding was divine and locally-produced! We went to the weaver who made all the sheets and wanted to bring it all home!

  • The décor was sophisticated and right up my alley. As a photographer, I really appreciated how many photogenic moments there were in the hotel.

  • The location is ideally located in the center of Oaxaca, though it still maintains a peaceful environment inside.

    A Sunday market 25 minutes outside of Oaxaca, thiswas the highlight of my trip. Rural artisans and farmers come from the surrounding area to sell their wares (and even live animals!).
