Oaxaca is one of the oldest cities in Mexico, full of art and history and one of the nine mexican cities named by UNESCO as Humanity Patrimony. We have a wonderful climate all year long, never too cold nor too hot. Our cuisine and artisan work are among the best in the country. Within 40 kilometers around the city we have beautiful towns and the very best archeological sites as Mitla and Montealban. We also have beautiful architectural expressions of our spanish times ( XVI and XVII centuries) and specially, a great modern art movement. Fantastic beaches are only 25 minutes away by small plane or 6 hours car drive through a beautiful landscape in a mountain road.
We live in a private street with young and old neighbours, close to a main street with banks and all sort of stores and restaurants, and not far from a supermarket and a city market. We are close to a swim school where you can swim at your own or take classes.
