Places to stay in Tlacolula de Matamoros
My family and I love to welcome people and share our cultural immersion experience here in Valley region, just 25 min east of Oax city. Tlacolula is famously known for its Sunday Market, but there is so much more to do here. Just come our way!
I decided to turn my parent's dream home into a Bed and Breakfast. The stay at the house would be ideal for travelers looking to spend a weekend or more in a relaxing area full of tourists attractions but it's also an ideal location for those seeking an alternative immersion experience. Oaxaca offers various attractions year-round so you are welcome to come anytime. Casa Las Azucenas is a spanish hacienda style home with all doors are located facing a central patio and is decorated with local art and bright colors. We have a total of 2 bedrooms we rent on Airbnb. These rooms share an entrance and are separated by a wall and a short hallway. Bedroom 1 is quite spacious: it has a single bed, a bunk bed: double bed at the bottom and a single bed at the top, a couch and a flat screen apple tv with Netflix! Bedroom 2 has a full size bed and closet space. We only accept one reservation at a time so if you are a party of 1-2 you’ll be staying in Bedroom 1 and be able to use Bedroom 2’s living room and tv. For parties 3-4 you’ll be sharing using both rooms and have 4 beds available to sleep individually in them. We have one spacious bathroom with running water (hot & cold), a nice shower/bathtub and a smaller bathroom out towards the front. It has a more rustic vibe and is also available to shower in with hot water. We also have a washing machine, fans and closet space. This is a wonderful and diverse place which I call home and I would like to share it with the world. I studied abroad all over the world and backpacked while in college using Airbnb,so I know what travelers seek. This location is the best of both worlds: the small town immersion experience and the vibrant City of Oaxaca a short distance away. I have spent all my summers here in Tlacolula since I was a kid so I guarantee you will love your time and experiences here! I am easily available or the house manager to greet guests upon arrival and to make sure guests are comfortable.
Casa Las Azucenas is nestled in the town Tlacolula de Matamoros, Oaxaca. We are located on a quiet private neighborhood not too far from the center of town. We are a 30 minute drive from the City of Oaxaca. We have the MITLA and YAGUL archeological sites 10 minutes away. Hierve el Agua, mineral infused springs 40 minutes away. Ecotourism (bike riding, zip-lining, horseback riding) 40 min away. We are known for our vibrant Sunday outdoor market where local indigenous communities come together to sell their products; it's a sight you cannot miss! You can also explore our church built in 1560, try our famous sorbets, eat at local restaurants and taco stands, and taste the world famous Mezcal. The Patron Saint town celebrations take place in October and then comes the Day of the Dead festivities in November which you are more than welcome to join in.
  • Comfortable, pleasant, spacious, quiet, complete stay.

  • Lilly is very helpful and knowledgeable and speaks perfect English. There is a lot to visit in the valley. Don't miss Hierve el Agua, in particular. The place is very homey and relaxing.

    Lori And Mark2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • Lily and her husband were gracious hosts and made me feel welcome. The home was located on a nice quiet street not far from the center where the Sunday market takes place. The place itself was very nice in every way. The room was comfortable and impeccably clean. The kitchen was huge and well supplied with whatever you could possibly need. There was a nice open patio and there as a security gate. Definitely recommend this place.

    Michael2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • An exceptional experience !!! Very well located place in a very quiet area. With quick access to the attractions of the area. The hostess is very friendly and always on the lookout. The impeccable and very comfortable house.

    Abimael2020-01-22T00:00:00Z
  • To arrive at Lily and Ricardo is to find oneself at home! The room is comfortable, everything is clean bed with a sommier and good sheets of cotton .... Happiness. The bathroom is outside but that's not a problem at all. It is spacious, clean and the shower is very good! Then the breakfasts is important! This is a moment where we can meet our guests and where they can advise us and offer interesting activities and in this Lily and Ricardo excellent! I will tell you something, they are "Super Hosts" who lost their title because of circumstances out of their control, but will find it once the deadline imposed by the platform has fallen. I went mainly to great hosts on my two-month trip, and I can tell you that the service and listening they offer are exceptional! Go without hesitation at Lily and Ricardo I recommend them to 200%

    Monique2019-04-02T00:00:00Z
  • We loved staying with Lily. Her cousin Ricardo was also very helpful. The Market is great. We loved her dogs. There’s tons to do and see around. It was also nice to have a tv and take it easy at night after weeks of travelling. Breakfast is a plus too. Highly recommend this place. Lily straddles two cultures and is fully bilingual btw too!

    Sofi2020-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • A nice location in a sleepy town. A lovely accommodation, a comfortable bed but no toilet seat. Close to the Sunday tianguis if that's why you're visiting.

    David2019-12-16T00:00:00Z
  • The bed was very comfortable, the place very clean. Water from the shower with good pressure and hot. The very spacious apartment. Highly recommended.

    Rebe2019-10-31T00:00:00Z
  • The place has a very good location. The cleaning is great but the mattress is spectacular, you can rest very well. The location a few meters from the church and chapel of the Lord of Tlacolula. The service is good: internet, hot water, etc. I would come back.

  • Many thanks to Paul’s parents who went above and beyond to make our stay pleasant. They offered us home made soup and checked in on us to make sure all was good. The day we left they gave us a ride to the bus stop. Very generous people! Just note that this place is located at the edge of town at the end of a dirt road. While it is only a 13-min walk, its pretty desolate at night.

    Georgina2019-12-31T00:00:00Z
  • Paul was more than welcoming during our stay and our stay in Tlacolula will be unforgettable.

    Alexis2019-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great comfortable stay at Paul's place with 3 people. Very nice to have the place to ourselfs and option to cook, everything you need is there. Its a 15 minute walk from the centre, but safe and easy. Good value.

    Marly2019-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent service!

    Alondra2018-11-30T00:00:00Z
  • Very good place to stay in Tlacolula, Paul and his father are very kind and friendly!

    Téo2018-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay at Paul's apartment in Tlacolula. Great location near the centre and famous market square, with plenty of late night shops nearby. The place was very clean and pleasantly fresh, and was equipped with everything you would need for a comfortable stay, including a cooking corner and a washing machine. Unfortunately there was no wifi in the apartment, but it didn't bother us much. Overall top value for money!

    Nicola2018-11-12T00:00:00Z
  • Paul's place is quiet and you have the whole place to yourself. He spent some time talking to us as we settled in, giving us some tips about what to do in the area. Also, there is WiFi now at the house, although Internet is spotty (It is a pretty rural area, after all.) All in all I can recommend staying there, Paul is a great host.

    Jonas2018-08-06T00:00:00Z
  • Paul is a very kind person, we had the opportunity to meet his father and he is even more kind, the place is a bit away from the center of Oaxaca but it was not a problem for us since it is close to boiling water, mitla and tule They also charge only 30 pesos for going to the Oxaca center. the place is quiet and we enjoyed our stay.

    Tlacolula de Matamoros, Oaxaca, Mexico

    This is comfortable and spacious unit. Its walking distance from coffee shops, restaurants and the Sunday Plaza, the biggest market place in the region with food, fresh produce, textiles, pottery, furniture, traditional clothing. 40 minutes will take you to El Tule. 30 minutes will take you to Mitla. It’s located 45 minutes from the international airport, Hierve El Agua, Montel Alban, the main city and many other tourist places, including textile and pottery towns. It’s an excellent location!
    These newly built apartments will provide a comfortable stay and right now the RATES are very low!!! The space is centrally located in Tlacolula, Oaxaca. It's walking stance to the Plaza and other attractions in the town. The unit provides a bed, sofa, it's own bathroom and window view to the street. The town is 30-45 mins away from Oaxaca City and 30-45 mins away from Mitla - the next big town over.
    The town is small/medium size. You can walk everywhere or take a 'moto-taxi' to your destinations within the town. There are lots of stores and restaurants nearby even located right underneath the apartments.
  • An excellent place if you are looking to stay, all services and incredibly comfortable! The mattresses are very soft and the apartment is spacious and super well arranged! Its location is quite good if you are looking to visit the famous Tlacolula market. The attention is incredible, if we require something the second we received an answer. Overall an amazing establishment, I've stayed here twice and both have been memorable.

    Gustavo Antonio2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent place to stay, very clean, comfortable and modern, has everything the publication says, I highly recommend it, it is an excellent option to rest and in an excellent location.

    Isaac2019-12-16T00:00:00Z
  • The place is really incredible, I far exceed our expectations. It is very spacious, clean, pleasant and safe. Rutilo was very kind and made some recommendations of places close to visit, and his answer to our questions was very fast. We will definitely return again.

    Sebastian2019-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • The place was amazing! Sparking clean and really comfortable, close to the mercado and the church! I’ll definitely come back soon!

    Ares2019-07-04T00:00:00Z
  • My stay at rutilio's place was excellent and comfortable . It was super close to everything and you can find almost anything you need around the place. I traveled with kids and family so I rented two rooms (A&B) and it was great. The place was safe and secure . I will be back to enjoy all the beautiful sights and great food Oaxaca has to offer .

    James2019-06-19T00:00:00Z

    Yobani2019-06-04T00:00:00Z
  • Rutilio’s place was simply excellent. Clean, very well appointed, an amazing shower, and it just had everything we needed. Rutilio was very communicative with us when we asked questions and I felt well taken care of. No question that if I return to tlacolula I will be staying here again!

    Arielle2018-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent services, the facilities are of excellent quality, it is in an area very easy to reach, I highly recommend it, I have been staying there more than once and I always receive the best services and facilities for my stay, I hope to return very soon. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    Guadalupe2019-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment was perfect for our family of 4 and nicer than the pictures! We enjoyed staying for a week in Tlacolula as it's a bit off the tourist track (except on Sunday market day). The apartment was clean, large, and comfortable, with lots of nice touches. Rutilio answered our questions really quickly and gave us pointers to the area. We'd definitely stay there again when/if we return to the Oaxaca area.

    Lora2019-07-22T00:00:00Z
  • The place was just as expected and more! The location is great and everything is walking distance. Loved that the Sunday market was right outside our door as well. Will definitely recommend!

  • Rutilio's place was excellent , clean and very comfortable. The place is located walking distance to the mercado and the town square , there are many places to eat and shop as you make your way to the mercado . I traveled with kids and was pleased with the many amenities the place comes with .(kitchen, tv, WiFi ,Netflix comfy beds)etc. It's a great place to stay over all and will be back to stay and enjoy the beautiful sights and food of Oaxaca .

  • Quite rustic and a great break from the city.

    Amie2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • This is a magical little space. Rustic, private, and beautiful.

    Kaveh2020-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • If you are a nature loving hippie like me, stop your search now and just book Bambú already. This cosy and eco friendly bungalow will not disappoint. It is located in a perfectly breezy garden that is yours to relax in. You will be showering with collected and cleaned rainwater and are provided with a large jug of fresh water to cook with and drink from so you don't have to purchase wasteful single use bottles. Manuel and Yanet are genuinely kind people and I felt so looked after by them. They helped me so much with getting around town, giving recommendations, helping me to find an amazing hike and sharing vegetables from their garden. They also gave me a private dying and weaving class (for an extra cost of course) and in the end I decided to order a custom tapete from Manuel. He is a truly talented artist. They also introduced me to some family members and friends and their sweet dog, Afrika, who lives on the premises who will protect you and give you cuddles. There's no wifi so get ready to unplug and enjoy nature or walk 2 blocks to the nearest cafe to connect.

    Jackie2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • What an amazing plot of land, where they grow all their own veg. The dog was lovely. We really enjoyed our 4 days, and managed to cook for ourselves every night in the basic kitchen. Manuel and Janet were very hospitable. Thanks

    G2020-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • Tis is a magical place. In the middle of nature yet not far from the pueblo. Manuel and his family where wonderful. They wanted to show the true village culture and showed us how they color the wool Nd invited us to a wedding. The only minus was that the kitchen doesn't have many materials to cook with. Other than that superb. Muchas gracias Manuel & familia

    Elie2020-01-15T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place and welcome from the hosts

    Josué2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • The farm in Teotitlan is amazing. With the backdrop of the mountains, this quaint and quiet space is full of color and warmth. There is an organic garden full of vegetables, herbs and flowers, fruit trees, succulents galore, beautiful plants and a pond. We had a great time and are grateful to Manuel's family for all of their help and hospitality. We would love to go back. My favorite part was the farm dog, Africa, who took long walks with us through town and hiking and kept us feeling looked after.

    Krissi2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • Manuel's space is very beautiful. The place is five minutes from the handicraft market and downtown. Manuel and Yanet were excellent hosts and allowed us to get to know Teotitlán in a very intimate way. I highly recommend this accommodation.

  • A really pleasant experience. Best of all is the kindness with which they receive you and the attention at all times. The house has all the services (kitchen with utensils to use, refrigerator, place to hang clothes) and the room has its own bathroom. It has an excellent location, 3 blocks from the clinic, and all at a very affordable price. Highly recommended

  • For the price you pay you actually get a lot more than expected. These rooms are located in unfinished building (like a future hotel), nevertheless rooms are dully functional. You even have hot water! Clean bed linens, towels, everything is present. Plus you can park your can or motorcycle in the yard behind the walls (very secure). So for the price less than for camping in a tent you get fullsize bed, hot water and private space. Perfect value for the money

  • Stayed here for one night. You need to understand that this is an ordinary private house for locals, respectively, all completely local-local. The room is large, clean, but not very bright due to its location on the ground floor under the stairs. At night it was 2 degrees, but it was warm in the room. The location is great! A 3-minute walk to the center, 5 minutes to the archaeological zone, but you can even walk for about 25 minutes. We liked it, would stay again. But if you are looking for conditions a little decent, it is better to find something more expensive. Everything is very simple here. Muchas gracias! Todo fue muy bien! La casa está en 5 minutos caminando al centro y 25 minutos caminando a la zona arceologica.

  • The house is amazing, we really had a great time with the family. The only bad thing is the location, to go to a store you need a car. Beyond that, everything is really cool.

    Immerse yourself in the traditional Zapotec way of life. Join our workshops: rug weaving, natural dyes, Temazcal (sauna), cooking or learning our native Zapotec language. Explore the countryside and surrounding landscape on horseback riding or hiking. You'll stay in the shrine room with an altar, flowers, family portraits and decorations. Join us for the numerous festivals and authentic traditions all year round in our village!
    OUR HOME: A family of four: Mario is my Dad, my mom is Leonor, and Celestino also has access to manage this account when I am traveling to showcase our rugs abroad. Our house is only 3 small blocks from the center of town. There is a Farmers Market every morning 8:30 to 11:00am which is a great place to get a traditional Zapotec breakfast. Get your favorite freshly made juice, buy some tamales made with native corn and local herbs, tamal de mole negro or tamal amarillo en hoja de milpa. There are several food stands where you can byu food to go or sit there and enjoy breakfast in the market. There are several restaurants and places to eat. From award winning restaurants where famous chefs have come to learn about Prehispanic foods to a small front shop restaurants run families. (Read more at the bottom). You'll be staying in our newest rooms specially conditioned to host airbnb guest. The room has large windows, ceiling fan and mosquito screens. We also put a nice hammock in there. We have a big house with a large patio where we keep some livestock (goats, sheep, horses, cows and free range chickens) you are welcome to help feeding them ;-) we are just happy to share our culture and meet people from all over the world, you'll get a chance to live the Zapotec culture, enjoy listening to our native language, going shopping to the local farmers market and joining many of the village festivals and traditions. Zapotec architecture is centered around the household activities, the house is huge and spread around a central patio. There is a separate room for everyone. You are welcome to use the kitchen, we will make a hot drink and offer sweet bread for breakfast. The bathroom (for some) is inconveniently located at the back of the house (blue room) so expect to walk around the patio a lot (good exercise). THINGS TO DO: As part of your stay we will show you how we make our rugs; we grind some cochineal to show you how we get different colours from the bugs, my mom is very good at spinning wool and very patient if you would like to try it, we even teach you the very basics of weaving on the looms if you are up for it. In one of the rooms we have a large gallery with a varied collection of rugs, bags, textiles and other small crafts that my family makes. Feel free to take as much time as you like to do your shopping while you stay with us ;-) You are welcome to join us at parties or festivals in the village if there are any during your stay. My aunts run a shop in front of the local market and every morning ladies meet for shots of Mezcal and other spirits before going to the market for grocery shopping; you are welcome to join in and learn about the many varieties of Mezcal and the way in which it can be drank for fun, healing or spiritual purposes. HIKING: There is a trail that goes to the sacred peak in front of my house (picacho) this is where legend has it that our ancestors first arrived to. The great spirit manifested itself in the great sky in the form of a huge beautiful bird accompanied by the seven pleyades. At the top of this mountain, the great spirit gave all the land that the eye could see to the Zapotec people for them to care and live. This why private property was and it is still not entirely part of the view of life in Zapotec communities. We recommend doing this hike early in the morning or in the afternoon, it takes 1 hour to reach the top on a steady phase. WORKSHOPS: Workshops are not included in the airbnb price, this are sold separately. We run them everyday when we have guests. NATURAL DYES. Learn how to dye using cochineal (Dactylopius Coccus) a bug that growns on nopal cacti and that changed the way Europeans saw color and did business in the 16th century. We would also dye with another local and seasonal plant to explain how to achieve color variation and fix the dye. All materials are provided and you get a skein of yarn of every color died. The workshop lasts around 4 hours and the next day we take out the died yarn. It costs 1,000 pesos per person. WEAVING. You get access to a warped loom and materials to weave your very own rug with our coaching. You get 6 hours of coaching per day and all the materials and tools you need to weave. Depending on your weaving skills and the pattern you would like to learn you can make a simple pattern rug in a day or a more detailed pattern in 3 days. The cost is $1200 pesos per day. $2000 pesos for two days or 2,800 pesos for three days. Message us for longer and more advanced weaving classes so we can discuss the details and make the arrangements. COOKING. Let us know if you would like to cook a prehispanic Zapotec dish with us. Cook mole from scratch, learn how to make hand made tortillas, sopa de guias (tender squash leaves soup), segueza (prehispanic mole), atole or champurrado. We will discuss the recipes according to the season and dietary requirements. The cost is 1000 pesos, all inclusive (ingredients and teaching). HORSEBACK RIDING. My brother Celestino could arrange horse riding sessions for one or more people to explore the country side, ride on the foothills, enjoy the landscape of agave fields or stop at the local damn where migratory birds arrive. You can tailor your ride according to your interest. 1 to 2 hours ride: $600 pesos per person. 2 to 4 hours ride: $1,000 pesos per person 4 to 6 hours ride: $2,000 pesos per person TEMAZCAL. We can also arrange the traditional Zapotec Temazcal with an experienced lady healer; she has been healing people for over 20 years and is well renowned in the area. The temazcal is a small adobe room which is layered with healing herbs and then steamed from the hot rocks on the fire pit. You entern the temazcal naked (optional) and lay down on the floor. The healer will use a bouquet of herbs and plants to bring the steam on your body, then you will start to get hot and to sweat. You tell her to stop any time and take a break inside or outside of the temazcal. You can go in and out as many times as it pleases you during the session. The idea is that when you crawl out of the Temazcal you are being born again, this time from the womb of mother earth. The family prepares a hot drink made with toasted corn kernels for you to drink after the experience. The temazcal session lasts up to two hours and it costs $350 pesos per person, payable up front. Check availability in advance. We accept credit cards for all your purchases during your stay. There are no ATMs in the village, the nearest one is 20 minutes drive away in Tlacolula or el Tule. Where to eat: If you go out of my house and walk two blocks you get to Av. Juarez where most of the restaurants are. Turn right and you will find Restaurant Guelaguetza, a medium sized family owned restaurant offering local dishes at affordable prices. Two blocks down on Av Juarez is Restaurant El Descanso, very clean and beautifully decorated, the food is tasty and the price range is medium. Once and a half blocks from el Descanso is Restaurant Tlamanalli, run by Abigail Mendoza and her sisters. Abigail has been traveling the world to promote Zapotec food and has hosted famous Chefs like Anthony Burdain, Tomasina Miers and Alejandro Ruiz. The food is well made respecting the traditional Zapotec tradition with no short cuts; abigail uses the Metate to grind all her ingredients. A three course meal with drinks would cost around $1000 pesos, no credit cards are accepted. El Jaguar is a nice and small restaurant down the road from Tlamanalli, it is run by my Cousing Isabel. Just like every other woman in town, she cooks very tasty traditional Zapotec food at affordable prices using local ingredients and ancient recipes. Right next door to Jaguar is Conchita, a small Comedor that serves typical Mexican "street food" and local dishes, she opens until late 10:00pm. Restaurant Tierra Antigua is another well decorated and nice restaurant of the medium scale serving Authentic and delicious Zapotec food at the entrance of town on Av Juarez.

There are festivals and celebratiosn all year round and in addition to that we have a beautiful countryside and surrounding mountains. There are three Mezcal factories at the entrance of the Village. From Fancy expensive to authentic less expensive. There is poor mobile coverage in the village, but we have wifi. COFEE HOUSES AND RESTAURANTS: On Avenida Juárez there are all sorts of coffee places and restaurants. Cafe Drupa´s: good coffee! El descanso: clean, tidy, not too expensive. Tlamanally: internationally famous and well renowned Abigail Mendoza and her sisters cook the same food that everyone else cooks in Teotitlán but presenting it in a nice atmosphere and setting. Expensive (around 1000 pesos for a full course meal per person). Dulizuún: good food and coffee, not too expensive. El Jaguar: authentic Zapotec food cooked by my cousin in her family home. Nice and not expensive at all. Conchita: typical and tasty Mexican food, not expensive at all. Tierra antigua: nice setting, good food and not too expensive.
  • A wonderful stay in the countryside. The Bautista Laszos are such warm and welcoming people. I was able to make a beautiful little rug under mama Leonara, papa Mario and little brother Celestino's attentive tutelage.

    David2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • Stay at This fabulous place in Teotitlan. Get to know a lovely family. Learn a lot about Zapotec culture and cosmology especially weaving, designs and natural dyes and a lot more. Walk around the village and hike up the sacred mountain. Enjoy the hospitality and be curious. Thank you Samuel, Celestino, Leonora and Mario!

    Tyler2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Samuel’s family is lovely and helpful regarding getting around to various excursions! I felt very at ease hanging out at their space.

    Mindy2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • The airbnb is in a great location, just a few blocks from the market and restaurants. The room is very comfortable and clean. The shared bathroom is very clean too. A kitchen is made available to us. We can watch the craftsmen weave and ask as many questions as we want

    Jean-Benoît2020-01-25T00:00:00Z

  • Immerse yourself in Oaxacan culture by staying here and taking advantage of all the extra activities offered. I did the horse back riding, weaving lesson, and Temazcal sauna. Wonderful experiences not to be missed. The whole family is wonderful and you can be a part of it for your stay!

    Sarah Beth2020-01-08T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic experience staying with Sam's family. Everyone was extremely helpful and friendly and their home is wonderful. Highly recommended!

    Lewis2019-12-21T00:00:00Z
  • I had a lovely two day stay at Samuel's place, which turned out to be one of the highlights of my trip. Although Samuel wasn't in town while I was there, he was easy to get in touch with when I had questions, and his family made me feel welcome as soon as I arrived -- Leonor, Mario, and Celestino were wonderful hosts throughout my stay. I loved spending time at their beautiful farm and the surrounding area. I even had the opportunity to go out to the fields with Celestino to check on the cows and horses. Overall a great experience and I highly recommend if you are looking to get away for a little bit.

    Tlacolula de Matamoros, OAX, Mexico

    A spacious minimalistic apartment that offers a large en suite bathroom with large shower and bath tub; there is also a kitchen area with fridge, oven, and kitchen essentials. The apartment also has a small balcony, king size bed and living and dining areas. The apartment sleeps two people. Downstairs there is sleeping for a further 9 people with a luxury shared bathroom. Access is via a shared living area and terrace. Ideal for people travelling with large families or groups.
    English and Spanish are spoken by the host, as well as some very broken French, and he is more than happy to answer any questions you may have.
    The house is surrounded by mountains on both sides and is located in the quiet village of Lachigolo, a rural farming village where you can still hear Zapotec spoken. Although El Tule (claimed to be home of the Empanada) and Tlacolula (Famous for its Barbacoa) are both close, there are several small eateries in Lachigolo itself, many of which sell hand-made tortillas. Just a 3 minute drive away (10 minutes walking), there is a large open air swimming pool that is open daily from 9:00 – 18:00.
  • The house is very beautiful, quiet and quite large for a family trip. The spaces are comfortable, the cleaning and the kitchen excellent. John was aware of us and is very kind. Highly recommended, we will surely return.

    Pau2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • Seriously John is an amazing host! Was super nervous about the language barrier being here for the first time and he offered to come grab me from the airport, share some tips and show me where some good spots would be.. his place is exactly as all the reviews state. Super clean, spacious and central location. When I go back I will definitely be booking with John again!

    Julianna2020-01-07T00:00:00Z
  • The house is spacious for families or large groups, it is comfortable and very clean. We were very comfortable, it rests very well. It is 20 min from the center but it is a good starting point to go to nearby places and routes of interest, if you take a car it is good to get out of there. The neighborhood is not for walking, although it is very quiet because it is on the outskirts of Oaxaca.

    Lachlan2019-11-13T00:00:00Z
  • John has an amazing location. The apartment looks new and very clean. We were able to rest comfortable. We were a family of 5. The location has beautiful furniture and it’s very spacious.

  • Quality and confidence in the same place, recommended, is a good place to spend the night very quiet and good family atmosphere

    Roberto2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely stay here and the rooms were charming. Although this location is a bit further away from the town center (maybe 20 min walk), it is on the main road and close to other weaver families. It gives a great opportunity to walk in the valley and enjoy the beautiful scenery, and it’s easy to catch a moto-taxi for 15 pesos to and from town. They took great care to serve us a yummy breakfast, an extra 100 pesos per person which was well worth it. The rooms were clean and spacious. It does get a little noisy on the main road in the morning with cars passing and barking dogs, but just bring earplugs and you will be fine. The family is very kind, thoughtful and communicative. We had great talks with Victor and hope to return in the future!

    Suzanne2019-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • I loved the stay and the hospitality. The place is very beautiful and his family made us feel at home. The rooms are decorated with very nice details which makes the stay even more pleasant. Without a doubt, I will return and thank Victor, you and your family for everything.

    Tlacolula de Matamoros, Oaxaca, Mexico

    This is comfortable and spacious unit. Its walking distance from coffee shops, restaurants and the Sunday Plaza, the biggest market place in the region with food, fresh produce, textiles, pottery, furniture, traditional clothing. 40 minutes will take you to El Tule. 30 minutes will take you to Mitla. It’s located 45 minutes from the international airport, Hierve El Agua, Montel Alban, the main city and many other tourist places, including textile and pottery towns. It’s an excellent location!
    These newly built apartments will provide a comfortable stay and right now the rates are very low!!! The space is centrally located in Tlacolula, Oaxaca. It's walking stance to the Plaza and other attractions in the town. The unit provides a bed, sofa, it's own bathroom and window view to the street. The town is 30-45 mins away from Oaxaca City and 30-45 mins away from Mitla - the next big town over.
    The town is small/medium size. You can walk everywhere or take a 'moto-taxi' to your destinations within the town. There are lots of stores and restaurants nearby even located right underneath the apartments.
  • I've stayed in three of the hotels in Tlacolula-- and if you have been there, you know there aren't great option. This apartment is by far the best place to stay in Tlacolula that I know of. The location is great and easy to find. It is spacious and clean. The Wifi worked well. The first night we had an issue with the lights outside (being on and too bright) but the host resolved it by the next night. We also had an issue with some broken / missing things in the kitchen, which were also resolved right away. I highly recommend this place if you're looking to stay in Tlacolula!

    Brook2019-08-10T00:00:00Z
  • Great place. Right on the Sunday market street. 1 block from main bus stop. Next to a chocolate store. Tasteful place with art, nice furniture. Clean bathroom. Had a great stay.

    Rodrigo2018-12-13T00:00:00Z
  • Very attractive clean, and well equipped apartment right in the middle of town. This is a great place to see a small, non touristic, friendly, and authentic Mexican pueblo, and to visit the large market on a Sunday.

Our house is only 3 small blocks from the center of town. There is a Farmers Market every morning 8:30 to 11:00am which is a great place to get a traditional Zapotec breakfast. Get your favorite freshly made juice, buy some tamales made with native corn and local herbs, tamal de mole negro or tamal amarillo en hoja de milpa. There are several food stands where you can byu food to go or sit there and enjoy breakfast in the market. There are several restaurants and places to eat. From award winning restaurants where famous chefs have come to learn about Prehispanic foods to a small front shop restaurants run families. (Read more at the bottom). You'll be staying in our newest rooms specially conditioned to host airbnb guest. The room has large windows, ceiling fan and mosquito screens. We have a big house with a large patio where we keep some livestock (goats, sheep, horses, cows and free range chickens) you are welcome to help feeding them ;-) we are just happy to share our culture and meet people from all over the world, you'll get a chance to live the Zapotec culture, enjoy listening to our native language, going shopping to the local farmers market and joining many of the village festivals and traditions. Zapotec architecture is centered around the household activities, the house is huge and spread around a central patio. There is a separate room for everyone. You are welcome to use the kitchen, we will make a hot drink and offer sweet bread for breakfast. The bathroom (for some) is inconveniently located at the back of the house (blue room) so expect to walk around the patio a lot (good exercise). THINGS TO DO: As part of your stay we will show you how we make our rugs; we grind some cochineal to show you how we get different colours from the bugs, my mom is very good at spinning wool and very patient if you would like to try it, we even teach you the very basics of weaving on the looms if you are up for it. In one of the rooms we have a large gallery with a varied collection of rugs, bags, textiles and other small crafts that my family makes. Feel free to take as much time as you like to do your shopping while you stay with us ;-) You are welcome to join us at parties or festivals in the village if there are any during your stay. My aunts run a shop in front of the local market and every morning ladies meet for shots of Mezcal and other spirits before going to the market for grocery shopping; you are welcome to join in and learn about the many varieties of Mezcal and the way in which it can be drank for fun, healing or spiritual purposes. HIKING: There is a trail that goes to the sacred peak in front of my house (picacho) this is where legend has it that our ancestors first arrived to. The great spirit manifested itself in the great sky in the form of a huge beautiful bird accompanied by the seven pleyades. At the top of this mountain, the great spirit gave all the land that the eye could see to the Zapotec people for them to care and live. This why private property was and it is still not entirely part of the view of life in Zapotec communities. We recommend doing this hike early in the morning or in the afternoon, it takes 1 hour to reach the top on a steady phase. WORKSHOPS: Workshops are not included in the airbnb price, this are sold separately. We run them everyday when we have guests. NATURAL DYES. Learn how to dye using cochineal (Dactylopius Coccus) a bug that growns on nopal cacti and that changed the way Europeans saw color and did business in the 16th century. We would also dye with another local and seasonal plant to explain how to achieve color variation and fix the dye. All materials are provided and you get a skein of yarn of every color died. The workshop lasts around 4 hours and the next day we take out the died yarn. It costs 1,000 pesos per person. WEAVING. You get access to a warped loom and materials to weave your very own rug with our coaching. You get 6 hours of coaching per day and all the materials and tools you need to weave. Depending on your weaving skills and the pattern you would like to learn you can make a simple pattern rug in a day or a more detailed pattern in 3 days. The cost is $1200 pesos per day. $2000 pesos for two days or 2,800 pesos for three days. Message us for longer and more advanced weaving classes so we can discuss the details and make the arrangements. COOKING. Let us know if you would like to cook a prehispanic Zapotec dish with us. Cook mole from scratch, learn how to make hand made tortillas, sopa de guias (tender squash leaves soup), segueza (prehispanic mole), atole or champurrado. We will discuss the recipes according to the season and dietary requirements. The cost is 1000 pesos, all inclusive (ingredients and teaching). HORSEBACK RIDING. My brother Celestino could arrange horse riding sessions for one or more people to explore the country side, ride on the foothills, enjoy the landscape of agave fields or stop at the local damn where migratory birds arrive. You can tailor your ride according to your interest. 1 to 2 hours ride: $600 pesos per person. 2 to 4 hours ride: $1,000 pesos per person 4 to 6 hours ride: $2,000 pesos per person TEMAZCAL. We can also arrange the traditional Zapotec Temazcal with an experienced lady healer; she has been healing people for over 20 years and is well renowned in the area. The temazcal is a small adobe room which is layered with healing herbs and then steamed from the hot rocks on the fire pit. You entern the temazcal naked (optional) and lay down on the floor. The healer will use a bouquet of herbs and plants to bring the steam on your body, then you will start to get hot and to sweat. You tell her to stop any time and take a break inside or outside of the temazcal. You can go in and out as many times as it pleases you during the session. The idea is that when you crawl out of the Temazcal you are being born again, this time from the womb of mother earth. The family prepares a hot drink made with toasted corn kernels for you to drink after the experience. The temazcal session lasts up to two hours and it costs $350 pesos per person, payable up front. Check availability in advance. We accept credit cards for all your purchases during your stay. There are no ATMs in the village, the nearest one is 20 minutes drive away in Tlacolula or el Tule. Where to eat: If you go out of my house and walk two blocks you get to Av. Juarez where most of the restaurants are. Turn right and you will find Restaurant Guelaguetza, a medium sized family owned restaurant offering local dishes at affordable prices. Two blocks down on Av Juarez is Restaurant El Descanso, very clean and beautifully decorated, the food is tasty and the price range is medium. Once and a half blocks from el Descanso is Restaurant Tlamanalli, run by Abigail Mendoza and her sisters. Abigail has been traveling the world to promote Zapotec food and has hosted famous Chefs like Anthony Burdain, Tomasina Miers and Alejandro Ruiz. The food is well made respecting the traditional Zapotec tradition with no short cuts; abigail uses the Metate to grind all her ingredients. A three course meal with drinks would cost around $1000 pesos, no credit cards are accepted. El Jaguar is a nice and small restaurant down the road from Tlamanalli, it is run by my Cousing Isabel. Just like every other woman in town, she cooks very tasty traditional Zapotec food at affordable prices using local ingredients and ancient recipes. Right next door to Jaguar is Conchita, a small Comedor that serves typical Mexican "street food" and local dishes, she opens until late 10:00pm. Restaurant Tierra Antigua is another well decorated and nice restaurant of the medium scale serving Authentic and delicious Zapotec food at the entrance of town on Av Juarez.

Nice and not expensive at all. Conchita: typical and tasty Mexican food, not expensive at all. Tierra antigua: nice setting, good food and not too expensive.
  • I feel very fortunate that I was able to stay at Dixza Organic Farm for just short of a week. You can expect to be brought into the fold of this family on their working farm, where they share their home, food, stories, craft /art and History. I am richer for my time spent with them, and am looking forward to coming back again. Next time I will ride horses and get up into the mountains all the while speaking Spanish!

  • Doña Nora and Don Mario are a love. We feel so good. Thank you very very much

    Claudia2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • Samuel and his family are kind and welcoming people. Teotitlan is an incredible town. It's small and charming, and so neat. If you're looking for nights out, this is not your spot, but if you want a truly unique, relaxing experience getting to know an ancient village in a beautiful location, this is your kind of place. We were especially lucky to be there during Dia de Los Muertos, which was a magical time to see the town. The location is not ideal for getting to the city centre if that's what you're looking for, but it wasn't bad either. Took about 40 mins by car. (I recommend renting a car to get around!) But it was perfect for being right in between Monté Alban and Hierve el Agua (about 45 min-1hr to each). There's also beautiful scenery right in the farm's backyard. We didn't do any of the guided experiences at the farm, but I know Samuel set up a temezcal for others staying there, and one guest got lessons from Samuel's mother, Leonor, using the weaving loom. Thanks for everything to Samuel and his family!! It was an unforgettable experience:)

    Jonaki2019-11-04T00:00:00Z
  • It is a wonderful place to rest, get to know a little of the local activities and try mezcal. The food very rich, and the attention of the owners is exceptional.

    Eduardo2019-07-22T00:00:00Z
  • A truly unique opportunity to learn and dive into the culture of teotitlán. Samuel and his family are welcoming, loving, and full of helpful information. We loved it!

    Jenna2019-06-13T00:00:00Z
  • This was my second stay with Sam and his family and just like the first time, it was lovely. The rooms are comfy and cozy, the family and animals super friendly and it’s an excellent location to explore the town/area. This time I also took the dying and weaving workshops with Leneor which were super interesting and a lot of fun.

    Willo2019-05-14T00:00:00Z
  • I had an amazing experience staying at this home. The town itself is quaint and charming, and I had a great time wandering around, seeing local festivities, and even meeting a few people from the town. The space itself is great, the property is beautiful and even though they were doing some construction it didn't bother me at all. The room was cozy, the bed was comfortable with super soft sheets. As for the experiences they offer, I highly recommend taking a workshop for dyeing or weaving. Their mom, Leonor, is kind and patient and a great teacher. Not only did she help me make a wonderful keepsake, but we got to talk and share our lives a little bit (and practice Spanish!). I also got to talk to the other family members quite a bit, and I felt it was very special that I got to know them during my stay. I also really recommend taking the hike, the views were breathtaking!

    Sadie2019-04-21T00:00:00Z
  • My boyfriend and I stayed here for a couple of days and had a wonderful time! Samuel arranged for a local driver to pick us up from the Oaxaca City airport and when we arrived, we were given plenty of tips on where to eat and what to do in Teotilan. We did several activities at Samuel's place, including horseback riding, a traditional temezcal sweat lodge, and a mole cooking class, all of which were amazing! We look forward to our return!

Check availability in advance, we need 24 to 12 hrs advance notice for bookings. No refunds for cancellations done 8 hours in advance due to expenses incurred in prep work and gathering wild plants for the temazcal session. FARMING: If you are interested in native corn farming (milpa) make sure you ask us and bring a learning attitude. At home you won't see much of our farming practices, we only have a tractor and a pen with 28 goats in our family compound. We plant 8 hectares (about 20 acres)  of milpa in 5 plots of land distributed outside of the village. Everyone born in the community has the birthright to a piece of land to build their own home and grow their own food. All the land is in fact communal because the land was given to our community by the great spirit and has remained communal since the founding of our village. Every family has several pieces of land outside the village where they grow the milpa system (corn, beans and squash). We plant corn from mid June to mid July,  in a way that westerners call dry farming, we call it spiritual farming because when we plant corn according to the cloud and rain patterns we establish a direct connection with the heavens. In fact, our village festival takes place between the first and second wednesday of July. We gather to celebrate the planting of the corn and the Feather Dances perform an ancient Ghost Dance to pray for the much needed rain for our milpa, therefore when it rains the rain doesn't only feeds the corn but also our spirit. After planting the corn, we do some weeding around the end of August and after that there is not much happening. We can start gathering wild plants and edible parts of the pumpkin plant throughout the year, including grasshoppers and huitlacoche (corn smut). We harvest some time after day of the dead, in fact we celebrate day of the dead because the corn plant dyes when the rains stop at the end of October. The corn turns from greel to yellow and is left to dry in the fields for about a month . A guideed field trip to our milpa fields cost $250 pesos per person. Ask for availability when you check in. We also have a herd of 65 cows that we graze in the communal territories in the mountains and foothills of the Sierra Madre de Norte in summer and fall. We round up our cows down to the valley to graze in the cornfields during winter and spring. This year due to lack of rain we have been grazing our cows in the lowlands all year round. You are welcome to join a day of herding for $350 pesos per person 10am to 6 pm. We spend the whole day herding the cows in rotational way  around the communal pastures and our cornfields. Herding is a great way to slow down your phase of life and follow the herd while enjoying nature and having a pristine oportunity to observe the local flora and fauna in a peaceful setting. Bring your camera. In the morning we take our goats on a 3 hour adventure in the foothills of the sacred mountain, our two dogs (Botas and Pompis) join in with Dingo, our little australian cattle dog. Our goats know their little routine but we have to make sure they don't cause any trouble to the neighbors. This is an oportunity to apreciate how we have integrated small animals into our daily life to produce highquality meat for the family and the community. The experience costs $150 pesos. With all the work going on we have only a small home garden for growing vegetables, if you are interested in learning how to grow European vegetables we could point you to other permaculture farms in the area. There are several restaurants and places to eat. From award winning restaurants where famous chefs have come to learn about Prehispanic foods to a small front shop restaurants run families. (Read more at the bottom). We accept credit cards for all your purchases during your stay. There are no ATMs in the village, the nearest one is 20 minutes drive away in Tlacolula or el Tule. Where to eat: If you go out of my house and walk two blocks you get to Av. Juarez where most of the restaurants are. Turn right and you will find Restaurant Guelaguetza, a medium sized family owned restaurant offering local dishes at affordable prices. Two blocks down on Av Juarez is Restaurant El Descanso, very clean and beautifully decorated, the food is tasty and the price range is medium. Once and a half blocks from el Descanso is Restaurant Tlamanalli, run by Abigail Mendoza and her sisters. Abigail has been traveling the world to promote Zapotec food and has hosted famous Chefs like Anthony Burdain, Tomasina Miers and Alejandro Ruiz. The food is well made respecting the traditional Zapotec tradition with no short cuts; abigail uses the Metate to grind all her ingredients. A three course meal with drinks would cost around $1000 pesos, no credit cards are accepted. El Jaguar is a nice and small restaurant down the road from Tlamanalli, it is run by my Cousing Isabel. Just like every other woman in town, she cooks very tasty traditional Zapotec food at affordable prices using local ingredients and ancient recipes. Right next door to Jaguar is Conchita, a small Comedor that serves typical Mexican "street food" and local dishes, she opens until late 10:00pm. Restaurant Tierra Antigua is another well decorated and nice restaurant of the medium scale serving Authentic and delicious Zapotec food at the entrance of town on Av Juarez.

  • Our family (including 3 kids) had a great stay at Samuel’s place. We learned a lot about the weaving process and the stories behind the patterns in the weaving. Everyone was so welcoming and relaxed and the space was clean and very comfortable. Highly recommended as a place to stay and would love to return for a class some day.

  • Authentic experience with a happy and caring family. Come as a guest, leave as family. I took a dying and weaving class. it was such a special gift to learn this ancestral skill and the meanings behind the patterns. Beds are comfortable, rooms/bathrooms are simple and clean.

  • This was a great stay, I ended up extending another night. Leonora is a such a ray of sunshine and although I don’t speak Spanish well, we were able to get on great. This is a working farm so you will wake up early to the sounds of animals and work being done. The bathroom is also at the end of the structure so you will have to throw on some shoes to get down there. There is nowhere to hang your clothes so I ended up laying mine out on the extra bed and it was fine. There is a ceiling fan and mosquito netting on the windows. I never used the kitchen as there were plenty of very, very inexpensive food options close by and Cafe Vid has a nice cappuccino, the market was about 3 blocks down, a convenience store 2 blocks down. I took one of her weaving classes and made a nice little 24”w x 19”l piece made over a 2 day period. You will pay for the first day of full hands on instruction and then the next day for supplies, you go through a lot of wool but its worth it. I would really say give yourself 3 days for a really nice piece and think out your design ahead of time. For the future, they are also constructing a new 3 bedroom facility with a bathroom inside as well as a more modern kitchen that is due to ready in about 4 months. Some tips: bring bug spray and shower flip flops.

  • -Life is beautiful -that is only one sentence I can explain about this family . The beauty of life are surrounding me since I woke up in the morning till time to close my eyes again at night. Sitting ,talking eating and big laughing in the huge kitchen of samuel's family are the best unforgettable memorial and if you are lucky enough you would have a chance to try Mexican -Thai fried rice , cooked by samuel. The best! .. Do not miss to ask mama to bring you to the temazcal. It will bring you back to realize what the meaning of simply human being is. Everybody have our own secret 's space or moment in the village or the cities that we had visited. Me too! 'Tiotitlan is magical' but i'm Not gonna tell you my secret corner. Please find it yourself.! Staying at samuel 's place You will get much more than what u expect soecially if you have to traveller 's soul!. Wifi is the best. 5 mins walking to the local market . Close to the good cafe . Nearby the really nice homemade food restaurant. Enjoy your stay .

  • I have completely fallen in love with Dixza farm and the family. I’ve never experienced such a special air bnb stay before - the prior communication was excellent and my welcome was heart warming and very enjoyable. I even loved it so much that I extended my stay for an extra week! The town is very idyllic, surrounded by the beautiful mountains. The morning market is great for fresh, organic food and drink supplies. The local people are warm, friendly and impressively hard working. There are many walks and activities within the area, I would especially recommend the natural dyeing and weaving workshops with Leonar and Mario to get an authentic understanding of the traditional craft and lifestyle of Teotitlan Del Valle. Another highlight was exploring the countryside by horseback with Celestino in the beautiful light of both early morning and sunset. On sundays there is an epic local market in the neighbouring town tlacolula. Be prepared with your budget - the Zapotec rugs are a worthy investment and very well priced considering the skill and labour it takes to create them. A truly authentic experience, full of laughter, life and strong connection to nature. I will be back for sure!!

  • The hosts are incredibly nice and welcoming, the room was very clean and comfortable, and the location is great (especially if you're trying to do some hiking in the area).

  • Visiting this traditional Benizaa (Zapotec) family of weavers, the first impression of of the beautiful culture of these beautiful people is instantly seen and felt. Teotitlán del Valle is an amazing place - ancient and Majestic. Traditional Hand died wool, is all over the place and delightful to see, and the looms are beautiful works of are in and of themselves. Leonora (mom), Mario (dad), Samuel and Celestino are truly SuperHosts in every way! The place is definitely a working and active space and the activity and all the animals add to the realness and comfort of this Home. I will definitely be back! - Cheers!
