TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel CasAntica Oaxaca
What can I say? The hotel is a beautiful old building in one of Oaxaca's unasuming streets. It is close to everything but is suprisingly quiet. Absolutely beautiful interiors and the staff are wonderful. They went out of their way to help with adapters, rechargers, tours and even wrapping up pottery we bought from the ruins. We would encourage anyone who is visiting Oaxaca to stay at the Hotel Casantica.

We mapped our journey across the East of Mexico based on a suggested route in the guide book. Oaxaca (pronounced Wahacca) was one of the recommended stops, a nice town with some interesting ruins and villages around it. Normally we're complete geeks about studying the guide books but the days were flying by and we were getting a bit travelled out so fell into a bad habit of reading the guidebook at the last minute and turning up in new ...
... I knew existed. Each mole (sauce) needs a particular set of chilis, and your grandmother will know and surely disapprove if you try to substitute one for another. Snacks are also abundant. Hand made ice cream, peanuts spiced with salt, garlic and chili pepper, and a regional speciality, chapulines -- roasted grasshoppers mixed with salt and garlic. We tried some. I wouldn't go out of my way for them if you asked me. The mercado is a ...
... too. Fascinating to think how much something like that can create your experience. I know that I still feel awkward with the closeness simply because I am not used to it. But on another level I relish its ability to break down unnecessary walls.
Everyday that the kids hold my hand as we walk down the street is precious. Their sweaty little paw in mine connecting the love, and safety. For so soon they will think they do not need the safety, and if ...
... br> As for Oaxaca, I am completely enchanted with the colors and textures of this city and the beautiful architecture that exudes a history I long to learn. Everyday, as we walk out our turquoise metal door onto the bustling street of Armenta y Lopez, past the "jugueria" (that is pumping juices out for the masses going to work and school), the street vendors selling tacos, bread or tamales, my eyes are drawn to the ...
Well, folks, we found warm weather today! High 90s! Almost wishing for that snow today :-)! The town of Hualtulco (wah-tool-co) is a small town only 28 years old, and it is quite different from Puerto Vallarta. Clean, quaint, and with only a handful of resorts, so far not terribly commercial. We took a 3 1/2 hour scenic bus drive to La Crucesita and stopped off for photo opps and a little bit of shopping. ...
