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.

After lunch, we decided to hike down to see the ...
... walking around town again taking pics. Its so nice to be able to explore. We forgot the map and so wandered up and down the cobbled streets in a random manner. There is a little rain after lunch but nothing like yesterday so we were able to enjoy a lot of Oaxaca.
In the afternoon we go to the supermarket to get snacks and necessities and explore the northern end of town. Lots of churches. Parks packed with locals hanging out, making out and eating from the local ...
... original and I would say that is the only bad part about this site. Some of the parts of the ruins were very nice and smooth. The rest were original and deteriorated. The whole site takes a couple hours to walk around. Most of the temples looked into the center courtyard towards an alter. The courtyard was quite massive and probably several football fields long. Each temple usually houses someone of royal descent. There are ...
... from Spain. So long with Mao the hostel owner & Su Yung a South Korean general surgeon who sold her house and quit her job after getting very sick I assume depressed post a complicated pregnancy ending in miscarriage and hysterectomy. So we all headed out to the local Cantina. Which was awesome. We all had a few beers. Then a parade came past celebrating a particular Saint. I am unsure which one. The kids were so cute. Su Yung was drinking ...
