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.

Hierve El Agua
It's supposed to be petrified waterfall, but once you're there, you cannot see much of the waterfall itself unless you take a short guided tour. The side you're mainly on are three naturally created basins with slightly salty water. The water is cold, but swimmeable. It's not always clean, though.

... my aid and helped get me to my feet. I survived with just a few scrapes and bruises, but learned an important lesson -- when walking in Oaxaca, look down!)
Let's start with some examples of broken sidewalks. Although these are ugly to look at, they aren't much of a menace -- one isn't so likely to trip over ...
