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.

We would encourage anyone who is visiting Oaxaca to stay at the Hotel Casantica.

... you will see these are really artists. So for the last fifty years people have been coming form all over the world to see the radishes. I do have to say that when I read about this before we came I really had no idea what to expect and it blew away all expectations. Diego wanted to know where there was a noche de los rabonos in the states, I told him Paonia would be a great place to start a tradition that only exists in Oaxaca so far!
... whatever hour it feels like, anyway.
Oh dear, the lights just turned off entirely for a few seconds. Maybe this saga isn't really over.
And now for the photos:
The sign says, in part, "Hey, thief: if we catch you, we're not gonna turn you in to the cops; we're gonna string you up."
Look carefully -- Elly's in this next one.
Gab: On 2 January we took a long bus ride down to Oaxaca, our first destination alone together after all the socializing with Marianna and Matias's wedding party in DF and the "rancho" in Michoacán. The drive was long and tiring so we were happy to find a clean and quiet youth hostel in the centre of Oaxaca once we arrived. After a hot shower we crossed the street to the closest Mexican restaurant. The place was a ...
