... negro (with chocolate), mole almendrado (with almonds), mole coloradito (with red chilli peppers) and mole Amarillo (with yellow chilli peppers). Mole almendrado was my favourite! We headed to salsa bar and practised our moves which was super fun! But some of us wanted to go back to the hotel early boooo. Beer again in Ernesto's room and his random drunken ramblings :) Felt soooo sleepy after one beer, time for bed I believe! V and mini V (would have liked to salsa some ...

... legs made 90 degree angle, his left foot was 2 cm longer than his right. The guy then put a pad behind his back and one on his neck and got him to sit up straight. 5 minutes later it was all fixed. From what I could tell the guy was saying to the boy he was all off balance and muscles twisted etc. very cool to watch. By then it was time to board the bus. I lined up next to the two tourists. Intruding Celeste & Alana sisters from Mount Barker. Small world. Tell me about it. I found ...

Monte Alban, chocolate tamales and tlayduas

... back into the markets later on that night and found the food stall that had been recommended to us (regarding tlayudas). The German lady was right - these tlayudas (with chorizo) were amazing, and we had some other local fare (molotes and tacos), as recommended by the lady sitting next to us. All in all the meal was amazing, and only cost us $5 each! We ended the night full and satisfied, ready to catch our next six hour bus in the morning. Next stop, Puerto Escondido!

Yesterday there was a fancy dress competition in the main square and dozens of teenagers had dressed up like the Adams family! Must admit the costumes scared the **** out of me! I am off to see the festivities tonight in Oaxaca's municipal graveyard on the edge of town,I am not sure what to expect but will obviously state my reflections in my next ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Las Mariposas Oaxaca

    Nice hotel with terrific owner/hostess

    from

    while recently in oaxaca were fortunate to have stumbled on a comfortable and economic small hotel with the nicest most helpful owner one can imagine. maria terresa is the best combination of class, charm and good information we have found. for 40.00 u. s. one has a small attractive room in a convenient and safe area plus the pearl mesta of mexico. for thos too young to remember pearl she was considered the hostess with the mostest

    Wonderful Hotel

    from

    I spent two weeks at Las Mariposas while attending language school in Oaxaca. My stay was very comfortable, thanks to the welcoming owners and efficient staff. My room was spotless and well furnished. Breakfasts were wonderful - both the food and the conversations. I hope to return to Oaxaca for more Spanish classes and will definitely stay at Las Mariposas.

    Un hotel sympathique

    from

    le seul petit reproche que l'on peut faire à las Mariposas est qu'il est un tout petit peu éloigné du centre, environ 15 minutes à pieds. Pour le reste rien à dire, il est propre, confortable et sans aucun bruit. Les propriétaires parlent anglais et sont à la disposition du client.

    Great Value at a Friendly Hideaway

    from

    We stayed Las Mariposas Hotel and Studio/Apts.

    Nice rooms, helpful staff

    from

    We honeymooned in Oaxaca for Todos Santos (All Saints and Day of the Dead) and the Las Mariposas was excellent. The staff was wonderful with arranging cabs for some early morning trips to go bird watching and for the airport. They always had good advice.

    Great no-frills accomodations, safe, quiet and clean

    from

    The Las Mariposas hotel/apartment is clean, friendly, and safe. I stayed here for 10 days while attending a photo workshop. I always had hot water, my room was clean and the bed comfortable. Only six or so blocks to the main part of town, the hotel was quiet (at least my room was) and accessable. The staff is helpful, though not all of them are fluent in english.

    Charming B&B on quaint street

    from

    We found this small, charming hotel after getting weird vibes from some other places. Mme. Villareal and her office manager, Ms. Davila, were splendid to deal with, esp. considering they didn't speak English and I was armed only with phrasebook Spanish. Hotel is exactly as advertised, and more. Interior could not be more charming -- lush plantings, a beautiful fountain, many little details, nice ironwork -- I've posted pix on this site tho not with this review.

    Las Mariposas is more a home than a hotel

    from

    Las Mariposas is more a home than a hotel. Built like a small hacienda, one can emerge from a private room in the morning and take breakfast outdoors in relaxed comfort. The owner is always helpful with local matters and Spanish. We wanted to stay longer just to be at the hotel."

    Thanks again for your hospitality. We both enjoyed our stay and hope to return soon.

    A memorable stay at Las Mariposas

    from

    Last May, my mother and I travelled to Oaxaca Mexico for what we hoped would be a memorable stay in a region we knew little about and were looking forward to discovering. After reading up on various options we elected to make Las Mariposas Hotel our base for exploring the surrounding areas of this enchanting Mexican city. Right from the moment we called and spoke Teresa, the guesthouse owner, to to make our reservations, we knew we had made the right decision.

    Wonderful stay at Las Mariposas!

    from

    Las Mariposas is an absolutely charming small B&B! Quaint rooms surround an intimate courtyard, lush with plants & flowers. The traditional stone fountain in the center, complete with goldfish, softly fills the courtyard with the sound of water. A lovelier place to sit and read a book, I cannot think of. Each morning in the courtyard they served an excellent breakfast of fruit, pastries, cereal, yogurt and regional coffee with an undercurrent of chocolate. If mixing your own margarita in the late afternoon, the hosts shared ice from the open-air courtyard kitchen, and a laden lime tree grew in the interior courtyard. Guests were welcome to refill their water bottles anytime from the large water jugs in the kitchen. It's a casual, laid-back place where guests chatted with each other in the courtyard and the hosts were happy to share suggestions on where to go in Oaxaca (though their English was limited). If your tastes run to inexpensive places big on ambiance and low on pretensions, you'll feel right at home here. The rooms were nice and decorated with local style. There's no AC, but evenings in Oaxaca are quite comfortable and in the day you're mostly out exploring anyway. The courtyard was always comfortable, with shade and breeze. The beds were rather hard, seemingly the norm everywhere we went in Mexico, so consider your own need for plushness. Everything worked fine, was very clean, and there was plenty of hot water, etc. The location is great, an easy and enjoyable walk from everything in old Oaxaca City. We loved the museums of culture and contemporary art and our visits to nearby Mitla and Monte Alban. Chocolate row is astounding, and if you like the local arts & crafts, or mezcal, you're in for a bonanza. Many people come to Oaxaca to study spanish at one of the language schools, or to attend cooking school. Las Mariposas seems the perfect place for an extended stay. Several of the other guests were single American women spending two weeks studying Spanish -- Las Mariposas provided a secure and charming home away from home. We were there for half a week, and thoroughly enjoyed both Oaxaca City and Las Mariposas. Highly recommended; great bargain.
