Casa Raab is located on a 40 acre nature preserve in the foothills, just north of the city of Oaxaca. The landscape has lush creeks, cornfields, agave plantations, mineral springs, an onyx mine... and wonderful views of the valley below. Although secluded and in a ranch-like village setting, it is just 20 minutes to the heart of Oaxaca.
A stay at Casa Raab may include guided visits to traditional markets, ancient ruins, handicraft villages, mezcal stills, art galleries, museums and the city of Oaxaca. From individual travelers to medium size groups... from family reunions to weddings, workshop-seminars and retreats; Casa Raab and its staff can handle your every need.
What to Do?: Visit archaeological ruins, handicraft villages, world famous markets, museums, churches, galleries, mezcal distilleries and the lively zocalo (town square). Go for long walks through the villages or in the foothills, take an eco-adventure or a short flight/long drive to Pacific beaches.
