Casa Raab is a 40 acre nature preserve in the foothills, just north of the city of Oaxaca. The landscape includes 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 in La Casita at Casa Raab usually includes visits to traditional markets, ancient ruins, handicraft villages, art galleries, museums and the city of Oaxaca. From individual travelers to small families and groups, La Casita is a great little house that will serve you well.
What To Do?: Visit archaeological ruins, handicraft villages, world famous markets, museums, churches, 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 to Pacific beaches.
Day-Trip Tours & most other transportation services can be arranged with us. We use a 15 passenger air conditioned van. Tours include handicraft village shopping for black pottery, woven tapestries, embroidered cottons & carved wooden animals. Multi-day tours are available for the more adventurous.

How About Fishing?: There is great rainbow trout fishing in a remote trout farm pond. Too easy perhaps, but when conditions are right you can land four pounders. Excellent for bringing home a cooler full for the barbecue. Casa Raab has all the gear.
There is also fly fishing for wild golden trout in a mountain river. Deep sea fishing can be arranged at the Pacific.
