Why Ricardo Cuevas chose Oaxaca

Jalatlaco is one of those places that continue to keep its charm almost secretly. Despite the apparent closeness to the historic center of Oaxaca City 10 minutes walk, anyone can wander the cobblestone streets of this small colony and immediately feel the calm that surrounds him. The secret of this calm is that most of its buildings are inhabited by villagers, only a few have been conditioned for guest house, hotel or restaurant. Inside the Barrio de Jalatlaco you can visit the Temple of San Matías Jalatlaco.

What makes this apartment unique

La casa Del Barrio is in a great location, everything is easily reached, historic downtown, markets, autobus terminal, you can walk to many places in a few minutes, or take a cab at $3 the single trip. La casa Del Barrio is a quiet place and peaceful, It is private all yours to enjoy. It’s a great place to enjoy Oaxaca and have all the conveniences like Wi-Fi Internet, Cable TV, full kitchen and everything to make your stay wonderful.

Lovely and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We had a terrific stay at Casa del Barrio. Ricardo met us when we arrived and was very helpful whenever we had an issue or a question. The apartment is beautiful, the beds and pillows were super comfortable (not always the case when we are traveling in Mexico), the bathrooms were clean and modern, the kitchen was small but met all of our needs. We especially appreciated the out door space. There is a small patio off the front bedroom and a larger patio off the back bedroom. We spent a lot of time out there. There was even a hammock, which came in very handy after a long day of walking through the town. There are some nice restaurants nearby , including a very good coffee shop and Parque Llano is a quick 10 minute walk away. Great market there on Saturdays. The only minor downside is dogs barking very early in the morning. If you are sensitive to noise, earplugs might be helpful. All in all, this was a great place to stay and we would happily stay there again on our next visit to Oaxaca.

great place for Oaxaca stay

  • 5 of 5

this is an ideal 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom apartment for visiting Oaxaca. it has all one can need, from great wireless, stocked kitchen, to a clean and nicely furnished space with plenty of room - even providing a 5 gallon water jug. quiet and safe neighborhood within walking distance of most sights around Oaxaca center. i stayed here for 8 days with a 5 year old. owners live on-site and are helpful when needed. i'd stay here again and recommend it.

Casa del Barrio was a treat to stay in and what a nice neighbourhood!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the privacy of our own apartment and the well equipped kitchen most of all. The beds are comfortable and the flannel sheets a treat for the cool nights. We would stay here again!

Great location, decent apartment

  • 4 of 5

If you like to walk, this apartment is in a terrific location: walking distance (within 10 blocks) of Santo Domingo church and the Alcala shopping street, lovely El Llano park (where there's always something going on), the Becari language school (if you want to brush up on your Spanish), and many restaurants. There's a cheap breakfast place at the end of the street, and some good local eateries (such as El Biche Pobre and Tipico) toward the park as well as behind La Merced markat. There's also a fantastic new playground near the baseball stadium, which our toddler adored.

Ricardo was very helpful, letting us check in early, keeping us stocked with jugs of drinking water, providing directions to the nearest laundromat, and arranging a taxi to our next destination. He lives on the top floor of the three-story house, so he's easy to get hold of if anything comes up.

The apartment met our needs, and the hammock was a great bonus. The only negatives are that the apartment feels smaller and darker than it looks in the pictures and isn't as clean as one might like. The cleaners (who came once during our stay) don't do a very good job: They leave hair and dirt on the floors, dust on the tables, and grime in the corners of the showers. That might not bother some people, but if you're a clean freak, this isn't the place for you. With residents above and below the apartment and other houses close by, the place can also get noisy. But in my experience, that's true anywhere in the city.

Authentic Oaxacan Neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

Perfect, affordable home for a short or long stay in a world class Mexican city. The apartment is charmingly decorated with all essential services, Internet, cable TV, well stocked kitchen, three bathroom/showers, patio/garden and secure parking. No need for a car as Casa del Barrio is within easy walking distance of "downtown," Zocalo, museums, health clinics, neighborhood restaurants and anything you want to do locally. Ricardo is gracious host, helpful with suggestions, answering questions in English and/or Spanish. He made my stay especially memorable by becoming a running partner, showing me various routes around the city and even registering me for a half-marathon. I will be back!
