"After searching numerous places to stay in Oaxaca we found this awesome jem. The location was perfect, very quiet and close to a variety of restaurants and parks. The host was most helpful checking in on us daily. He gave us a map and reviewed various points of interest, restaurants, parks and market locations."
“Quiet but still in the city center so there's plenty of great food and shopping and places to walk nearby. The owners are awesome. The apartment is clean and comfortable. Highly recommended.”
“We loved our stay at Alma de Mi Tierra B&B! Beautiful location in a stellar neighborhood--Jalatlaca--just a few blocks from Centro and full of stunning murals and places to eat just north of the house. William and Nora, our hosts, were very present and helpful whenever needed. We hired Nora to be our guide 3 times and she is remarkable and so knowledgeable. Our city/centro history tour was a great start to our stay. And our trip to Tlacolula's Sunday Market Day was lots of fun too. Don't miss one of her cooking classes. She is experienced and the meal will be wonderful. We want to come back again and again and we feel so blessed that we chose this place to stay. I can't imagine a better experience.”
