Oaxaca Booked

It was a lazy day of playing on the computer, watching TV and planning our trip to Oaxaca. It is almost 600 KM to drive so we decided to leave the motorhome here where it is safe and sound with Humberto, take the "shiny newly painted" Honda and stay in a hotel. A search on the Internet found that hotels in Oaxaca are quite expensive, averaging $100 US per night on and some of the other booking sites. I remembered that Bill and Dorothy Bell had stayed in a very reasonably priced apartment there a few months ago so I emailed them and got the information. These apartments are close to the Centro Zocala and although not huge, are certainly big enough for us. The price is the real drawing feature though with fully furnished apartments starting at 1750 pesos a week or about $20 per night. We booked one for a week and even if we leave before the full week is up, it is still a great deal.

You can find them here:


  1. Of course hotels in Oaxaca city are quite expensive on ""...but they are quite common at 250 pesos per night if you are looking for a reasonable price.

  2. "although not huge, are certainly big enough for us"

    Probably the most hilarious thing an RVer as ever written.

    Enjoy your trip!

  3. Nice alternative Croft. One fifth of the cost sounds very reasonable and the apartments do look quite nice. I'm sure you will enjoy your time there.
