Hacienda Los Laureles just outside of Oaxaca is a traditional hotel surrounded by gardens and greenery.
For those who prefer to be surrounded by greenery and bird-song than the sounds of urban life, Hacienda los Laureles, located just outside of the city center of Oaxaca is the perfect option. The hotel is set among gardens with tall, exotic flowers and banana trees and is home to a great variety of birds and squirrels.
The rooms are traditionally furnished, some containing original features from the 18th century hacienda and others boasting cozy, working fires that can be lit in the chillier months. The idea is that the guests feel like they are visiting a family home.
The hotel has a swimming pool and small spa as well as a traditional Mesoamerican sweat lodge called a temazcal, with a local shaman who comes to the hotel to lead the temazcal ceremony.
Quality Mexican and international food is served at the restaurant from breakfast through to dinner, so you could easily never leave the hotel. If you do take a walk out locally, the area in which the hotel is located is picturesque, with cobbled stone streets and a few local shops.
Take a second floor room so that you can leave your windows open to enjoy the birdsong while retaining privacy.
