At Hacienda Los Laureles in Oaxaca, you'll experience what life must have been like in colonial Mexico. This 18th-century hacienda boasts all the elements you'd associate with traditional Mexican design: stucco walls, terra cotta floors, ornate wrought-iron furniture, and colorful Mexican fabrics.
The 23 rooms in this intimate boutique hotel lead on to a connected terrace that looks out over a lush central garden and the surrounding mountains.
After a busy day exploring Oaxaca, return to the tranquil environment of Hacienda Los Laureles. Take a dip in the pool and then savor a meal in the hotel's dining room which prepares traditional Oaxacan dishes and fine international cuisine with an emphasis on fresh, local ingredients. The friendly staff can even arrange for you to enjoy a romantic candle-lit dinner in the garden under the stars.
The hotel offers guided eco-tours to the local mountains, full spa services, and will arrange for horseback riding excursions.
