Originally the Dominican Santa Catalina convent built in 1576, a beautifully preserved baroque jewel of the past and now a simply stunning heritage hotel positioned in the heart of the city’s historic quarter, Oaxaca Camino Real is one of the most enchanting places to stay in all of Mexico.
With 91 comfortable rooms, which is a sizeable hotel both for its position and being a landmark, all have been kept to a simple style of restrained elegance. The hotel itself is a real joy to explore and walk around, with its courtyard gardens, graceful swimming pool, pretty patios and arched terraces. Breakfast, lunch, dinner or a cocktail within these tranquil, cloistered walls is a real treat, as is the traditional Guelaguetza (dance) it holds every Friday night in the chapel with live music, local food and regional art.
