Hotel Review: Punta Placer, San Agustinillo

The first thing to note about Punta Placer is its incredible location within San Agustinillo. San Agustinillo is one of the smaller villages set along the Oaxacan coast and is a definite “get away from it all” kind of place. At times it seemed like I had the village all to myself. When I was...

Hotel Review: Hotel Arigalan, Mazunte, Oaxaca

Hotel Review: Hotel Arigalan, Mazunte, Oaxaca

Mazunte is a small-ish beach village on the Oaxacan coast (although it’s actually larger than I expected it to be) and is a common beach destination for people who want to escape the relative madness of Puerto Escondido.

Is it possible to be vegan in Mexico?

Is it possible to be vegan in Mexico?

Hands up, I am not a vegan myself, but for one reason or another, recently I got to thinking about how possible it would be to live with a vegan diet in Mexico. Of course, it’s not impossible to do so anywhere that you go, but it is certainly easier in some places than others....

Oaxaca Street Food: Part 4 - Tlayudas and Memelas

Oaxaca Street Food: Part 4 – Tlayudas and Memelas

Tlayudas are the quintessential Oaxacan street food, and a trip to Oaxaca would not be complete without tucking into one (or five, or ten). Memelas can be considered the younger siblings of tlayudas and are delicious too. So what is a tlyauda? A tlayuda is a massive thin corn tortilla with stuff on the top...
Instagramming Oaxaca

Instagramming Oaxaca

I have been living in Oaxaca since the beginning of June, and it’s been everything that I wanted it to be. I decided to move away from Mexico City, even though I love that city deeply too, because I wanted somewhere with a lower cost of living and also somewhere quieter so that I could...

Oaxaca Street Food: Part 3 – Tamales!

Part 3 of my Oaxaca street food series covers my absolute favourite Oaxacan food – tamales! You can get tamales all over Mexico, but Oaxaca is particular well known for them and the rest of Mexico can’t just compare. If you want the real thing, you have to head to Oaxaca. In fact, when I...

How to find an apartment in Oaxaca

I was beyond excited to move to Oaxaca earlier this year, but one thing was troubling me. Exactly how would I go about finding an apartment? I was so worried about being holed up in a hostel for weeks that I covered all bases and was able to find my dream studio apartment in just...
