Paraiso de los Angeles – Gay friendly Oaxaca Vacation Rental

Author: , May 13th, 2019

Paraiso de los Angeles

El Paraiso de Los Angeles sits on Mexico’s southern Pacific coast, in the state of Oaxaca. We offer a taste of the real Mexico, far from crowded tourist destinations, near the fishing village of Puerto Angel and the mythic sites of Zipolite and Mazunte. El Paraiso de los Angeles is the location of the film “A thing of Beauty”, a Jake Jaxson production (Cockyboys)

Our Oaxacan oceanside villas offer a stunning combination of modern beach holiday and immersion with nature: you’ll hear the waves crashing against the shore from your villa, and see dolphins and whales jumping in the sea at the right time of year.

We offer three Mexican vacation rental villas facing the sea, along with a swimming pool and a magnificent, front-row view of the shimmering Pacific Ocean. Our Oaxaca vacation rental villas face south, allowing guests to watch the sun to rise and set (winter time) daily.

The nearest airports are Huatulco (40 kilometers) or Puerto Escondido (70 kilometers).

Agua Azul – Oaxaca Gay Friendly Bed & Breakfast

Author: , December 23rd, 2017

Agua Azul

In 1999 we left Canada to begin a simpler life as “innkeepers” in a tropical climate. After five months exploring Mexico’s Pacific Coast, we discovered the perfect location in a place that no one can pronounce – Huatulco, Oaxaca (Wha-TOOL-co, Wha-HA-ca).

This is a relatively new eco-resort, consisting of 9 pristine bays and 36 beaches, with modern infrastructure, such as paved palm line streets.

With our six pages of criteria, the architect gave us a brilliant design in the “Mexican Pacific Coast Style”. This movement strives to integrate architecture with nature, using natural materials such a stone, clay, wood, palapa, and water.

We wanted each guestroom to have privacy, and with a hillside property, this was achieved by placing each room on its own level. The guestrooms are decorated with handmade tile, pottery and textiles,along with an eclectic selection of original art.

People come here to enjoy the perfect Huatulco climate, so the outdoor space is as important as the interior one. Each guestroom has a spacious ocean view terraza with palapa cover, hammock and other seating.

The Pacific coast is not known for its sunrises, but overlooking an inlet, we enjoy spectacular sunrises over Conejos bay each morning – with the added advantage of the terrazas being shaded from the more aggressive afternoon sun. Aside from the view of Tejoncito cove, my favorite element of the villa is the water feature, with five huge stepping stones that form our entrance.

A few years ago we were fortunate to be included in a piece on CNN.com Mexico’s 10 Best Seaside Hideaways.

We serve a healthy breakfast in “barefoot elegance”, under a 30 foot domed palapa. This consists of several fresh tropical fruits, bread, “pan dulces”, home made scones or muffins, granola with milk and yogurt, fresh squeezed juice and coffee or tea. Rick and I operate a B&B because we like meeting a diversity of people, and during breakfast, we enjoy lively conversations with our guests. Of course, we understand not everyone is a morning person, and respect your wish to be left on your own if that is your preference.

We are only a 10 minute taxi ride from the town center, but if you don’t feel like moving, we have an arrangement with several restaurants to deliver for a small fee.

We highly recommend renting a “panga” to discover several of Huatulco’s virgin beaches, but it is not entirely necessary. There is a beautiful virgin beach about a 10 minute walk from Agua Azul la Villa, over a hill and through a path in the forest. In spite of the fact that we are in a developed upscale residential neighborhood, there is rarely another soul on this beach. If you are really fortunate, you may see turtle tracks and the nests where they have laid their eggs. To help make this a perfect experience, we have umbrellas to take to this beach, and can even supply a cooler for a picnic.

If you’re looking for a perfect oceanside paradise, come stay with us at Agua Azul B&B!

El Paraiso de Los Angeles is a gay friendly Oaxaca vacation rental that sits on Mexico’s southern Pacific coast. We offer a taste of the real Mexico, far from crowded tourist destinations, near the fishing village of Puerto Angel and the mythic sites of Zipolite and Mazunte. El Paraiso de los Angeles is the location of the film “A thing of Beauty”, a Jake Jaxson production (Cockyboys)

Our Oaxacan oceanside villas offer a stunning combination of modern beach holiday and immersion with nature: you’ll hear the waves crashing against the shore from your villa, and see dolphins and whales jumping in the sea at the right time of year.

We offer three Mexican vacation rental villas facing the sea, along with a swimming pool and a magnificent, front-row view of the shimmering Pacific Ocean. Our Oaxaca vacation rental villas face south, allowing guests to watch the sun to rise and set (winter time) daily.

The nearest airports are Huatulco (40 kilometers) or Puerto Escondido (70 kilometers).

Our first villa is La Villa Roja, a fully equipped home perched on the top of a small peninsula, with three-quarter ocean views – the bay of Puerto Angel on the left and the wide-open Pacific Ocean on the right. The villa’s living room and open kitchen are flanked by two terraces, one on each side of the house. The sofa can be made into two individual beds for extra guests, and can also be joined to form on king-sized unit.

The master bedroom is round, surrounded by a balcony and five French doors, with its own king-sized bed. The shower of the adjoining bathroom has a full ocean view.

La Villa Roja also has a roof terrace that is best enjoyed in the evening, especially at sunset. The house is fully equipped: refrigerator and freezer, oven-stove unit, microwave with grill, coffeemaker, blender, large safe for laptops, and even speakers for MP3 players.

Villas Azul and Amarilla are two adjoined but fully-independent apartments.

The main, upstairs rooms of each apartment open onto large balconies that face the sea. Each villa also includes a king-size bed and sofa for a third person. The lower floors include private fully-equipped kitchens and bathrooms that also have windows overlooking the sea and the pool.

The large roof offers a shared terrace, and is also at its best in the evening, especially during sunset. Equipment: refrigerator, freezer, induction stove-top, microwave with grill, coffeemaker, blender, safe, speakers for MP3 players.

Capacity: 3 people per apartment maximum. Clothing optional.

Zipolite, Mexico – A Town Lost in Time

Author: , March 25th, 2013

Looking for a piece of the “real” Mexico? Check out Zipolite, in Oaxaca on the Pacific Ocean. Edge Boston has the details:

A sleepy town with one main street and no ATMs, Zipolite (pronounced ZEE-poe-LEE-tay) is one of many tiny coastal pueblos that dot the Pacific in Mexico’s Southern state of Oaxaca. Stretching from Puerto Escondido to Huatulco, the region is sometimes called the Oaxaca Riviera. The hippie crowd discovered Zipolite in the 1960s and since then it has slowly evolved into an offbeat tourist spot popular with a certain type of visitor. Its pristine beach stretches two kilometers (1.2 miles) between two high cliffs at either end, and the crowd is fairly evenly split between middle-class Mexicans and free-wheeling liberals from across the globe. Old hippies, young adventure-seekers, and locals all mingle with a flower-child type harmony.

Sounds like paradise. Do cell phones work there?
