- Homestay - Staying with a local family is an excellent way to fully immerse in Mexican culture and practice your Spanish.
- Apartment rental - If you prefer an independent housing, we can assist you in finding a suitable apartment in Oaxaca. The classifieds section of The Oaxaca Times is an excellent resource for short-term and long-term apartment listings to suit all budgets. www.oaxacatimes.com
