    A charming downtown oasis, 40-year-old Casa Colonial – which claims to be Oaxaca's first bed and breakfast – feels like a friend's (large) house. There's a library with English books, unlimited purified water, caged birds, a fish pond, gardens that attract migratory birds (and birders) in February and March, monthly afternoon concerts on the lawn, WiFi service throughout the hotel and a kitchen that serves fresh, organic meals, including vegetarian options. It's right off the busy Division Oriente street, but lush trees and plants – including the largest agave I've ever seen – absorb much of the noise, and the jubilant crafts that decorate the property give guests a taste of Oaxaca's prized artistic culture. The rooms don't have TV or coffee makers, but the price includes coffee and tea all day in the dining room, as well as breakfast. One caveat: Colonial is seven blocks from the zocalo, or town square, putting it a bit off the main tourist stretch. Ask about special rates if you're staying longer than 10 days.

    This cute bed and breakfast, owned by a California native, has far more personality than your standard hotel. It feels like home, due in large part to the efforts made by the staff. The chef, Soledad, cooks organic meals out of ingredients she buys daily at local markets. The 15 rooms, including two larger suites, are clean and comfortable, but the entire property feels as inviting as the rooms. A library, complete with armchairs, features a wide selection of English-language books, mostly about Oaxaca and Mexico. One of the many outdoor seating areas has a refrigerator for guests, and monthly classic-rock concerts are held on the lawn at the center of the inn. Local artwork gives Casa Colonial a distinctly Oaxacan flavor, but an English-speaking staff member is available until 8 p.m.
