Welcome to QUINTA AZUL
Tlalixtac, Oaxaca, Mexico
You will find Quinta Azul in the small village of Tlalixtac de Cabrera, along the highway to the east which takes you to the famous Tule Tree, and along the archaeological zone route to Yagul and Mitla, recently declared CULTURAL HERITAGE OF HUMANITY sites. Tlalixtac de Cabrera is named after the illustrious 17th Century painter, Miguel Cabrera. At an altitude of 1580 meters (approx. 1 mile) above sea level we enjoy temperate weather all year long.
Our privileged location allows us to enjoy the tranquility of the countryside with the comforts and technologies of the city. Quinta Azul has over 7000 square meters of gardens, trees, grass, and flowers in an ecologically sound compound. We have purified, drinkable water throughout the house. All household water is recycled to water plants & grass, we have our own small water treatment facility. We also recycle and compost all household waste. And all just 10 kilometers to Oaxaca's Historic Center.
Quinta Azul is the ideal space to relax and rest the body, soul and spirit, perfect to share with family and friends, surrounded by vegetation, endemic birds, incomparable 360 views, silence, blue skies, and no city lights to detract from the moonlight & starry nights - a truly pleasant experience. We organize events on our grounds, making Quinta Azul the fantasy location for your family reunion, wedding or other special occasion.

The experience at Quinta Azul is like no other. You really must see it to appreciate it. The swimming pool is heated all year, and the grounds invite you to sit under the palapa and relax with a cold beer and/or a good book. We also have a rooftop terrace where you can enjoy the views, eat your breakfast (included), sunbathe, listen to music (we have ipod dock), doze in the hammock, connect your laptop or just sit and listen to the birds, not traffic.
And, that's not all. Quinta Azul also provides a track around the grounds so you can exercise while breathing clean, fresh air. But perhaps one of the best perks is that Quinta Azul is pet friendly! We have a kennel with extra large doghouse with lights, and a bathing station for your dog! Your pet will have as good of a time as the family, running on the green grass and enjoying First Class Accommodations. Please click on our website for more pictures and information.
