The cottages are very basic but clean. Don't expect much and you won't be disappointed. Common area is a pleasant place to lay hang in hammock and wait through the midday heat. Location is ok, close to the beach, around 1,5km from both Punta Zicatela to the south and Playa Zicatela to the north. Great vegan/vegetarian food is served, affordable...

While visiting PE, we ate at the Osa Mariposa twice. There was one vegetarian, one vegan and 5 omnivores among our group. No matter our preferred diet, we all loved the food and drink here! Big hearty helpings of fresh foods at great prices; what more can you want? While our Spanish is less than stellar, the servers were kind...

We rented a three bedroom cottage, the hostel is located close to the beach with a very beachy and great atmosphere. We really enjoyed staying there, the breakfast was amazing (try to hot cakes) and we also ate the vegetarian dinner during night which was amazing. The place is super chill and you feel like home right away!

Chill little hotelito with small bungalows available. Food is really good, and is what attracted us to the place. A good alternative to the local Mexican food, which sometimes isn't cooked with the most healthy ingredients (i.e. manteca) :) Beach is closeby, but not so safe for swimming, but perfect for surfing as La Punta is closeby, which is one...

This place is great if you are a stoner surfer, but that's about it. Yes, it's hot and there are tons of bugs, but that's to be expected within the price range and location. The food is good and the common space is cute. My problem lies in the service. I found most of the staff unhelpful and cold. When...

I booked 4 nights and in the end I spent over two weeks at Osa Mariposa. I enjoyed every single second there! The staff is super nice, the food is AMAZING and the peaceful vibe with the garden, hammocks and cats is just perfect to relax!

Puerto Escondido is a must do for everyone. For the chiller, surfer, soul searcher it is a second home. The place is full of relaxed people spreading super chilled vibes. I was only there for a weekend for a break from the city, but I am definitely going to return. La Punta is full of wicked fun little hostels and...

Really enjoyed our stay, the room was small, but nice. Staff very helpfull and the ambience nice. Dinners are made by heart and a great way to meet people. The localization is a bit tricky, as its far from the center of playa zicatela and a 20 minutes walk from punta zicatela.

I had booked one night in Osa Mariposa in advance but ended up staying 4 nights there. Very friendly staff that helped me out a lot with tips for restaurants, beaches and other things to do, like yoga. Simple and nice vegan food. Very simple rooms, with fan and shared bathroom. Very hot and humid during the rainy season (I...

Osa Mariposa is a small boutique hotel on Oaxaca's Emerald Coast. We are located in the Brisas de Zicatela neighborhood of Puerto Escondido right between the two best surf breaks in a quiet community made up of sandy streets and smiling faces. We rent rustic beach bungalows surrounded by a lush and colorful tropical garden. Plenty of hammocks, books, breeze and great food. Check our schedule for live music, karaoke, cinema and other events. We can direct you to yoga or surf classes, tours, travel information and more! ... more   less
