Playa de Mazunte


The Posada del Arquitecto it is situated on a hill, at the midway point along the beach in Mazunte, just a few meters from the sand. You can enjoy marvelous views of the Bay of Mazunte from different angles and heights, always within earshot of the ocean.

The Posada del Arquitecto is an alternative space, created by travelers for travelers. Our goal is for you to spend your time with us in contact with – immersed in – this natural coastal paradise, while enjoying the friendly, relaxed atmosphere.

We do our best to respect the environment we call home, by integrating the region’s native, natural elements into the construction of the cabañas, allowing you to interact with the local flora and fauna. We request that you be considerate and respectful of these living things.


El mar y su energía te esperan!


Detalles que hacen la diferencia


From our hanging beds to our recently remodeled rooms and cabañas, our rustic, artisan-inspired accommodation offers multiple comfortable options to accommodate every budget.

Open your eyes. The Pacific stretches out before you. Every morning the sun rises over the ocean, greeting you as it welcomes a new day. Enjoy a breakfast of a cappuccino and a croissant at the Café de la Terraza. Just a few steps away, Mazunte´s blue bay and golden sands await.



We offer multiple options to accommodate every budget. Our suites, rooms and cabañas were conceived as fluid spaces, open to the natural environment. Each is designed to incorporate practicality, minimalism and comfort. While you won’t find services such as air conditioning or hot water in every room (at least not at this time), you will enjoy ample space to relax while taking in the view of the ocean or mountains, soothed by the sound of birds and waves.



  • Café
    The Terraza del Arquitecto, where you can have breakfast or lunch, serves the best espresso on the beach. Its location in Rinconcito is ideal and includes a sun-bathing deck just a few meters from the waves. It is the perfect spot to meet fellow travelers, read, surf (the internet), or relax in the ocean breeze. Make your selection from the menu and place your order at the bar.
  • Masage
    Information is available about massage services and staff can assist with making reservations.
  • Parking
    The entrance to the parking lot is on La Barrita road, on the north side of the Posada. The gate is generally closed. You will need to notify the Reception desk that you plan to park, and that is where the key is kept. There are 10 parking spaces, reserved exclusively for guests. There is no security guard assigned to the parking lot, and the Posada del Arquitecto cannot be held responsible for theft or damage to vehicles or vehicle contents.

  • Environmental Sustainability
    At the Posada we have solar panels generating electricity, and our biodigesters and natural filters allow us to reuse gray water for irrigating our plants.


The Posada is located on the Pacific Coast, in the State of Oaxaca, Mexico. It is in a pueblo called Mazunte, and it occupies the hill that separates Playa Rinconcito from Playa Grande, right above the ocean. When you reach the pueblo from the main highway, you will take the road that goes to Playa Rinconcito for about 400 meters. You will find the entrance to the Posada at the end of this road, just as you reach the beach.

To reach Mazunte by car (or suburban) from Oaxaca you will go through Pochutla. From Pochutla, continue another half-hour by car first west and then south at the Oxxo in San Antonio. Public transportation is also available. If you are driving from Puerto Escondido or Huatulco, you will head south at the Oxxo in San Antonio (about 12 km west of Pochutla).

To reach Mazunte by plane, you have two options. We are located about halfway between the HUATULCO airport and the PUERTO ESCONDIDO airport. There are different airlines (Aeroméxico, Interjet, Volaris, TAR, etc.) with flights from Mexico City, Oaxaca, Monterrey, as well as some international flights. It is approximately a one-hour trip by taxi from either airport, or there are passenger buses that stop on the highway.

The Posada’s oceanfront location is a big draw, but the property also happens to be surrounded by one of Mazunte’s most interesting neighborhoods: Playa Rinconcito, with some of Mazunte’s best dining: Alessandro (gourmet Italian cuisine, on the premises), Sushido (sushi cuisine, on the premises), Simone’s classic Italian pizzeria across the street from the Posada (the modest sign just says “Pizzería”), excellent French restaurants, Sahuaro (Mexican/Asian cuisine), etc.

The trail that leads to Punta Cometa from the beach starts about 200 meters from the Posada. And if you head toward the highway there is a road about 300 meters from the Posada that will take you to Playa Mermejita. It is about a 10-minute walk.  

In the Playa, a few meters from the Posada, you can find boat tours to see turtles, dolphins and whales, and other excursions to visit local attractions.
