Host families, experience living with an Oaxacan family

Oaxaca International invites you to experience living with a familia oaxaqueña. We think that students should not only benefit from the additional practice that they get from living with a local family, but they also make new friends and feel like they are at home here in Oaxaca.

The families we recommend are selected for their hospitality, experience, and their warm affection toward their boarders. All of the host families offer different, yet similar living situations: rooms, meals, and meeting the special needs of students.

For example, if you are a vegetarian, we have the correct family for you. If you prefer to be the only student in the house, that is also possible. On our course Registration form students can fill in their special requirements and in this way we can select a suitable family to fit your needs. Our families use the highest quality ingredients.


A private bedroom a day with breakfast included $410 Mexican pesos per person * A private bedroom a day with breakfast and comida ( the largest meal ) $510 Mexican pesos per person * Ask for cost for two people in the same private bedroom with meals and also for three or more people .


Staying with host families is only for students taking classes with us.

Finally, we can help you find a student hotel, apartment, or will be happy to offer suggestions for traditional tourist hotels.
