Recently my adult daughter and I stayed at Mis Recuerdos in the Mamey room which is charming and restful. The room has its own terrace that looks on to the lovely courtyard with its colorful flowers, tinkling fountain, and singing birds. Every morning we were met by the warm and friendly hostess, Conchita, at whose home we were guests. She and her helper, Rosita, welcomed us with friendly smiles and the best breakfast in Oaxaca, we are convinced: the freshest fruit, full-bodied coffee, delicious local pastries, and a splendid main course, each morning different. My two favorites were the mole tamale with hot choclate along side, traditional to Sunday morning, and another morning the squash blossom omelette with the blossom laid beautifully atop the eggs. Conchita is an artist of the kitchen.
In fact, everything about Mis Recuerdos is done with the utmost love and care, and an eye for beauty, which one can experience in the care of the family. Conchita and her helpers do all they can to meet your daily needs. William her son-in-law will answer questions and set up drivers, reservations, whatever, when he is at the home office each morning. Nora, one of Conchita's daughters, offers cooking classes, also recommended, and cultural tours. She is enthusiastic and highly knowledgeable. The morning I left in the taxi for an early flight, Conchita's husband, Senior Valencia, was waiting to see me off at 6:30 am.
This is the real thing, a real home where the Valencia's raised their children and then turned their home into a charming inn. You feel like a valued guest visiting long-lost family and that feels like a family made in heaven.
