On the seaside of the Sierra Madre mystical mountain range, along the Emerald Coast of Mexico's great southern state of Oaxaca, lies the OSA MARIPOSA, a small complex of rustic cabins enveloped by an enchanting tropical garden. Blooming in the midst of a quiet neighborhood made up of sandy streets, fruit trees, small shops, and smiley faces, OSA MARIPOSA serves as an alternative oasis and refuge for experienced travelers or anyone who wishes to relax, eat well, make friends, and fall in love with the pacific beauty of Puerto Escondido.

Our visitors have commented on the OSA MARIPOSA as being a bohemian beach compound, an adult secret hideout, the best backyard ever, a nurturing and rehabilitation center, or an island of peace, shade, and vibrant color. We see the hotelito as a 'friend machine' that takes in raw materials from around the world (you, me) and processes them through a patchwork of plant life, board games, good food, and cold cocktails... finally spitting out new friendships (us).

We offer private cabins for couples, friends, or single travelers as well as shared dormitory options for backpackers, families, or groups. Our kitchen serves up highly acclaimed homemade vegetarian and vegan cuisine and our 'Six Shark' bar specializes in Oaxacan mezcal and mezcal-influenced cocktails.

The nucleus of OSA MARIPOSA is the communal patio where travelers can eat, play, sing, dance, read, or just relax. Hammocks are plentiful. Our library is stocked with board games and books available for loan or exchange. We can also arrange tours, classes, and group activities.

Puerto Escondido is known as one of the top 10 surf destinations in the world. Along with water sports and beautiful beaches, it has gained fame for its array of international nightlife hot spots, yoga studios, and community projects. Puerto Escondido and OSA MARIPOSA create the perfect home base for day trips to Mazunte, Chacahua, Zipolite, Puerto Angel, and other attractions such as lagoons, hot springs, and refreshing waterfalls.
