The 23 top Airbnb in Mexico in the top destinations

Airbnb in Mexico has become the most common accommodation for both long and short stays. You can now find spectacular homes with the finest decor and unique location to make you feel like in your home away from home, literally. In this post, I will share the best of the best Airbnb in Mexico’s most popular destinations.

Such a huge and diverse country, with the most amazing beaches, but also charming colonial cities, hidden waterfalls, incredible landscapes, barren canyons to lush tropical hills, Mexico has it all. And a lifetime is not enough to visit such an extensive territory, but I am trying.

After 10 years of living in Mexico and 1 year of exploring the country, I realized that staying in an Airbnb in Mexico is the most convenient way to live like a local, in a comfortable home with all the modern features and amenities, including a good wifi. The best part of staying in an Airbnb in Mexico is the human touch. As I am writing this post I am sitting in a cafe’ in Valle de Bravo after coming back from an amazing Quad tour with the mum of the owner of the Airbnb where I was staying.

She took me around her city for free just for the pleasure of showing me around and getting to know somebody interested in her country. That would not happen in a hotel.

I am not saying that these kinds of things happen every time you book an Airbnb but I can definitely share with you so many stories of incredible people I met during my Airbnb stays in Mexico, from the funny student in Xalapa to the owner’s cute dogs in Orizaba, the kindness of the owner in La Paz, Baja California, to name just a few.

In this post I want to help you find the best Airbnb in the top Mexican destinations for your perfect stay.

I have selected this home because it’s basically my dream home for when I get tired to be a nomad.

The location is also fantastic, in a nice tranquil neighborhood at walking distance from the charming historical center and yet far enough from the noise.

What the previous guests say:

What an absolute gem of a home. Right away, Raúl made me feel at peace in this excellently decorated penthouse. It seems Raúl considered every detail when designing this space; from the outdoor speakers, the windows all facing west (sunsets!) or the excellent outdoor areas. I had a blast here, and would come back in a heartbeat.

Raul’s place was perfect for our month-long stay for many reasons: *the kitchen was fully stocked which made cooking fun & easy. *location was close enough to cultural activities, sites, and markets, but just far enough removed from the zocalo. *design, decor, and view were big pluses and greatly enhanced our stay... 

What a wonderful penthouse apartment! The apartment is in a terrific neighborhood of Oaxaca (Jalatlaco), close to everything but in a quiet area near one of the city’s nicest parks. The neighborhood also has many small cafes, vendors, murals, community flavor, etc. The apartment itself is lovely with plenty of space for two or four people.


📍 Oaxaca · 2 guests · 1 bedroom · 1 bed · 1 bath ⭐⭐⭐ · 💲💲💲

Lovely Oaxacan-style home with raw cemented bathroom- stone walls and the finest linen. The minimal decor and modern design mixed with the old colonial feel gives a sense of space and elegance.

The location is also a plus as it’s at only three blocks from the pretty historical center. Ideal for a sigle traveler or a couple.

What the previous guests say:

The location is super central, everything important in Oaxaca is super close to Airbnb. The style is super beautiful, it totally speaks of Oaxaca, the impeccable cleaning much better than in the photos, the kindness of Doña Ana, and her beautiful house is incredible. I recommend it 100%.

We really loved the design of the room, very nice, the staff is very friendly and very attentive, it is worth staying more than one night.

The decoration is very original, it has everything you need and even a small kitchen with a refrigerator and even a chocomilera. It is 3 blocks from downtown and the staff is very friendly. There was only a problem with the hot water in the shower, out of nowhere it came out cold and then returned to hot. I would definitely return.

What Guests say about Design Loft Downtown

For the second time, I had a very pleasant stay in this beautiful space, perfect location for walking through the city center. I love cleanliness and the bed is exquisite to rest. Very good attention at all times. Thanks, I’ll be back!.

I rented two rooms for my family and me. The location is great for walking in historic Queretaro. The rooms were extremely clean. The view and porch from my room was very relaxing. The kitchenette had enough dishes (including blender and pots and pans) for quick meals but there are a ton of eateries and shops nearby. The host was amazing and very responsive”

What the previous guests say:

Incredible location, cozy, easy check-in, good decor, great host.

Everything about the apartment was fantastic. There was a loud neighbor but I understand that’s out of the host’s control.

Absolutely perfect. I rented the apartment for my mother who was visiting me for the week. She loved the place so much that she told me she would only use Airbnb from now on for future vacations. That is how terrific of an impression that was made on my (very hard to please) mother. As a resident of Mexico City, I can say that this apartment has it all: Location, amenities, cleanliness, convenience. The shower alone is terrific – having hot water and good water pressure can sometimes be a challenge here in the city. The shower here was amazing! it is in a very safe neighborhood and very close to public transit. Extremely clean with a very responsive host (Alberto). Best of all, an amazing value for the space, the location, and the quality of the apartment. I would DEFINITELY, 10x over, stay here again. Thank you, Alberto, and my mother and I will definitely return soon!

This was one of the best Airbnb’s we’ve ever been to! Super stylish and comfortable (amazing bedsheets) ! Laetitia was soo welcoming and responsive. The Airbnb is tucked away from the loudness of the main town but situated close enough to walk to all the restaurants and shops. So for me it was the perfect location. I would definitely recommend and the only problem I had was that I didn’t stay longer !.

This place was everything the pictures and write-up claimed and more!! Cooking and dining al fresco was sublime. The ocean is so close you can feel the waves breaking on the shore and access to the beach is moments away! Super comfortable bed and linens, which in my experience, are often under par. Moreover, Laetitia provides refrigerated drinking water in the room! So good! The daily room cleaning is a major bonus and her staff is super friendly. Bonus!! Laetitia is a fantastic host…”

The house had everything we needed to make amazing meals, and it is steps from fully equipped grocery stores which is helpful when feeding 15. Also very easy to get a cab anywhere you needed to go.

Beautiful home! Definitely will come back to Casa Mila. Great location, great hospitality. Very clean and stylish home.

“Wow! What an amazing place. We stayed for a month working from home during the pandemic and lived like kings and queens. The house is perfect for a few couples since it has 3 equally luxurious king rooms. The location in SMA is as good as it gets – a short walk from the center and high enough uphill for spectacular views from the roof deck (but not so far uphill that the walk is too strenuous). The WiFi was also excellent – all 4 of us worked every weekday with zero issues. Thanks to our hosts and of course to our wonderful chef/housekeeper extraordinaire Paty for the month of our lives!

Not much more I could say than WOW. This place is central, impeccable and a dream come true. It has great energy and is the respite we were looking for. Scott, Paty and crew were nothing short of amazing!!
