Each room is a Mexican ‘palapa’ structure with typical high ceilings made of tropical hardwoods thickly covered with dried palm leaves.

The Zazil can be found in the charming little beach village of San Agustinillo on the Pacific coast of the state of Oaxaca in Southern Mexico. The area of San Agustinillo and Mazunte is considered a "Magical Village" (Pueblo Mágico) since 2015. It is a privileged destination to enjoy the Pacific coast among history, culture, and nature. The combination of half-empty beaches and moderate prices makes this up-and-coming area very attractive for travelers, who are looking for a safe journey but ready to explore beyond the popular Mexican beach areas.
The Zazil Retreat is set in a quiet, relaxed hilltop along the sea awash with gentle breezes of fresh sea air against a thick canopy of trees, hidden from eyes of locals and visitors, but within a seven-minute walk to the beach, the main street, and restaurants. Rise to birds chirping and rest at night to the soft sounds waves and crickets. Zazil is a place to harmonize your senses with all the effects of the natural surroundings.
