My husband and I have been down to San Agustinillo three times and our favorite place by far is Punta Placer. The grounds are beautifully maintained, the whole complex is very clean, and the owners and staff are friendly and gracious. Punta Placer's restaurant is a great place to have breakfast (their chilaquiles were amazing). From the restaurant, smooth rocks...

What an amazing place! Our rooms were very comfortable and what a GREAT view! Claire and her staff were GREAT! Really don't think you could find a better location as we were close enough to town and also right on the beach a few steps away from the water. Our rooms were always clean and comfortable.

This place made me feel like a king for three days. I am sure it is the best place around, and couldn't be closer to the beach. The waves will put you to sleep at night. The coconut palms in front make perfect shade for reading, hammock snoozing, watching the beach doggies, or just watching the surf. The beds are...

My 15 year old son and I traveled to this amazing place for his 15th birthday... and it was the most perfect part of our trip. The bungalows are perfect, the staff are friendly and accommodating, and you couldn't ask for a better location. We arrived tired and sore from a 10 hour bus ride from Oaxaca city. We found...

Two nights at the Cabanas Punta Placer in San Agustinillo. Eight rooms in all, with a small restaurant. Our very clean room was outfitted with an overhead fan, locally made toiletries, a very firm platform bed, a fridge, a hammock and patio, and nice view of the beach and ocean. Although right on the only street in town, the ocean...

Our experience was Excellent! David and Claire will take care you! The Red Snapper they served us one night was the best we ever had, along with the yummy coconut flan. We also tested the Margaritas along the beach and we always came back to Punta Placer, as did our other family members. You want a GREAT Margarita see Claire....
