Finding reasonably priced attractive and convenient accommodations in Taxco can be very di
fficult. You have to know your resources: if you already have enough savings aside for a place here and if you are ready to move in anytime. There is no central listing except at the language school, SEP, and they make their listings available only to students. Many landlords simply hang up a sign with a telephone number at the location they are trying to rent. Keep your eyes open and call immediately. Properties go very fast, especially the good ones. You might try placing an ad on the local radio station, but you will have to have a telephone number where you can be reached. Here are some of the rentals we found when we were looking for an apartment. Please be aware that prices have risen sharply in the last several years and some of this information will have changed.

Many of the better apartments and houses for rent are located on steep walking paths called callejónes which means you cannot arrive by car or taxi at your door. I clearly remember counting the steps – 83 – to our apartment when we lived on Callejón Altos de Redondo. Unfurnished usually means no stove and no refrigerator as well as no furniture. Standard size simple stoves and fridges will usually cost about US $400 each at Electra, delivered. Electra is a nation wide Mexican appliance store with two branches in Taxco.

Thanks to Dominique R., from Canada, the following information has been added to and updated.



What follows is all the information we have on apartments and houses to rent that we collected when we were looking for an apartment. The information regarding prices is dated, but the contacts are probably still good. It is a starting point in any case in a town where finding a good apartment is a little like finding a needle in a haystack. Good luck. We would very much appreciate hearing from you to keep this list as current as possible. Everyone will benefit.

New Information from a site visitor (2008):

I tried only the first phone number, which is Sra. Sabelia’s, but she has no house on Altos de Redondo. She rents two apartments in her house between the end of Callejón Mesquite and the Guadalupe church. I think it is Calle Mesquite, but as is so usual in getting directions in Taxco, street names and house numbers are either unavailable or too confusing to understand. She didn't give me the name of the street or the number of the house, but very kindly sent her grand-son to meet me half-way. One unit is a large one room apartment on the street, the other one she told me has a kitchen, living-room and bedroom, and a balcony on the garden which may be high enough to have a view.
