Situated on the Mexican Pacific Coast of Oaxaca, Puerto Escondido is an old fishing village that has preserved its charm, with its beaches of fine white sand enclosed by a turquoise sea and surrounded by lush, tropical vegetation. Moreover, due to its warm climate and average annual temperature of 27 ° C., you can visit it all year round.
It offers accommodation options for all budgets: small huts on the beach, hotels, family hotels, and 4 star hotels with some overlooking the ocean from the cliff of the bay.
In the downtown is the tourist walkway called "The Cobblestone" where you will find several hotels, restaurants, cyber cafes, and small travel and tour agencies. You can find typical crafts of Oaxaca’s colorful ceramic suns and moons, the Alebrijes, and paintings produced on amate paper.
Among its six magnificent beaches: Zicatela Beach, Playa Marinero, Playa Principal, Playa Puerto Angelito, and Playa Playa Carrizalillo Bacocho, you can relax, savor local seafood, and take part in plenty of aquatic and leisure activities.
And if you love surfing, you know Zicatela is one of the best spots on the planet because each year is the scene of the World Championships of Surf and Bodyboard bringing together Mexican and foreign surfers, both professional and amateurs alike.
And if you like sport fishing, you can catch some of the finest specimens of Dorado, Marlin, and Sailfish.
