Paddle out while the warm sun beats down on your back. Wait for the perfect wave. Hit the board, then ride that nirvana back into shore. Repeat. Puerto Escondido is an unapologetic surf town with a side of serious beach bum. The best place to test your board is the famous beach of Playa Zicatela.
Not a surfer? You don’t have to spend your holiday watching soap operas in your Puerto Escondido accommodation. Take a surf lesson at the beautiful and calm beach of Playa Carrizalillo. This beach is also a great retreat for some lazy swimming, sunbathing and snorkelling.
When the sun goes down, the traffic-free main strip, “El Adoquín” is the place to refuel on fresh seafood and authentic Mexican dishes. Then it’s time to hit the bars, share your adventures from the day and shake what your mama gave ya.
Touch down in Puerto Escondido International Airport (PXM) and then grab a taxi into town. Once you make it to Puerto Escondido, you’ll need something to ride other than your board. Buses and taxis can get you to all the major points in town, but a rental car (from Wotif, naturally!) will let you see a few cool sites off the beaten path, including the nearby Chacahua Lagoon.
We know you want to surf your days away, but eventually you’ll need a place to dry off and wash the sand out. Use Wotif to save big on Puerto Escondido hotels and to put together low-cost Puerto Escondido holiday packages.
