Mexico
Puerto Escondido is a traditional Mexican fishing village located 280 km south of the city of Oaxaca and 110 km west of Huatulco Bay in an area known as the Emerald Coast for its magnificent jade-green waters. Puerto Escondido offers all the commodities of a splendid tourist destination enriched with traditional Oaxacan coast culture.The diverse beaches in Puerto Escondido are one of its major attractions, varying in types of sand, waves and rocky slopes. Playa Principal, is one of the calm beaches in the city, offering kiosks and changing rooms; while Marineros is ideal for novice surfers and Zicatela, considered one of the top 10 surfing locations in the world.
Other popular beaches include Barra de Colotepec, a turtle zone; Bacocho, an open beach with gentle waves ideal for diving; Playa Embarcadero, suitable for skiing and sailing; and Carrizalillo, a bay area perfect for swimming and boat trips. Puerto Angelito, a small bay next to Puerto Escondido, is another great place to visit. Its natural pool, with transparent waters, is ideal for recreational swimming.
The nightlife will satisfy anyone dedicated to late nights and good music. For dining suggestions you will find a smorgasbord of sidewalk cafes, tableclothed restaurants and rustic palapas on the beach.
