Services in Puerto Escondido
Bringing together the most fascinating aspects of Mexico’s Pacific coast, Puerto Escondido is located 70 miles northeast of Huatulco, in the state of Oaxaca. Its mountains dip into the ocean to bathe in the deep blue of its waters, creating a transfixing scene together with the golden sand and swaying palm trees.
Although “Puerto,” as its inhabitants and regular visitors call it affectionately, has grown rapidly in the last few decades, it still retains a rustic, relaxed atmosphere, which is in and of itself one of its main attractions.
There are luxury hotels, small inns, and campgrounds. Its cuisine is varied, and you can find food from all over the world. Seafood is the specialty, for its freshness and flavor.
There is no lack of bars and music festivals, galleries, and bohemian cafés.
Moreover, Puerto Escondido’s beaches have something for everyone: from peaceful ones without waves to ones that are world-famous for attracting expert surfers, like Zicatela.
The surroundings also have delightful surprises in store: coastal lagoons filled with exotic Mexican birds, iguana farms, unexplored beaches where many species of turtles nest, and coffee farms that export around the world.
