Puerto Escondido

After a seven hour roller coaster bus ride through the mountains of Oaxaca we finally arrived in Puerto Escondido.  Once a remote fishing village and coffee port, Puerto Escondido or Hidden Port, has been popular with surfers long before it began attracting travelers and tourists to its shores. 

The legendary Mexican Pipeline runs just offshore and attracts some of the most experienced surfers from all over the world.  This is especially true during the month of November when Puerto Escondido is host to several national and international surfing championships.

Surprisingly inexpensive with a great travelers scene, Puerto Escondido is the perfect place to chill out and relax.  Here the most popular activity for us non-surfers, besides lounging on the beach, is spending a few hours at one of the many beachfront restaurants, sipping cervezas and watching the surfers ride waves while taking in the spectacular sunset.

We’re staying at Casa Dan y Carmen, an awesome place right off the beach.  Check out the view from our terrace!
