Puerto Escondido

Puerto Escondido is emerging as one of Oaxaca's premier coastal destinations. Famous for its world class waves and boho vibe, travelers can expect to find a little awesomeness in every aspect of this town. 

Private accommodations sprawl along the Puerto Escondido coastline. The luxury communities dot the south-eastern shoreline where you'll find communities like La Barra, Costa Cumana, Los Naranjos, Tomatal and Neptuno. Each zone offers incredible collections of unique and uber-luxe villas that embody the tropical surroundings. 

Foodies - Oaxaca is revered for its unique  gastronomic offerings and we are happy to report, Puerto delivers in full force on the foodie-front! One experience not to be missed is the Tasting Menu at Almoraduz, located in Rinconada. It has been a pleasure watching this hot spot rise as the details have been fine tuned over the years to now land on a truly memorable dining experience. Reservations are highly recommended!

Shoppers - Zicatela, known for its mesmerizing waves, also offers a classic beachside shopping strip. Here you will find everything from jewlery to surf boards, tourist T's to beachwear, snacks to Yogi-Shops. It's fun, it's casual and you can wander with a bevvie in hand to stay hydrated and enjoy the experience! For more local handicrafts, we recommend an evening stroll along The Adoquin. Here you will find souvenirs and nightlife options. 

Bar & Cafe Hoppers - Our Two Favorite Zones:
La Punta or Zicatela! Both areas offer great nightlife, complete with DJs and Mezcal. Zicatela offers more of a club scene, where La Punta is the boho-barstool-laid-back sipping zone. Both serve-up lots of fun with many options to choose from!

Beach Lovers - Our favorite central options are the famous Zicatela (as you can read above, there is lots to do along this beach), Punta Zicatela, or Carizalillo (where you can actually get in the water). 

Surfers - Welcome Home. The options are worldclass and endless. Grab your board and head to the beach.

Most of the Puerto Escondido coastline has quite rough conditions and is not swimmer-friendly. There are strong riptides and undertows that make it difficult, even for strong swimmers. That said, Carrizalillo offers a protected cove where ocean-lovers congregate to enjoy an afternoon in the water. Other spots may also be found throughout the region (including Playa Principal & Manzanillo), but be sure you ask before dipping your toes in, to be safe.
