Where to stay?
We took an Airbnb near La Punta, a wave very well known to surfers. I loved this location! We had very nice restaurants nearby, bars and the atmosphere was great! On the other hand, we do not share the address because it was literally not a great accommodation for the holidays but rather to party every day! On the other hand, we found many accommodations around 22 € / night for 2 people.
Explore the beaches of puerto escondido
Puerto Escondido is not packed with activities. However, you have many beaches to rest! We really discovered most of the beaches in Puerto. Therefore, I share with you my experience with my preferences! Zicatela beach is the huge beach that was near our accommodation. It is perfect for a morning walk. On the other hand, I find it a bit dangerous for swimming during the high surfing season.
Try surfing at la punta
Puerto Escondido being known for surfing, nothing better than renting a board and trying out the sport! You can find many vendors near the beaches.
Discover the lagoon of chacahua
We leave for a day excursion to the Chacahua lagoon. Located 2 hours north of Puerto Escondido, this lagoon is located in a national park full of animal and plant diversity; birds, reptiles, amphibians and different types of mangroves. The little boat trip is very pleasant to get to the beach. The place is only accessible by boat.
