A beutiful surfing place with Tuluminati vibe and very little internet.
I recently visited the surfers' paradise, also called Puerto Escondido, and in this blog post, I will share my experience, where to live, where to eat, when to travel and some extras. At the end of the blog post, please leave a quick comment to know how you enjoy my experience and if there is something else you want to know.
As far as Mexican beach destinations go, Puerto Escondido hits a sweet spot: moderately developed, laid back, well-touristed but still blissfully free of the sterile resorts and hordes of spring breakers in Cancún and other hotspots.
So let me tell you a few things about Puerto Escondido. Before communing here, you need to get prepared to see a lot of homeless dogs and have super lousy internet. It's a very chill place in the development stage, and there are three parts of the little town:
🤌🏻 If you are in anyways similar to me, you will need internet, and you will want to live near a coworking place. There are several options you can book:
I lived in the centre and La Punta. You will need to know that Puerto Escondido is pretty much a town for chilling and surfing. It's comparable with Tulum but way cheaper with minimal infrastructure.
It's currently trending on Nomad List, chilling in a lovely position at the 14th place on the list with some weird data, like the internet being excellent and the safety point being super low. I was experiencing quite the opposite, as the internet connection mainly was terrible and the whole place was extremely safe. I have heard of a few individuals being robbed at gunpoint, but honestly, nothing ever happened to me, even though I lived in the city for two months.
As you can see from the map above, Puerto Escondido is right on the coast and not far from the famous resort town of Huatulco. See the "Getting there" section below for access to the region. However, from Oaxaca, it's not as straightforward as it seems.
If you don't mind crowds, visit anytime from January through May or October through December — those are the drier months, ones where you will not be prey for a cloud of angry, hungry mosquitos. Or, a little fewer mosquitos at the very least!
If you want to avoid the crowds, I'd also carve out the weeks of spring break in Mexico (for this year, it's April 6-17th, 2020) and the Christmas holidays, when the beaches are packed with tourists from Mexico and elsewhere.
and here are the actual reviews:
