I went 2 years ago at Easter and it had a great atmosphere because the party does not stop . It is very nice for me, after twenty years of being in Oaxaca, to go and I could hardly find a place I really like. It was very beautifu, the dress is so beautiful , as well as the people and beautiful beaches.
International surfers really like Zicatela beach. We were there for my 62nd birthday on and stayed in a place overlooking the beach with wonderful sunsets most days. There is nearby bar that connects the river to the sea and has exotic birds.
This is a nice beach for people who are just getting started with marine activities as the waves here are not large as in Zicatela. Here, there is also the pier watching tours where you can see turtles, dolphins and whales hopefully. Fishermen arrive with products and later cook their catch.
This picturesque harbor is on the south coast of the Mexican Pacific Ocean in the state of Oaxaca which borders Guerrero. Like all beaches along the ocean, Puerto Escondido has a natural beauty and a wide variety of flora and fauna. The mountain range that crosses the state of Oaxaca corresponds to the Sierra Madre Occidental. It is a small town that has just 20,000 inhabitants but it receives a lot of domestic and foreign tourists who like the natural, beautiful atmosphere. Its hotel infrastructure is still very simple compared to the neighboring Guerrero beaches such as Acapulco and Ixtapa Zihuatanejo. The main attraction of Puerto Escondido is the quiet. It´s beaches are also super enjoyable for the strong surfing waves. There are many different restaurants with typical Mexican food including seafood dishes and of course the typical dishes of Oaxaca. There are also several handicraft markets. It's a great experience to enjoy these beautiful beaches in an enchanting area full of history and legends of the sea.
This beach is great for families to come and enjoy the rock formation that surround it. The smallest kids may enter without worrying about big, strong waves. With snorkel equipment , you can spend plenty of time watching the minnows in this place you will find. For the more adventurous can see fishes surf the waves, like the stingray. There are rustic restaurants, fishing along the entire beach between Puerto Escondido and Poxutla (15.7380, -96.8076).
Zicatela Beach is famous worldwide for the quality of its waves. Several surfing championships are held here throughout the year and people travel year-round to practice this sport. Surf culture is entrenched here, with schools, shops, and surfer cafes that give it a local hippie air. If you love surfing and are in Puerto Escondido, try it out if you haven't yet and know where you're going.
If you go to Puerto Escondido and don't surf, don't worry, you can still find things to do. If you drop by the beach, the locals will suggest going out in a boat. The price depends on the number of people who go, but you can always negotiate. When I went I saw sea turtles. Normally the fisherman pulled into the water when he sees and grabs to show to tourists. Although in theory they don't hurt them, it's better to ask them not to do so, so as not to disturb the poor animals. If all goes well, you will catch some small tuna with the rod that incorporates the boat. Once ashore, the restaurant with the fish is that your agreement will prepare free tuna with rice and some seasoning and you can take a seat wherever you want. All you have to pay the restaurant are the drinks. It's a very nice way to spend the morning. And please remember the turtles: Don't touch them!
La Punta is the southernmost beach on Playa Zicatela, a rocky area with large waves, which makes it ideal for surfers but not recommendable for swimmers as the currents are very strong. There is a palapas, or beach restaurant, on the beach, where you can drink.
