LOCATION & GETTING HERE

Location

PUERTO ESCONDIDO, OAXACA

 

Puerto Escondido is a port town and resort on Mexico’s Pacific coast in the state of Oaxaca. It’s known for its many beaches and buzzing nightlife. The town’s central Principal Beach is lined with palm trees and thatch-roofed bars. Busy Zicatela Beach is renowned for its Mexican Pipeline surf break. Neighboring La Punta Beach has smaller waves. Carrizalillo Beach is set in a cove backed by steep cliffs.

 

A magnet for surfers, would-be surfers and every other kind of beach lover, this ‘Hidden Port’ is one of the most enjoyable spots on Mexico’s Pacific coast. By day, you can surf, snorkel, dive, swim, tan, go sportfishing or look for turtles, dolphins and whales. By night, a busy cafe, restaurant and bar scene brings live music and a freewheeling, unpretentious nightlife. Development here has happened gradually over several decades and remained on a human scale, and part of Puerto’s charm is that it remains very much a fishing port and market town as well as a tourist destination.

 

The heart of town rises above the small Bahía Principal. The Carretera Costera (Hwy 200) runs across the hill above the bay, dividing the upper town – where buses arrive and most locals live and work – from the lower, more touristic part. The lower town’s main strip, part of Av Pérez Gasga, is known as El Adoquín (Spanish for ‘paving stone’). The hub of the surf and traveler scene is Playa Zicatela, stretching 3km southeast from Bahía Principal to Punta Zicatela (La Punta). Rinconada, a residential area above Playa Carrizalillo, west of the center, has further places to stay, and good restaurants and services.

 

Surf School is located in the heart of Rinconada, a beautiful small and chilled out area in the north part of town. We are next to playa Carrizalillo, the best beach for swimming and learning how to surf.

The climate here is tropical. The summers are much rainier than the winters in Puerto Escondido. This climate is considered to be Aw according to the Köppen-Geiger climate classification. The average annual temperature in Puerto Escondido is 27.1 °C. In a year, the average rainfall is 1363 mm.
