About Puerto Escondido

Puerto Escondido is located in the state of Oaxaca, in the south west part of Mexico, on the coast between Chiapas and Guerrero. It ‘s the third biggest city of the state, after Oaxaca and huatulco. The city is divided between two municipalities: San Pedro Mixtepec, and Santa Maria de Colotepec (postal code 71980). In 2021 it was estimated that Puerto Escondido counted around 29,903 inhabitants (source:pueblosamerica.com) versus 20,000 in 2009 (source: wikipedia).

When is the best time to visit?

The best season to visit this mexican gem is between November to May, which is known as the dry season. It is also the season that is the most crowded, indeed its sunny weather, paradisiacal beaches, makes Puerto Escondido a growing tourist attraction in Mexico. According to a study made by the Mexican government, in 2021 the amount of passengers flying to Puerto Escondido’s airport has grown by 96.6%.

weather comparison

The most crowded months will be December and January. From June to October is going to be the wet season, where you’ll have a hot and humid environment (and lots of mosquitos). These months are a lot more quiet, and the place is still completely enjoyable as it doesn’t rain all the time at all. Usually the rain will start late in the day (around 5PM) to night (10 – 11PM).

 

To know more about the best season to visit Puerto Escondido, please take a look at our blog article: What is the weather like in Puerto Escondido?

Where to stay?

You have 5 main areas in Puerto Escondido that are known as: “La punta”, “Zicatela”, “Rinconada”, “El adoquín”,and “El centro”.

 

La Punta

La punta” is the area located in the south part of Puerto Escondido and is called that way because of the configuration of the bay. It.s particularity is indeed to end in a form of a point, which create great waves for surfing (also known as “point breaks”) and explains the popularity of this place. La Punta is the most recent growing neighborhood in Puerto Escondido, and thus, the most undeveloped. Expect dirt roads, electricity cuts, chicken, goats, street dogs, and more rustic accommodations. The vibe is chill, hippie, surfer, yoga. It is the most popular area among the foreigners that come to visit Puerto Escondido.

Zicatela

Zicatela” is the area next to la Punta when you head north. This area is known for its gigantic waves that professionals from all over the world come to surf. Considered as one of the heaviest beach breaks in the world, the waves from Zicatela beach are known to be one of the most dangerous in the whole world. Don’t you dare paddling out at Zicatela if you are not an advanced surfer. Apart from its amazing waves, Zicatela offers a more developed zone with hotels and small resorts. Most night clubs are also located in this area, which is known for its late ending parties.

Rinconada

Rinconada” is an area located in the northern part of Puerto Escondido. This area is characterized by its multiple bays that are much more protected from the waves. The area is more quiet and the infrastructures are more recent. You will find the best restaurants of Puerto Escondido in the main street. It is a good option if you want to take a break, enjoy the beach, eat well, and work remotely (Internet is better than in La Punta or Zicatela). You still have a few bars but if you are looking to party, this is not the area you are looking to spend your vacations. The main bay of this zone is called Carrizalillo beach, and is known to be the most beautiful bay of Puerto Escondido (but can be quite crowded during high season).

El adoquin

El adoquín” is a small zone between Zicatela and Rinconada, in the middle of Puerto Escondido ‘s coastline. This ‘more traditional’ neighborhood is characterized by its local restaurants and markets, especially around seafood. Located right in front of the main bay, this is also the main harbor of Puerto Escondido. Indeed, the main bay being protected from the pacific swells, it makes the place a perfect spot to park the boats safely. If you are looking forward to buying some fish, go on a whale watching or dolphins tour, this is probably where your journey will start.

The sunsets in la Punta beach are amazing, the beach usually gets crowded at that time of the day.

zicatela beach

Zicatela beach

Zicatela beach” also known as “The Mexican Pipeline” or “The Mexpipe” is a beach where you’ll either go to surf, or watch people surfing !

Don’t go surfing in Zicatela if you are not an advanced level surfer. If the waves are big, don’t get too close to the water. The level can rise very quickly and the currents are extremely strong. The beach is usually empty during the day, as you don’t have any shadow, it gets very hot.

coworking space puerto escondido

Coworkings

The post-pandemic situation enabled the possibility of reopening shared work spaces such as coworking. Places that, in Puerto Escondido, have become key for people who work remotely, since the internet is not usually the best attribute of this beach paradise.

Among the main coworking spaces chosen by tourists and expats are: Losodeli in Rinconada, Pauline creative Hub in Bacocho, Selina in Zicatela and El Mundito in Tamarindos (which also offers lodging).

These places usually offer membership packages or day passes to enjoy the services offered and the good internet connection.

Cafes with good internet

Another option, if you do not want to pay memberships or passes and only need to work a few hours, is to look for one of the cafes with the best internet in Puerto Escondido.

Just to name a few, we highlight here: Amarisa (based in La Punta and in Zicatela), Puerto Brew (brewery in Rinconada), Malagua café (in Tamarindos).

The truth is that, as the number of tourists arriving in Puerto Escondido has grown, the internet has also been improving, so it is possible that today many more places such as hostels, cafes and restaurants have a good connection to accompany the life of digital nomads.
