Puerto Escondido

Accommodation Price Comparison

Mexico is situated in the northern region of the American continent linking the Gulf of Mexico on the east and the Pacific Ocean on the west. It is encircled by the United States on the north and by Guatemala and Belize on the south and is divided into six tourist regions. These regions are Northern Mexico, Central Mexico, Southern Mexico, The Yucatan Peninsula, The Pacific Coast and The Baja California Peninsula.
Puerto Escondido, a heavenly beach destination, lies on the coast of the state of Oaxaca, 249 kilometers south of the state capital. The climate is semi-humid, with rainfall in the summer and an average temperature of 28 degree Celsius.
Among its many attractions, this destination offers a notable group of beaches surrounded by lush vegetation. The blue-green waters are ideal for doing a wide variety of aquatic sports. One of the beaches, Zicatela, hosts an international surfing competition, while in November a sportfishing tournament takes place at Playa Principal. In the environs one will find nature areas like the Lagunas de Chacahua National Park, which consists of a group of lagoons and mangroves where one can spy a wide variety of indigenous wildlife, such as crocodiles, iguanas, exotic bird species and songbirds.
At Mazunte Beach one can visit the Centro Mexicano de la Tortuga, a turtle sanctuary dedicated to the research and conservation of various turtle species. Another strong draw is Puerto Escondido’s delicious fish and seafood dishes, as well as its regional Oaxacan fare, such as mole and quesillo, a stringy cheese. Here one can also partake in an interesting celebration in honor of the Virgen de Juquila. In addition, one will find beautiful crafts made of seashells and black coral. At night, one can party until the break of dawn at the restaurants, bars and nightclubs along the beach.

Puerto Escondido can also be considered as the preeminent, historical and potential tourism destination that enjoys a very positive reputation with worldwide travelers to become one of the most visited places.
