At the wild beach in Puerto Escondido (Oaxaca, Mexiko)
A weekend in Puerto Escondido. I must say that I did not feel so comfortable there compared to Mazunte. Puerto is quite large and busy, a real city .. To visit and do some shopping certainly well but not relaxing or nice. There are several nice beaches and the “Zicatela” district on the left of the town is a small hippy and surfing destination with some hostels and restaurants. For surfing it is much better there than in Mazunte and Zipolite.
One highlight is the beach there in Zicatela: On the left on the stones there is a way up over the rocks and behind it are pretty cliffs, a cave and a beautiful lonely, stony path to a deserted beach! In the cave we did wonderful yoga and enjoyed the solitude. Further back on the beach with the rocks there are great shady places in the rocks where you can just enjoy the peace.
