Nature
“The best beach all around Puerto, but it has 167 steps to get to it. You could swim, surf or snorkle. There are paddle board rentals and the only issue is that the restaurants are a little bit expensive. ”

“One of the nicest beach spots in Puerto Escondido. Perfect spot to learn to surf (the waves are much gentler than La Punta and you don't have the current to contend with!) You can swim, snorkel, sunbath and eat here. A great all day spot! Note there are over 50 stairs to get to the beach, but so worth it!”

“Taxis are the best option to move around Puerto Escondido, either for short or long distances. They are cheap and safe. Normally they have standard fees for different places and you can take them anywhere in the street. ”

“comida costeña, tortillas hechas a mano, una delicia; el lugar es muy sencillo y caluroso pero vale la pena, los precios super baratos, las salsas de molcajete y frijoles de olla son lo máximo. Es un lugar favorito de habitantes locales”
