¡Puerto Escondido! (I hate busses Part 1)
We made it to the beach!!! This bay
was once mainly used to ship coffee, but now it attracts international
surfers, backpackers and many Mexican families and is quite touristy.
And it is HOT here!
We opted for the big, coach-style bus (ADO) which took 11 hours (overnight) …
... 6:45 am and were brought to Puerto Angelito. Altogether we were 6 people in the boat plus the guide. We used the "Omar Sport Fishing" and were very happy with the service provided. First we got to see some flying fish as well as sea snakes (which are small, yellow and very poisonous). Then we spotted a huge whale together with her baby whale and followed it for a while - truly impressive how huge they were! After that we had to go pretty far offshore to find some dolphins which ...

The food was really cheap and pretty tasty, I had an omelette with ham, cheese and mushroom with potatoes on the side and a smoothie and Bobbie had scrambled eggs with bacon, potatoes on the side as well. After a nice big brekkie we had a dip in the pool, the weather is really hot, not a humid as Veracruz but more heat from the sun.

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Rincon del Pacifico Puerto Escondido
Great location yet over-priced compared with others. Lifeless atmosphere and an 80's feel. Clean, safe and secure though lacks character and charm.
Location easy to walk to from main ADO bus station.
