We had such a blast in Puerto Escondido we decided to allocate at least five days at the end of our trip for Puerto little disappointing. Big, boisterous and expensive with gringos everywhere and not the gringos that you like, the tattoo wearing, hairy chested, drink until you make an ass of yourself gringo.

It started off lovely, the hotel lost our reservation and then claimed that there were no economic rooms available. We told him that when we reserved, just yesterday, there were plenty of economic rooms available. This was Saturday and after 4pm so the reservation desk was closed and wouldn't be open until Monday, and because of this there was no way for us to make a reservation (???). Being a little disgruntled, we proceeded to the computer terminal not more than 5 feet away from him and made a reservation for an economic room that night...paid for it and all. Then we walked back over to him and demanded a room for the web fare we had just reserved. We now had a new reservation number. He was befuddled to say the least and after many discussions with the management he asked us to please cancel the reservation and they would provide an upgraded suite for the web fare price. He didn't speak to us the rest of our stay, but we now had an oceanfront en suite with nice size patio.

Beautiful weather accompanied us for the next several days and we were exemplary beach bums.
