of Mexico – Puerto Escondido
Bill & Dorothy Bell
Drive 6 hours South of
Acapulco on Highway 200 to one of our very favorite beach spots in the world
– Puerto Escondido. “Puerto” is a laid back resort community and unlike any
of its big city sisters.
Bill tries his hand surfing
the Mexican Pipeline
There are no golden
Arches; Kentucky fried anything, or Whoppers. It has a more Mex-European
feel to it, with many Italian restaurants and other international
influences. No wonder. As the movie “Night of the Iguana” put Puerto
Vallarta on the map, the Italian film “Puerto Escondido” put this former
shipping village on the international radar screen.
Escondido or hidden port is a series of coves and bays stretching along the
Pacific Ocean. Each beach, depending on the geographical setting has
developed a community feel and responding services. Playa Zicatela “the
Mexican Pipeline,” is one of the world’s best surfing beaches and hosts an
International Surfing Competition annually in November. This area attracts
young surfers and backpackers from throughout the globe. Services include
surf shops, hammock rentals, coffee shops, tattoo and body piercing parlor.
The next beach north is
Playa Principal. The waves strike at a significantly different angle, are
much calmer and suitable for boogie boarding, family swims and boating.
A small cove north is
the twin beaches of Playa Manzanilla and Puerto Angelito. These are
beaches are protected
waters that make boating king. There are many Palapa style restaurants that
serve up the catch of the day, just minutes off the hook.
Again North, Playa Carrazilillo offers a romantic corner of
beach accessible by boat or by the steep 167 step stairway leading down to
the jade-green waters. Restaurants serve up great portions of beer, lobster
Escondido once offered very good RV services but the main RV Park has closed
and is now selling condo and home lots. The remaining RV parking is poor
quality and unsuitable for larger rigs. Don’t despair. There is plenty of
apartments and condos available in the 4-5000 peso a month category that
will meet your budget.
