7 Reasons to Visit Puerto Escondido
Join me on a tour of this rambunctious jalapeno of a surf town!
If you’re looking for a new destination that has a bit of everything, Puerto Escondido should be at the top of your travel bucket list.
We spent a sun-filled week in this rambunctious Mexican surf town, largely intact. Read on for our seven favorite reasons to visit this jalapeno of a town:
To Learn to Surf
Puerto Escondido is known for the giant wave “The Mexican Pipeline” also called “the destroyer of boards” and is one of top ten surf meccas in the world. There are several surf schools to choose from, with the locals choice being Oasis Surf School. They were the first surf school in Puerto Escondido, they teach surfing and spanish to foreigners, and are run by ex-pro surfers who really know what they’re doing.
Unlike other destinations (like Hawaii, for example, which only has good surfing conditions for six months of the year), Puerto Escondido has great surfing conditions year-round. That means that you don’t have to tailor your time away from work to the surfing conditions. You can simply expect that when you arrive, the surf will be sick, the water will be warm, and the town will be active.
