So, maybe the holidays won’t be canceled? It looks like the lockdown is going to start being phased out little by little, in the next month. That means that travel restrictions are going to be one of the first things lifted. People have to get to work, they need to start flying again and bam, it’s your time to shine in Puerto Escondido!
Puerto Escondido, Oaxaca
This is in the South of Mexico. It really is a surfer and swimmer’s paradise. The award winds of the South Pacific Ocean, make for great waves that slowly calm as they hit the shore. It makes this coastal and port town, such a relaxing place to stay. If you like to be by the beach all day long, you will fit like a glove in this beautiful hidden gem.
Popular with the surfers
Playa Zicatela is known to have consistent waves. It makes this beach like a safe haven for surfers and swimmers. Many harmless exotic fish are swept by the current, closer to the shore. This means you could be swimming with bright-colored sea creatures, even before you’ve had lunch.
Make sure you take the best equipment with you, like a Splashgear swimming caps. These are chlorine-proof, use a 3-panel design to properly fit your head and they stretch perfectly to make a one-size-fits-all hair protector. They also sell swim shirts which help you to move through the water with ease. When you’re falling off your surfboard a lot and need to swim over to it to get on it again, you need to have very streamlined equipment. You’ll also want to make sure you pack reef-safe sunscreen and any other water sport related equipment like a snorkel, mask, and fins.
Food, fun and leisure
After being stuck indoors, all you’re going to want to do is, sit a little more? Yes, that’s right, you will, because Playa Principal is designed just for relaxing, having fun, playing games, eating great local seafood and sunbathing among the palm trees. What an incredible sight, one of the best beaches if not, the best in Mexico. It’s just as you picture it in your mind, turquoise water, lime green vegetation, sand as soft as snow and the waves dare not disturb your midday nap. The Playa Principal also has shallow water, so you can bathe or swim, it’s up to you. If you have kids, they will be safe in the cut-off shallow areas where lifeguards are watching over them. The local fisherman also provides charter trips, so you will be guided along the coast and allowed to catch some of their exotic fish you swam with in the morning. Strictly catch and release, of course.
A truly Mexican stay
The Suites La Hacienda is a pure example of Mexican hospitality. This hotel is bright, colorful, well-made and very stylish. The reviews online say it’s simply ‘exceptional’ and it has a near-perfect 9.5-star rating. It’s got a nice swimming pool, with plenty of privacy vegetation. The tall exotic foliage gives you a shield from the sun but also keeps you away from prying eyes.
What a breath-taking place, truly a coastal town like no other in North America. The waves, beaches, and calmness of the area, really make this a place to be spoiled.
