Immersed in the middle of a tropical forest, on the bank of the unique coasts of Mexico’s Pacific Ocean — you can discover the picturesque town of Puerto Escondido, Oaxaca

Puerto is famous for its beaches, its internationally waves, its fabulous weather and warm ocean waters year-round. Many would spend hours arguing at a local watering hole that this is where surfers go to die.

Known as one of the last places to vacation along Mexico's coast where you can still find isolation, PE actually still affords you the mellow company of no large resorts and no over-crowded beaches. And if that doesn't make you want to pack your bags already then keep scrolling to see how our friends Scott and Abby from Orijin Media spent a weekend down in Puerto.

PE attracts an eclectic clientele of expats world-class surfers, backpackers, and world travelers. If you’re traveling on a budget there are plenty of hostels such as the One Love Hostel.

Zicatela Beach is home to a world famous break that hosts major surfing competitions that has led to its nickname “The Mexican Pipeline." A town where owning a surfboard is often more common than owning a cell phone. 

A few miles off the coast you’ll find an ocean teaming with dolphins, whales, and a sport fisher’s paradise.


So next time you're looking for a weekend escape, go ahead and do yourself a favor. Head off the grid down to Puerto Escondido to soak up the sun, surf, and fish in paradise.
