Location of Puerto
Escondido from Guadalajara Airport
Puerto Escondido is located
in the State of
It's known for its beautiful beaches, including the internationally famous
surfer beach, Zicatela. It's a short 1.5 hour flight from GDL airport and

afternoon view of Zicatela beach from the lookout point. Although the
surfers are not currently out, this is where the action is. Of course it
depends on which kind of 'action' one is looking for. Up at the farthest
beach point in the photo towards Huatulco is a nude beach.
A Great Place to Chill, Puerto

Puerto Escondido Revisited
We had a choice of taking a twisting
and turning 7 to 12 hour winding mountainous road trip on a bus or
shuttle as we had done a couple of years ago, or, as someone
recommended, take a more-or-less private flight from the city to one of
our favorite beach towns, Puerto Escondido. We took the flight.

Argentinos Steak House and Lobster Grill Puerto Escondido, Mexico
We have eaten at Argentine and
Uruguayan grills before and have been quite impressed with the quality

When Billy found this Argentine Steak House and Lobster Grill a few
blocks from his hotel in Puerto Escondido, he made plans to go there for
a special lunch.
Chula Restaurant Playa Zicatela Puerto Escondido, Mexico
Being foodies, one of the
pleasures of travel for us is to try out different restaurants. We are

sauce. Billy thought Chula Restaurant was a real find. Serving
Mediterranean food and Spanish tapas, Billy ate there several times.

The main attractions
of Puerto Escondido are its beaches, which have become internationally
