Customer Travel Tip: Learn or at least try to surf if you don't know it already and try to get mixed up with the local people. This way you will get the real flavor of Puerto Escondido.

Liked: I love the people and the relaxed pace of the local culture there. They are open and friendly and the waves. People go to Puerto for their waves, surf culture and beaches.

Disliked: It takes you a trip to the city to find an ATM. Hotels in Zicatela have some but local people tell they are mostly empty.
