Camping in Puerto Escondido can be a magical experience. This town offers many amazing attractions, but its natural features are what define it: the calm sea and towering rocks that draw visitors to the beach to sleep on moonlit sands.
The people of Puerto Escondido, like those of other coastal communities in Mexico, are cheerful, helpful, and proud of their area. They frequently recommend that visitors camp out near the hotel zone or on the beach of the village of Carrizalillo with an incredible view of the Pacific.
Specially designed for a pleasurable night under a canopy of stars, the Ventanilla protected zone provides a series of exotic spaces to set up tent and go on nocturnal adventures such as visiting turtles’ nests and perhaps seeing some hatch.
Another good place to camp is Puerto Angelito, reached by boat from Zicatela. This is a quiet beach, perfect for spending an afternoon relaxing to the lapping of the waves and then settling in for the evening at a beachside palm-thatched seafood restaurant.
