Looking for a chill beach to take a book and read? Learn to surf or catch some waves in this lovely bay? Do not miss Playa Carrizalillo! Be ready to walk down a series of stone stairs and save some energy to walk up!

Yo creo que sólo en taxi, pero los taxis de calle en Puerto Escondido son muy económicos. Siempre cobran entre 25 y 35 pesos la dejada en la zona de Puerto.
