There are all types of vacationers coming to the Oaxaca coast in southern Mexico and every single one of them can find what they’re looking for. Some flock to Puerto Escondido’s social, happening beaches for some of the biggest surf in Mexico. Those not looking to surf all day and party all night can find secluded Airbnbs by the calmer and quieter beaches on the outskirts of town, or even trek a bit further from Puerto Escondido to the sleepy beach towns of Mazunte and Zipolite. From surf shacks to beachside villas and apartments, here are the best Puerto Escondido Airbnbs and hotels for an amazing seaside vacation.
