Mexico is adventure. Mexico is a country that offers so much that it is hard to reconcile, not even under a big sombrero.
Puerto Escondido, home of the Mexican pipeline “Zicatela” and many other waves. The place is full of color and life and you can hardly get enough of Puerto Escondido. The village stretches along the long Zicatela bay, at one end you will find the fishermen, in the middle is the world-famous Beach Break “Zicatela” and at the other end is the Pointbraek “La Punta”.
Puerto Escondido is a culinary highlight, the cuisine of Oaxaca is world-famous. From street tacos to fine Mexican cuisine, you’ll find everything.
4 REASONS FOR A SUDDEN RUSH SURF TRIP TO MEXICO:
- Warm accommodation with a local family (Attention: no surf camp!)
- Personal surf coach / guide to always surf the right spot
- Safe environment with relaxed surf vibe and guests from all over the world
- FOOD, FOOD, FOOD! Countless tasty restaurants with local and international dishes to keep the body supplied with enough paddle power at all times
The Cabanas Aloe is a little hidden at the Point Break “La Punta”. The district offers good food, shops, and transport. The beach break “Zicatela” can be reached on foot along the long bay.
Cabanas Aloe has different bungalows for guests with a smaller budget, which are comfortably and generously equipped. There is the possibility of single, double and multi-bed bungalows. There are also several shared bathrooms and a well-equipped kitchen, which can be shared by guests.
All bungalows are equipped with new mattresses and mosquito repellent. The well-known Mexican hammocks in the shade invite you to a siesta.
For the more demanding guests, Aloe offers the possibility of studios and apartments. The studios and apartments have a terrace with hammocks from which you can check the spot, a private kitchen and bathroom.
All units offer hot water and WiFi.
The roof terrace allows all guests to check the surf or enjoy the sunset. The view from the terrace is unique, the perfect place to unwind.
No meals are deliberately included. The food and markets in Puerto Escondido are so versatile, insanely tasty and cheap that eating out or shopping & cooking yourself can also be an adventure and is therefore highly recommended.
December to March: The off-season is the fun season for the beach break. The waves break every day, but the swells are smaller and guarantee a lot of fun. The break is not very frequented in the winter months and you will find waves every day, possibly also the wave of your life!
April to November: From spring on, the South swells arrive and the beach break turns into a big wave machine with plenty of current and hard-hitting waves. Between the swells, however, there are plenty of days when the waves are not so big, but still perfect for small tubes. Only for advanced surfers. When the waves break at the big swell, watching is an absolute spectacle! Better at mid to high tide.
Pointbreak La Punta
December to March: Here you will find waves from “small to medium-sized”, a break with a big fun factor! The wave breaks long and not as hard as the beach break.
April to November: With the first SouthSwells, La Punta turns into a fast, long pointbreak suitable for beginners and advanced surfers. Due to the fact that Puerto Escondido is a famous surfing destination and “La Punta” is suitable for different levels, the spot can be very busy. Better at low to mid-tide.
Playa Carizallio Reef Break
December to March: The bay is mostly flat in the winter months, except when it has an extraordinary amount of swell. The bay is ideal for lingering and swimming.
April to November: The left wave is ideal for longboarders and generally for surfers who prefer a chilled vibe. The right wave is only for advanced surfers as it breaks at the rocks and the reef is close to the surface. Better at low to mid-tide.
