Puerto Escondido Beach

As soon as the tourist ride down short slope, between the branches he can enjoy a amazing view one of this, you can watch for eternity. From here the visitor spot a beautiful beach, which create almost perfect semicircle bay.

Its sand is like a orange color and is completely clean and smoothed by the gentle waves of the Pacific. The integrity of the smoothed sand is interrupted only by a white shell scattered throughout its surface and your own footprints in the sand. The beach is surrounded by green tropical trees which offered enough shade and protect the visitors against the strong sunshine. There are many mature trees with trunks and branches strong enough to hang a hammock and relax, read a book or my favorite performance a nap.

At one extreme of the beach there is the small rock which closed this end. This part of the beach is not sandy but is formed by small rounded stones and if you have a mask this is the right place for snorkeling and watching the different species of the pacific ocean fishes. This beach is completely unspoilt and little visited, it is an ideal place for a weekend escape. To enjoy it at full or do not to provide basic survival supplements such as sunscreen, water, ceviche, beer, Frisbee, diving mask, a hammock and good humor.
