Playa Zicatela - Beach Puerto Escondido - Mexico

This is the surfing beach. New and experienced surfers alike come here to test the waves. The waters are pretty rough here, so swimming is not recommended. It is a great place to hang out and get some sun, watch the surfers and do some wading in the water. There are restaurants and bars that line the beach up by the street and more across the street from the beach. Beach chairs and umbrellas are available, rented out by locals who collect a few pesos for their use by the day or the hour. Be sure to bargain with them. Watch the sand crabs come out and run around.
