Getting To and Away From Puerto Escondido


There are daily flights between Mexico City or Oaxaca and Puerto Escondido. Tickets can be purchased either at the airport or through some of the tour operators and travel agencies based in Puerto Escondido. Most of these aircraft (especially the ones to and from Oaxaca City) are tiny little propeller planes where a passenger may be seated next to the pilot; the trips are very short.


Puerto Escondido has two bus stations – the OCC bus station, and the Estrella Blanca bus station. While other bus lines can be found at each station, OCC and Estrella are the two main lines that go in and out of Puerto Escondido.

Buses go to Oaxaca, Mexico City, Acapulco, San Cristóbal de las Casas, Tuxtla Gutiérrez and to the smaller towns in between. It is almost always worth paying for first class or premier class. There are lots of very curvy roads on these trips, so sensitive passengers should be take motion sickness medication, like Dramamine, ahead of time.


Cars can be rented in all of the main towns in the area, but they are not very economical. An average rate is about $90 per day. There are also extra high drop-off fees to leave the car in a city other than where it was picked up. Driving in Mexico can be a hassle if the area is not familiar. Streets and roads aren’t marked well, road conditions are often poor and there are lots of one-way streets that are hard to distinguish from two-way streets.
