Puerto Escondido alone (female)

« on: June 15 2009 06:06:00 »

Hello. I'm planning a trip to Puerto Escondido to learn spanisch and for surfing. I'm not a very good surfer. Is Puerto Escondido dangerous or no problem if I travel alone??

Any suggestions where to stay and where to surf??

Thanks for your help!

You know I just came back from Puerto and it is not dangerous at all, there are many beaches; Zicatela beach (the mexican pipeline) is only for the experts but you can surf at Carrizalillo beach an you will have a great time.
Regarding the hotels I suggest you to stay close to Zicatela beach because that is where the action is.
The only danger to Puerto Escondido is that you fall in love with the relaxed lifestyle...I met a couple of people who left their homes to live there.
