Our life in Puerto Escondido, revolves around surf and this summer, was a little bit more fun than usual.
Zicatela is known to be the barrel paradise for most surfer guys.
Since the conditions are gnarly its not very common to see many girls out in those waves.
However, this summer, more girls start to charge at Zicatela.
Not just surfergirls, also bodyboarders and waterphotographers!
A normal day for us would start with an early surf check, while having a light breakfast.
Then, we would go out and surf/shoot, till it was too hot or the wind start messing up the waves.
For our well deserved lunch, we would usually take a "Colectivo" to get to the "Mercado in town.
A "Colectivo" is a pick up truck, with a tent-like cover and benches in the back, so the passengers can hop in and out as easy and fast as possible.
This is the most inexpensive way of transportation and the funnest.
You get to experience the real local Puerto Escondido lifestyle.
Once we get to the “Mercado” we go to our usual spot for authentic delicious mexican food.
The place is called “Vanessita”.
They have typical food from Oaxaca and all kinds of fresh fruit juices.
Since Polly, Maria Fernanda are regulars, the people at "Vanessita´s" already know what our favorite dishes are.
The friends we bring with us, is what changes every time!
After lunch we would buy groceries. You can choose from a big variety of fresh veggies, and fruits.
After buying our beloved 3 kilos of mangoes (which we will devour in a couple days), we headed home for “Siesta” time.
We would wake up from our “Siesta” and have another surf sesh or go for a walk before sun down.
Then we headed to the gym for our daily workout routine.
Dinner time was always fun, we would hangout with all our friends.
On the weekends we would go out for a little dancing, or to the movies.
I can say that this season in Mexico, was a total success :)
When the waves arent that good in Zicatela there are always other options.
You can always drive south.
This summer we decided we wanted to go to
Barra de la Cruz
for our mini surf trip.
Who doesnt like road trips?
Specially when you go hunting for some waves!
And sadly another Mexico season came to an end.
Its time to get our bags packed and our passports ready, for our next destination.
Thanks for coming along for the ride!
