Visitors' Comments

Playa Zicatela is the long stretch of beach located on the east side of Puerto Escondido. It is the main surfing area for Puerto Escondido, attracting surfers from all over the world, and is the site of annual surfing competitions in August and November. The principal surfing season runs April through November when ground swells in the 6-15 foot (2-5 meter) range break into hollow tubes. For expert surfers only. Not for swimmers. The November competition is associated with Puerto Escondido's Fiesta de Noviembre. The Mexpipe and World Masters Championships are held in August.
