P. Escondido to P. Angel

by travlinsouth Online Now Dec 25, 2005 at 4:59 PM

If I fly into PE, how hard, long, expensive, etc. is it to get to Puerto Angel?

Is it hard to rent cheap places by the month in either place?

I'm more into diving than surfing. Is there a "best place" for that along this coast?

    local busses are plentyful and very cheap.
    no problem getting from one place to another.

    puerto escondido has strong waves and is probaply not that good for diving, but puerto angel has more still waters and should be better for diving.

    both places has many cheap hotels and beach huts to rent.
    especially if you rent for longer periods.

    if i remember right then it's between 1 and 2 hours.
    there are a couple of nice neaches in between the 2 towns you might wanna have a look at aswell called zipolite and mazunte.
    they are very popular with the young backpacker crowd.

    I assume this makes more sense than flying to Huatulco, right?

    I think it doesnt merrer where you fly to. P. Angel is somewhere in the middle of P.Escondido and Huatulco. Just take a bus to pochutla (last year we payed 25 pesos from P.E., SUR company).
    In Pochutla just wait for a blue pick-up in front of the station. It will take you down to P.Angel for 5 pesos (taxi costs 50).

    Thanks, folks.
    Now I'll look into whether it's cheaper to fly to Escondido or Hualtulco.
    My impression is that Huatulco doesn't really have a "town" to stay in, just mostly big hotels. Is that about the size of it?

    Just a passing thought, but looking at your picture, it might not be a bad idea :-)

    Thanks, but the only reason I'm going there is to wash my hair.
