6 weeks Coliving & Coworking along Mexico's Pacific Bay
Get ready to feel the sun on your skin and let loose to beach waves at one of our most charming destinations. Coastal lagoons, exotic fish, and several species of turtles make Puerto Escondido the ideal place for surfing, snorkeling and diving. There's no doubt why Puerto Escondido is a sought-after destination by locals and expats alike!
Surfing In The Pacific
Get your surfboard ready to hit the waves at Playa Zicatela. With waves as high as 6 meters, the swell in Playa Zicatela is among the best in the world. It’s not a mystery why Zicatela is frequently hosting state, national and international surfing competitions.
Playa Marinero is another world class surf spot commonly frequented by surfing and bodysurf enthusiasts – and its smaller waves are ideal for beginners. The picture-perfect turquoise waters at Marinero make it a popular destination for sunset horseback riding as well.
Rejoice In That Beach Life
Puerto Escondido is surrounded by transparent warm waters with a variety of beaches that cater to every taste. Playa Principal - the closest one to town- boasts fine textured sands and the chill swell makes it a perfect spot for swimming. Not only that, but this beach is also where most fishermen arrive with the catch of the day.
If isolated beaches are your jam, Carrizalillo is a better option. Flanked by rocky structures this beach is perfect for those who enjoy diving or snorkeling. The descent through the steep staircase is well worth it!
By foot, canoe, horse or scooter?
Just a short drive away from Puerto Escondido, you'll find one of the most magical places in the world. Laguna Manialtepec is a rarity, bringing together salty water from the ocean, sweet water from the river and thermal springs from deep underground. But that’s not where it ends – the surface of the lagoon is surrounded by mangroves and covered by bio-luminescent plankton, which makes it a very attractive night show.
Or how do you feel about going on a nice hike?
Savor Amazing Food
No trip to Mexico is complete without taking a moment to sample tacos directly from the source. But beyond just mind-blowing tacos – in Puerto Escondido you can eat freshly caught seafood while sipping margaritas right on the beach!!

Our Home in Puerto Escondido
We'll be calling an eleven-bedroom lodge our home in Puerto Escondido, including a number of ensuite. It's the 2nd time we'll be staying here and we've selected this lodge specifically with COVID front of mind – the ideal set-up during times with lots of outdoor community space: shared terrace, pool and beds and a balcony upstairs with standing desks to work from (instead of a chair, you can sit on a swing as well)
We are going to stay downtown Puerto Escondido (the area is called Brisas de Zicatela), only 5min walking distance from the beach, which makes it really easy to go for morning run on the beach or an evening swim with the sunset. (Due to Covid the beach access might be restricted, we'll keep an eye on it)
The accommodation comes equipped with good internet, AC, open common areas for work, ..a Coliving setup that will make is easy for us all to be productive, feel comfortable, and have the freedom to explore this amazing country!
