Surfing at Puerto Escondido
The Mexican Pipeline or Puerto Escondido lures in the top surfers in the world, being one of the worlds best surfing destination. It hosts the Mexpipe Challenge in February and an international surf contest in November. Small and big waves alike are available for both professional and amateur surfers. Beach lovers can also take a pick from many beaches in Puerto Escondido excluding the Playa Zicatel which has strong rip tides and the worlds most powerful waves that are even stronger than the famous Hawaii Banzai Pipeline. Even the most professional surfers have suffered accidents here so extreme caution is required for even the very experienced surfers. The Point is another popular surfing area with a rapid and tough surf ride. The Far Bar at the end of the beach break is another surfing area with the most surfers since the waters there is deeper than other areas and the waves break further from the shore. Puerto Escondido is a must in the Mexico vacation itinerary of avid surfers.
