Depends on how much beach time you want. 3 to 5 days probably is a typical stay for someone with multiple destinations upon their journey. There are lots of places to stay but it would really depend on your budget.

In contrast to you, I am heading to Oaxaca from PE this weekend :)

Lots of places to stay here for sure! PE is very quiet this year so you will have your choice. If i were you I would ask about a discount! We rented a house so made a commitment a while back, had i know it was so quiet here, i would have come without a reservation and tried to make a deal. There are many houses along the Rinconada that have for rent signs on them.

Good luck, have a good time, the weather has been extremely hot for this time of year 34 celcius yesterday and the day before.

Stay for two-three days depending on what you want to do. There's the tour of the Huatulco Bays by Catamaran which is worth it. Avoid the turtle boat trip as it is cruel. Go to playa Carrizalillo for a nice swim and to playa Marinero for excellent sea food.

Puerto has a very relaxed atmosphere. Try staying in Zicatela as there are many options for sleeping/eating/drinking/going out.

Be careful going to San Cristobal from Puerto, the roads are a little rough (people stopping coaches and so on), keep an eye on your luggage if you are going by coach, if driving, be careful not wind down your window too much.
