Chill little hotelito with small bungalows available. Food is really good, and is what attracted us to the place. A good alternative to the local Mexican food, which sometimes isn't cooked with the most healthy ingredients (i.e. manteca) :) Beach is closeby, but not so safe for swimming, but perfect for surfing as La Punta is closeby, which is one...

This place is great if you are a stoner surfer, but that's about it. Yes, it's hot and there are tons of bugs, but that's to be expected within the price range and location. The food is good and the common space is cute. My problem lies in the service. I found most of the staff unhelpful and cold. When... More

I booked 4 nights and in the end I spent over two weeks at Osa Mariposa. I enjoyed every single second there! The staff is super nice, the food is AMAZING and the peaceful vibe with the garden, hammocks and cats is just perfect to relax!

Puerto Escondido is a must do for everyone. For the chiller, surfer, soul searcher it is a second home. The place is full of relaxed people spreading super chilled vibes. I was only there for a weekend for a break from the city, but I am definitely going to return. La Punta is full of wicked fun little hostels and... More

Really enjoyed our stay, the room was small, but nice. Staff very helpfull and the ambience nice. Dinners are made by heart and a great way to meet people. The localization is a bit tricky, as its far from the center of playa zicatela and a 20 minutes walk from punta zicatela.

I had booked one night in Osa Mariposa in advance but ended up staying 4 nights there. Very friendly staff that helped me out a lot with tips for restaurants, beaches and other things to do, like yoga. Simple and nice vegan food. Very simple rooms, with fan and shared bathroom. Very hot and humid during the rainy season (I... More

If you want to get away from it all, this is the spot for you. Hippie compound with vegetarian menu and nightly vegan family dinners. Simple rustic rooms with mosquito net and fan. Walkable distance to Zicatela beach and no more than 30pesos a trip. 7pesos for a collectivo. It is removed from the main drag and surf, so keep... More
