I am exhausted of talking about bus travel now so let's focus on the beach. En Route to Acapulco I spent two glorious days in Puerto Escondido, Mexico and almost couldn't bring myself to leave. It is an amazingly backpacker friendly beach with great surf.
This is the life
I even got the chance to test out the Olympus in the ocean and got some good surf pics. Of course right after taking the pics I got crushed by the waves.
I even got some from my board.
Even on a Sunday the town has some nightlife and live music. The guy on the right has an epic mustache.
If you are backpacking through I recommend staying at the Mayflower it is an easy life there.
