Sadly we left Oaxaca but GLADLY for the beach! Thanks to Graham and his generous Xmas gift to us all, we didn't have to take the 7 hour barf shuttle to Puerto Escondido but a quick 1/2 hour jaunt straight South in a 6 seat plane. WAIT! SIX SEATS AND THAT INCLUDES THE PILOT??!! When we arrived at the airport, I had no idea what we were in for. The man who checked us in told us we had too much luggage and that it would be too heavy for the plane. However, a monetary bribe seemed to make our luggage A LOT lighter. We boarded so quickly that I didn't have time to panic. Graham sat in the co-pilot seat. It was 30 minutes of sheer terror and excitement.
We landed safely and the pilot hopped out and even called us a taxi. We immediately felt the HEAT and were ready for the ocean. Well, Graham and I were, not so much Tages. The beach is not Tages's idea of a good time with all the sand and dirty sea water that comes with it. She would rather watch Cartoon Network in an air conditioned hotel.
We spent 4 glorious
that's our plane
no safety instructions, no barf bags...
days at the beach filled with swimming, surfing, crazy waves, coco locos, and rental beach chairs with umbrellas and ocean side service. The first two nights were spent in a cheap hostel but it was super dirty and the staff creeped us out so we spent our last night in a nice hotel right across from Playa Zicatela.
