Puerto Escondido

View Mexico (Mainland III) on divatmotoros's travel map.

After Salina Cruz we progressed to Puerto Escondido and we enjoyed the clean and pretty small town on the oceanside. Much contrasting to Tulum here the streets are in much better shape, the buildings are well maintained and we felt much better with less crowds. The weather was also perfect, sunny, somewhat windy but really nice overall.


On Monday we went to support the turtle rescue organisation Vive Mar and to witness one spectacular step of their hard work protecting the beaches around Puerto Escondido. VIVE MAR means life in the SEAS, Mangroves, Birds and Reptiles. The organization is in charge of the conservation and protection of flora and fauna along 27 km of coastline. They work on 4 of the 7 species of sea turtles existing in the world, as well as bird conservation, mangrove reforestation, environmental education, organic agriculture, eco-techniques and a volunteer program that, in addition to contributing to the scientific world, we benefit local communities by promoting good environmental practices, their economy and education. They released over 650.000 sea turtles since 2011 and we also helped four little guys to reach the ocean.
