Welcome to my Oaxaca home! I don’t usually stay in hotels when I am in town but for the past 2 years that I’ve been coming back and forth, here are the best Puerto Escondido hotels I can recommend!
When choosing where to stay in Puerto Escondido, the first thing that you should understand is the layout. Puerto Escondido is not a small town so make sure to know the distance of the hotel to the center before booking.
Many hosts or Puerto Escondido hotels won’t really explain the layout – it’s not their job to do so anyway. What you can do is make popular landmarks a point of reference.
My centric location recommendations that are on Google Maps are Playa Zicatela, Brisas de Zicatela, and Puerto Escondido Centro. Simply put these locations on Google maps, click directions and type in the hotel address you want to book.
But this is only for those who want to stay near the nightlife, bars, and restaurants.
If you want a peaceful vacation in Puerto Escondido, you can look in the areas of Rinconada, Bacocho, and Esmeralda. I know you won’t really get to understand the Puerto Escondido layout on Google maps right away, especially if you haven’t been.
If you’re having trouble and doubts with your hotel location, get in touch with me and I will walk you through it!
What to expect from Puerto Escondido hotels
Hotels in Puerto Escondido usually have pools and have ocean views. There are many luxury hotels but if you’re on a budget or visiting Puerto Escondido as a digital nomad, boutique hotels are your best options.
Honestly, the private rooms in Puerto Escondido hostels are pretty decent too. However, note that hostels are located in the party areas so it can get loud.
You may need transport if you’re staying in luxury hotels. You can simply rent a car at Puerto Escondido Aiport. If you don’t want to go through all the rental car booking shebang, taxis (not Ubers) in Puerto Escondido are very cheap, too.
Most hotels in Puerto Escondido are only for adults so make sure to check if children are allowed before booking. Some of them include that information on the listing but some of them don’t. Better ask first!
The easiest way to book your Puerto Escondido hotel
If you can speak Spanish, you can directly call the hotels for reservations. I included the phone numbers of my favorite Puerto Escondido hotels below.
Some speak English but most of them don’t. And if they do, I am sure you are going to have a hard time understanding each other on the phone.
Walking in when you are already there is not very ideal since Puerto Escondido hotels are always fully booked.
Are hotels in Puerto Escondido expensive?
Puerto Escondido hotels are affordable for what they are. They are not overpriced like Tulum or Cancun. Luxury resorts start from $400 USD per night (with breakfast and pool but not all-inclusive).
Boutique hotels are priced at $45 – $60 USD. You might think this is cheap for accommodation but by Mexican standards, these are really good accommodations.
