Puerto Escondido is best known as home to the “Mexican Pipeline”, one of the top 10 surf breaks in the world. Surfers can find decent waves to ride here almost 365 days a year. Because of the various shapes and sizes of the beaches and breaks, both professionals and beginners feel comfortable in the water.
Not only is Puerto Escondido a major destination for water sports, but is also a great spot to stay if you want to visit any of the nearby lagoons, waterfalls, hot springs, mountains, rivers and villages that surround it.
The OSA MARIPOSA serves as an alternative oasis to travelers who want to visit the beach and enjoy a relaxed, peaceful environment without losing access to the city and all it has to offer. We are situated in a quiet, residential neighborhood made up of sandy streets, fruit trees, small shops and smiley faces. Just two blocks (100 meters) to the beach and halfway between the two best surf breaks (Zicatela and La Punta), barely a three minute walk to the highway the hotelito is well situated for many activities. Commuting to the center of town (banks, bus stations, super market) takes no more than about 7 minutes in taxi or local bus and, of course, walking along the beach is an option as well. Our neighborhood is developing rapidly. You can find various internet cafes, mini-supermarkets, restaurants, diners, yoga classes, surf shops, movies and more.
