Puerto Escondido to Oaxaca de Juarez GPX Route


An exciting ride from Puerto Escondido to Oaxaca de Juarez through high mountain ranges and arid landscapes.


Leave the beaches of Puerto Escondido behind and traverse right through the middle of Oaxaca state towards the Capital Oaxaca de Juarez, Or Oaxaca for short.
Ride along the coast to Pochutla and turn left onto the highway northeast which leads through a mountain range and embark on the twisties which last for over 120 kilometers. Rising up to almost 4000 meters above sea-level.On the other side you come out onto arid plains leading to Oaxaca de Juarez.

Caution: The high altitude stretches may be covered in heavy fog. We drove about 40-60km with zero visibility on the higher elevation parts solely relying on GPS directions. I’ve marked the approximate location where we ran into this on the POI map.

Originally we had a different track in mind, but the roads were impassable due to landslides. Check out track t032 if you want to give it a go.
