Salina Cruz to Puerto Escondido GPX Route


Drive along the coast from Salina Cruz to the famous beaches of Puerto Escondido.


Follow the coastal areas of Oaxaca from Salina Cruz to the touristy beach town of Puerto Escondido.
A long highway loosely following the coast once you get past the mountain range near Salina Cruz.

Salina Cruz is a touristic town full of young tourists. Many go there to surf. The beaches are large and golden brown. Which we really liked.
Along the cliff lined coast you’ll find a bunch of smaller bays and coves where you can either swim or surf and the beaches there are usually lined with restaurants where you can grab a beach chair and cold drinks.

In the POI you’ll find the hotel/posada we stayed in for a few nights. It was terrible in many ways – I’d recommend finding a different place to stay.
