I have to say, Puerto Escondido is pretty cool. Playa Zicatela is gorgeous, there are waves (although the surf hasn´t been that great since I´ve been here) and the party scene here is better than most places in Mexico. After arriving last Thursday, we went out and had a big night, then switched over to a 3 bedroom apartment that was pretty sweet for the rest of the week. It was called the "Hippy Room" as there were funky paintings all over the room.
To be honest, I don't have much to write because the last week has basically been spent just partying, chilling out in a hammock or on the beach, bodyboarding (because the surf wasn´t that great and I´m pretty out of shape, I didn´t end up getting a surfboard and got a bodyboard instead - still massive fun) and recovering from my drunken sojourns, so there´s not too much else to tell. The first few nights here were pretty mad, but after the weekend most of the tourists took off so it´s been a bit quiet since then. We also had our first incident of "Dangerous Mexico" when my Aussie mate got mugged by a Mexican with a tiny knife who grabbed a dollar out of his hand and ran away, which was a bit random.
Anyways, tonight we´re taking a 12 hour overnight bus to San Cristobal de Las Casas, then jumping on another 5 hour bus to Palenque to see the Mayan ruins and hike through jungles to get to waterfalls.
