Puerto Escondido is one of the most unique areas on the Oaxacan coast, in the southwest of Mexico. Here you will find the opportunity of learning both the language and the traditional culture, while also enjoying the magnificent beaches of its coastline.

Oasis Surf & Language School is located in Rinconada, a quiet neighbourhood with an eclectic choice of restaurants, shops and supermarkets. Our home beach "Carrizalillo" is just a 5 minutes walk away from our homebase. If you would like to discover the other beaches of Puerto Escondido, they are just a short (and very inexpensive) taxi or collectivo ride away.

The Place

Oasis Surf House provides accommodation in one of our 2 Surf Houses...

La Barca Surf House, a complex of 11 private units, is a combination of cozy one bedroom suites to larger family apartments with each unit having a distinctive name and providing a unique experience. Individual terraces, fully equipped kitchen, and large, comfortable common area with swimming pool are just some of the amenities the house offers.

Named after magnificent mango trees in the front yard, Mango Surf House hosts 4 cozy, fully equipped 1 or 2 bedroom private apartments each with their own terrace. Both of our Surf Houses are ideally located near the town center and within convenient walking distance from the school, the beach and cozy bars and restaurants. All utilities as well as unlimited bottled drinking water, coffee, WiFi, and 3 x weekly cleaning service are included in your stay at La Barca and Mangos.

During our summer swell season, we also offer guided surf trips to our southern coast. Please note that the shared rooms listed for Barra de la Cruz and Salina Cruz are ONLY for these surf trips and are not located in Puerto Escondido.

How did you like the accommodation?


We stayed in the Mango House which was perfect for us, and a 5 minute walk from the school and la Barca house (for fitness classes and other activities). It is a 2 bedroom apartment with a great kitchen and bathroom. It overlooks a couryard with beautiful mango trees. It is located very centrally, near the restaurants and grocery shops, but away from the tourist areas. The location is residential, across the street from a school, a huge new church, and a public gathering place. Roger's family lives in this complex, so you don't feel like an isolated tourist. The apartment does not have air conditioning, but the ceiling fans provide much needed relief from the heat. We were never too hot once they were turned on. Mini, who cleaned the apartment every second day, was always smiling and a joy to speak to.

Puerto Escondido (PE): This is still a truly Mexican town. There are no American hotel chains or restaurants in sight. You can walk virtually everywhere, or take a taxi if you wish to go to some of the less central beaches like La Punta. There are smaller beaches like Carrizalillo and Puerto Angelito with beach side restaurants and bars, or the main surf beach, Zicatela, lined with top quality restaurants and nightlife. The public transportation in and out of PE is reliable and frequent. The restaurants are excellent. You can choose between street side tacos and elegant dining. The only different is the price. The quality was pretty consistent at every restaurant. There are also great things to do without going too far out of town.

How did you like the surf lessons?


The lessons were semi-private: one teacher for my husband and me, and one for the kids. However, on the first day each of our children had their own instructor. I assume that this was to ensure the competency of our kids in the water - a much appreciated gesture. We learned so much and had a blast. The instructors (Chris, Barci and David) were excellent and fun to be with. With safety always on the top of their minds, they provided enthusiastic lessons and constant feedback. Although the lessons are semi-private, the school's other students and instructors are at the same surf spot each day. This provides for a fun and encouraging environment. One of the best beginner spots was very busy, so the school opted to take us to a quieter surf beach, which we had virtually to ourselves. It was nothing short of awesome. A photographer was on site each week taking beautiful photos. These were for the Friday night dinner and feedback session with Roger and the instructors (excellent as well), and are also wonderful souvenirs of our trip. Sol and Roger run a top quality and very professional business in an authentically Mexican city. They have a wonderful team of surf instructors, Spanish teachers, and other staff. We hope to return again next year!!!

How did you like the accommodation?


I booked the 2 weeks Surf package in a month of advance and got to stay at La Barca Surf House. If I could I would stay here longer. Roger, Sol, and the front desk girls (Betty and Annina) did a fantastic job accommodating my needs. Some people chose home stay, mango house, or stayed near La Punta but I liked La Barca for the convenience. It's only a 3 minutes walk to the Oasis school and is really close to the strip of shops, minimarkets, and restaurants on Benito Jaurez.

How did you like the surf lessons?


The school offers 3 classes: 7am, 10:30am, and 3pm. The 7am surf lessons were my favorite - not too hot and the sun doesn't blind you when you're waiting in the lineup facing the waves. Depending on the swells, we'll surf behind the school at Playa Carrizalillo or ride the school's trucks to La Punta. All of the instructors are talented and passionate about surfing. They'll pick waves best suited to your level and protect you against some crazy kooks. For most of my 2 weeks stay, Barchi was my surfing instructor and I had a grand ol' time getting to know Puerto's El Capitan Torpedo. I'll definitely be back for more surfing lessons in the future!

"It is called the Mexican Pipeline, and for good reason. Tucked into a curving part of the southern half of Mexico's Pacific Coast, Zicatela is the main surf beach in Puerto Escondido. Like a machine, it produces perfect wave upon perfect wave." With beaches suitable for all levels, transparent warm water with perfect waves, Puerto is a great surfing destination that you must try!

Main Surf Beach: La Punta de Zicatela, Carrizalillo beach
