For me, the bay of Puerto Escondido has been the most beautiful place we have stayed on this journey to date. Picture this.

Starting with the bay itself. Being connected to the sea by a narrow passage, it looks almost like a salt-water lake. There are small sounds on its East and Northwest sides, each with a mini mangrove and brilliant green shallow waters.
But what gives magic to this place is the background. The bay is located at the footsteps of the Giganta mountain range – towering rocky formations, in a multitude of layers of different colors and shapes. It is truly dramatic.
The bay is also home to a thriving fauna – fish in particular. At night, we would hear the splashes of fish jumping out of the water. And during the day, schools of flying fish would cross the calm waters of the bay.
Nearby, there is the picturesque Isla Danzante, with the scenic Honeymoon Cove. We visited there with our dinghies for a hike with spectacular views. Stay tuned for the update tomorrow.
