Table of contents

I’m Marine, thrilled to share with you my tips and tricks for fully enjoying the early evenings in this magnificent enclave on the Pacific coast of Mexico. Discovering a new facet of this city every day has been a continuous adventure, and I’m eager to guide you through a week of enriching experiences.


Monday: Atardecer at Zicatela and Rinconada

To start the week beautifully, nothing surpasses an Atardecer at Zicatela or Rinconada. At Zicatela, the beach comes alive with wild beauty under the last rays of the sun, while at Rinconada, the view is simply breathtaking at its peak. You can also admire this natural spectacle from La Punta beach. It’s the perfect introduction to the serenity and beauty of Puerto Escondido.


Tuesday: Dinner at Alivo Ristorante

On Tuesday, let me take you to Alivo Ristorante for an unforgettable evening. This restaurant, nestled in La Punta, offers authentic Italian cuisine in the most romantic setting. Their specialty, “Spaghetti ai Frutti di Mare,” is a dish I highly recommend for its freshness and explosion of flavors.


Wednesday: Cultural Immersion at the Adoquín

Wednesday evening is ideal for immersing yourself in the local culture at the Adoquín. Discover authentic Oaxacan cuisine in the restaurants of this lively area. To add a touch of festivity to your evening, I suggest finishing at Congo for a lively Mexican night.


Thursday: Culinary Variety and Karaoke at Punta Origen

On Thursday, Punta Origen becomes the stage for a diverse evening, offering both a culinary experience with various food trucks and quality entertainment with karaoke. It’s the perfect place to enjoy delicious dishes and have a friendly evening.


Friday: Gastronomic Exploration at Rinconada

On Friday, Rinconada invites you to an exceptional gastronomic exploration. This area is renowned for its upscale restaurants, each offering a unique experience. The salsa evening at PM Restaurant adds a vibrant dimension to the culinary experience. I highly encourage you to explore the richness of Oaxacan flavors here.


Saturday: A Memorable Dinner

On Saturday, whether at Zicatela or La Punta, prepare for a memorable dinner. These places are the heart of gastronomy in Puerto Escondido, offering a variety of dishes that will satisfy even the most discerning palates.


Sunday: Friendly BBQ at Punta Vida

Finally, on Sunday, nothing beats the traditional barbecue at Punta Vida to conclude the week. It’s an opportunity to savor exquisite grills in an idyllic setting, marking the end of a week rich in discoveries and pleasures.

As a long-time resident, I’ve had the privilege of experiencing these magical moments, and I’m delighted to share them with you. Every early evening in Puerto Escondido is a new adventure, a chance to discover the beauty and diversity of this extraordinary city.
