Playa Zicatela information
Long, straight Zicatela is Puerto Escondido’s happening beach, with enticing cafes, restaurants and accommodations, as well as the waves of the legendary Mexican Pipeline. Most of the action, including the Pipeline, is at Zicatela’s northern end (nearest town). Nonsurfers beware: the waters here have a lethal undertow and are not safe for the boardless. Lifeguards rescue several careless people most months. The Punta Zicatela area at Zicatela's far southern end also has decent surf, and a mellower vibe.
