Where I stayed
The scenery remained much the same for the trip with tall pointed mountains on both sides of us covered with scrub trees and cactus. An overall brown appearance, it would have been much more colorful in the Spring I am sure. Just before dusk we began to follow the coast and of course this was just gorgeous with the setting sun.
Finally we reached Puerto Escondido and took a taxi to our chosen accomodations....chosen because of its proximity to the beach and its rustic description...Shar has such an adventuresome side. The Bungalows Acali is not actually on the beach; but it is just across the street from the beach. Each bungalow is made of dark woven wood and a thatched roof. There was a ceiling fan and a large mosquito net hanging above each of the beds. The bathroom had a sink with only cold water and the same was true of the shower. The toilet had a cracked top and rocked intriguingly when sat upon. To say that it functioned would be a bit generous; but it was all in all adequate for our needs. After all; these two have spent months on the Appalachian Trail and for $25 it was a deal...we thought. Yes we heard some music and laughter from the bar next door; but nothing you could not live with.....until after 11:00pm. That is when the crowd arrived and the music went up to sonic levels. Actually I really enjoyed the music. It had a great Latin beat and vocals and it sounded like the crowd was more than enjoying it. Enjoying it Enjoying it.....until 4 a.m. when they called it a night and everyone trickled away to get ready for surfing as soon as the sun came up. That is right. We are at Zicatelli..
