Hi Wenna. Try http://maps.google.com/
I don't know which Puerto Escondido you are talking about so can't give you any advice. Go to the Google map site above and click on Directions. Type in your starting point and your ending point and you will get a map.
If you click on the map, you can adjust the route if you want to do some sightseeing en route.
Enjoy your trip. Victoria, BC is spectacular.
Were you planning on driving from Victoria to Puerto Escondido in Mexico, south of Acapulco? That's a really long way...surely 3,000 miles as the crow flies and a lot more by car...
Its certainly do able....I crossed paths with a man once south of Escondido in Mazunte...and he drove down from Bremerton every year and had been doing this for about ten years..Its not that long if you don't have to be anywhere in a hurry..:o)
Travel Tips for Puerto Escondido
PJ´s book bodega.
PJ´s book bodega is a bit of many things.
It´s a second hand bookstore with a great selection of second hand books.
It´s also a cinema showing movies of all kinds in the cinema room and it often turns in to a bit of a bar at night as the owner tends to bring a few dozens beer to the place and he sells them cheap and is great comapny, so it often becomes the hangout place for a sunset :O)
well, once again, hit the waves
Surf, body board, body surf. Just hit the waves if you can.
I didn't score the huge big puerto pits, but will go back there one day and hope to get them then. Surfing: Big boards, pintails, guns, get the pic????
Bodyboarding, stiff baord, with stringers, it is hot, your board will get soft.
Take a tour of the Manialtepec...
Take a tour of the Manialtepec laguna, it is a beautifull lagoon with a lot of bird and wildlife and lot's of plants and flowers.
The hidden voayage eco tours (www.wincom.net/~pelewing/hvecotur.html) has good tours, you can choose between a few. Just take the one that will suit you.
Go and take the tour, you won't be dissapointed
A good place to chill out for a few days
"From calm little bays to..."
In Puerto Escondido you can take your pick of beaches: little bays with calm waters for swimming like Playas Manzanillo and Carrizalillo, or even Playa Principal (if you don't mind the crowds and the boats). Or long and wide windswept beaches with pounding waves for surfers, like Playa Zicatela.
The climate is tropical (hot and humid), so you ought to keep yourself near the ocean or the pool, or risk melting into your sandals! And this is especially true at mid-day.
PE is a laid back town where Mexicans vacation with their family and fishermen still go out fishing in the morning (and give boat tours to tourists in the afternoon).
It's not Cancun, but it's definitely not undiscovered! Fortunately prices are still at Mexican (not international) levels, and that means you can rent a beach chair for $2 for the whole day.
There is a good selection of restaurants and many shops selling handicrafts and beach wear on the main (tourist) drag: Perez Gasga. Some visitors spend several weeks here, so they may need to build a wardrobe I guess... bikinis, sarongs, sundresses... :-)
Playa Zicatela is a world renown surfers beach, and swimming is not recommended. Watch the waves for a little while and you will understand why. Since it faces west it offers beautiful sunsets.
Like Playa Principal, the main street runs along it with its contingent of hotels, restaurants and shops, although here the shops are geared more toward the surfer's need rather than the casual swimmer. You can walk for kilometers along this beach!
I WILL ADD SOME TIPS SOON. DO COME BACK!
