Puerto Escondido, Oaxaca

The main reason we came to Puerto Escondido was to stay at Casa Tiny on Airbnb.

From the first time I saw this place on Instagram ages ago, I immediately added it to my bucket list, and as did everyone else. This home is booked out constantly but thankfully there was an opening for us around the time of our trip so we jumped on it! TBH, we didn't want to leave the home because it was just so perfect. It's a loft concrete home with a queen bed in the loft, a massive dinning area taking you straight to the outdoors, a swimming pool and a wood oven. You're about a 3 minute walk to the ocean but are surrounded by jungle. We went in September which is the rainy season in Oaxaca, so the jungle was in full bloom. Thankfully all our days were sunny and gorgeous.

Hands down we spent most of our time lounging in the pool. 


Probably one of the most magical moments was waking up to this jungle view in the morning. The sounds of the jungle were so loud but not in an annoying way but more of a soothing tone. I know it's hard to imagine but we loved it and of course set up the good ole tripod to capture a bit of it. 


The nearest building to Casa Tiny is Hotel Escondido. The first time we walked over there was for dinner which we had our first try of chapulines. It's almost a staple in Oaxaca, and yes, they are dried grasshoppers with spices. I had one, Jeff had 2 maybe 3. 


We also experienced one of the most surreal sunsets of our lives. Everyone at dinner got out of their seats and just stared out into the sky in awe. It looked as if the sky was on fire with a brilliant magenta.

Just passed Hotel Escondido you'll find Casa Wabi. This is an artist residency where you don't apply but are invited to spend time here working on your craft, getting to know the local community and giving back. They offer tours of their space, nursery, library and gardens every Wednesday and Saturday.
