The little woman and I, well mainly I, have been looking at places to just get away from it all for a month or months. Just not feeling like working this winter. I work outside.

I really wanted to head to Tahiti or Thailand but the prices are a little steep. I've been researching this for awhile, Fiji, Peru, Brazil, Morocco, and always seem to come back to Puerto for best price, location, and waves. I've never been in waves any larger than that I make in the bathtube so want something I can bodyboard on.

You know, I just want to go somewhere tropical, laid back, safe, that isn't touristy.

I just keep coming back to this hidden secret it seems.

Anyone ever been there?

Hi there,
Pto Escondido is not a bad choice at all! Of course there is tourism around, but it's still less "touristy" than Cancun or Los Cabos. Nice beaches, great waves. Check more at Puerto Escondido Information

Fiji is a great choice, too, if you're starting from LA. It's not nearly as expensive as Tahiti.

Have a great trip!
