I hitchhiked and bussed around Mexico for two weeks while living there. At one point I ended up in Puerto Escondido, one 6 room motel on the beach, few tourists, no paved roads, beautiful beach on a small harbor, wonderful people and you could pick out your fish from the fishermen as they returned with their catch, tag along to the restaurant and have it prepared, Paradise!! I rented a space in a perfect grove of palm trees bewteen four palm trees with a hammock hung diagonally which is where I slept. Outdoor shower and toilet for fifty cents a night. It was hard to leave.
