Puerto Escondido

It seems like finding a tire for a KTM here is not easy. Vasile looked online to find a KTM dealer, and we found one in Villahermosa, which is not too close to us, but they did not have the tire he needed. They were supposed to email us with an answer whether they can order it for us or not, and a price. In the meantime, our friend Matt put a lot of effort in finding a way to ship us a tire, using the discount he gets as a pilot. Thanks Matt!

So while waiting for the email from the KTM dealership, we headed towards Puerto Escondido, since we heard a lot of good things about it.

We stopped for lunch at a really cool place, right passed the National Park Lagunas de Chacahua.





The food was incredible and the people really friendly. And here I am waiting for the food:



And the food comes:

Pescado al ajo (Garlic Fish)



Camaron a la diabla (Spicy Shrimp)



The owner showed us an add for some eco-tours in the area. The one that caught our attention was the one to the Lagunas where they had "lagartos" (crocs). That would have been interesting to see. But as we passed it, we decided not to turn back. I am sure we will have plenty of other occasions to see them, as we saw plenty of swamps in Mexico.

We kept riding in 36 C plus humidity, and we got to Puerto Escondido. And we were most impressed with it!











Funny enough, I've never heard of it before. The prices are very decent for a resort (not if you book it online though), and it is incredibly beautiful. It looks like it is a surfer's resort, and I can understand why. I've seen the biggest waves here.



In the evening we went for a walk on the beach and we stopped to have some drinks very romantically on the beach, at candlelight



The next day we called again the KTM dealership and we managed to order the tire we needed. So after Puerto Escondido, we will head towards Villahermosa to pick up the tire. It will probably take us about 4 days to get there, since we are planning to stop by Playa Escobillo as well, since apparently that's the place where most sea turtles come to lay their eggs. Maybe we will be lucky enough to see one.
