Our Honeymoon to Mexico: Part Three
|The beach in Mazunte|
From Oaxaca City we travelled to Mazunte, a small coastal town in Oaxaca province. We took a bus ride through the mountains and it took about 9 hours. We arrived to our secluded B&B.

The main beach had beautiful sunrises, and was safe to swim in (sunset beach had rip-tides). We spent most of our mornings on the beach reading, and swimming. Local women would come up and sell us ceviche and tamales. There's nothing better than fresh fish ceviche tacos, and tamales on the beach with beer.

Mazunte is a very small hippy town, that is only about 1 km in length. So we would walk up the main strip and get tacos. The tacos were definitely catered more to tourists than locals (except for those sold on the beach) but they were still really good. We lived off tacos for the 17 days we were in Mexico and I would give anything to go back.

Most of our time in Mazunte was spent relaxing by the beach, there wasn't as much exploring to do. However, in Oaxaca City we met a British girl who recommended we go whale watching and dolphin watching. She gave us the name of one of the tour guides. We managed to see sperm whales, turtles, and we went swimming with literally 200 wild dolphins. Mazunte is on the West coast of Mexico and is known for its wild marine life.
