“I still dream about Puerto... and estacion b...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 October 2012

We booked estacion b at the last minute, as it was the last place we could find with availability in the La Punta area. Talk about striking it lucky! We booked in for four days and ended up staying three weeks (and would have stayed longer if we could). After being on the road for nine months, we found our home away from home at estacion b in Puerto.

The place is gorgeous, a little Mexcian hacienda. The facilities are fantastic, the cabanas are clean and contemporary with fresh sheets and towels provided. There was always hot water, and plenty of places to hang out, under the big palapa or around the gardens in hammocks. There is a fridge stocked with cold beers and a big communal to sit around and talk surfing or about anything you like with your fellow guests. We ended up spending many nights sharing a few beers and chatting with our new found friends at that table. There is a kitchen for guests to use, as well as incredible cafe style food to order from the main kitchen, cooked by the enigmatic owner herself.

Maria-Elena is amazing, she took us in and treated us like family. We were lucky enough to be staying over Christmas and New Years and so were treated to two of Maria's famous Mexican dinner parties. I cannot recommend estacion b highly enough. La Punta is a chilled out village at the far end of the beach from the busier and more 'touristy' Playa Zicatela. So if you are looking for a cool place to hang out, surf, eat, make friends and enjoy the beautiful Pacific Coast of Mexico. This is it.

Perfectly located within 2 min walk from La Punta surf spot & from it's various restaurants and shops. There are several cabanas, all clean and nicely decorated, each with it's own spirit. If you are a couple, try the "love cabana". Separate kitchen and bbq spot to be used by guests. Fridge with cold drinks & beers. Do not miss to try awesome Marielena's home cooking for breakfasts and dinners (last year we did both - Christmas and New Year dinner and it was just great). You can always make new friends in common area with the long table and the hammacks. The atmosphere is so nice and friendly that It feels like your second home that you never wanna leave.

i have been travelling to puerto escondido since the end of the nineties, staying in different places.
since 1998 i stayed at this cabanas, in those days near the central andador, nowadays a rather messy walking stripe by the playa marinero.
the owner has relocated in the more quiet southern end of playa zicatela, renowned as la punta de zicatela, and her choice has been a wise move, since the surrounding have the better and more relaxed part of the famous surf beach.
add to this her grear home cooking, from breakfast to sandwiches to mega dinner, where she offers an unconventional mexican cuisine, mixing traditional dishes to innovative flavors, a top cook who has a great taste.
rooms have a nice decoration, with precious azulejos and shells been used in every detail, mosquito nets are included, cotton sheet (not a common feature in puerto escondido) and cozy common area are definitely another great point.
i suggest you to spend at least a week, in order to try a variety of the home dishes (not included) and share some interesting conversation with owner maria helena!
