We’ll be honest – we’ve been getting a little jealous in the office that two insanely lucky people who win our #MeForMexico competition are going to be jetting off to (damn-even its nickname’s cool) ‘The Land of Enchantment’.
So we started dreaming up our perfect day in Mexico for when (not if, when) we get to go.
Get up early. We know – we all love a lay in, but come on people, the sun’s up and we’re in Mexico!
Head to Puerto Escondido, Oaxaca. It’s a low-key fishing village and port with a unpretentious beach that’s all about the waves.
It’s best for advanced surfers, but hey, if the waves get too crazy we can grab some breakfast at Carmen’s Cafecito – a buzzy breakfast spot serving pastries, juices and local specialities.
What better way to spend the afternoon then on an exhilarating scenic drive on the back of none other than our beautiful Bonnie (we’d have got her there somehow)! Purring our way up the windy mountain roads, we’d head towards a tiny café, recommended by some mates, for some authentic Mexican grub. At La Olita at the top of the hill of Avenida Las Brisas we’d devour some phenomenal tasting fish tacos, washed down with a cheeky Mezcal cocktail.
So we’ve surfed and enjoyed a ride – now it’s time to find some beats! For this we’re heading down to under a set of shady palm trees on Marinero beach. Promoting ‘Blues, Beer and BBQ’ – this is the place to grab a plastic chair, dig our toes into the sand and dive into a rib dinner with the locals. Yes. Please.
What would your perfect day include?
