I arrived on the small island peninsula of Isla de la Piedra near the port of Mazatlán, Mexico in 2014. It was in the early days of my freelance travel writing career. And I immediately fell in love with what I experienced and decided to call it my winter home.
As a part-time expat, I spend my winters in Mexico. And, while I have a home on the central Pacific coast, there’s another part of this vast, varied country that I’m drawn back to visit year after year, thanks to its affordability, beauty, cleanliness, people, and great vibe. It’s the town of Puerto Escondido in the state of Oaxaca.
