Lagunas de Chacahua is about as far off that beaten path as you can get, friends. Located between Puerto Escondido and Huatulco, this village sits on the channel that strings Chacahua Lagoon to the Pacific.
Beach bums, backpackers, and chasers of chill all hang in harmony on this rugged beach, a surfer’s paradise where Australians flock annually to chase massive waves.
Come suppertime locals and visitors gather on “Restaurant Row,” a string of ubiquitous beach shacks and bars slinging various versions of the same ceviche or fish taco.
Don’t expect to lay your head anywhere too luxurious in Chacahua — bungalows reign supreme here, and are usually made from bamboo and palm fronds and available on a first-come, first-serve basis (the internet is somewhat nonexistent here). On the plus side, they can be rented for as little as 100 pesos a night.
