If livelier activities appeal to you, Puerto Escondido has much to offer: surfing and boogie boarding (lessons and rentals available), horseback riding, whale/dolphin-watching boat cruises, bird-watching lagoon cruises and fishing charters. Puerto has seven different beaches, each with its own unique character, some only a 10 minute taxi ride away from the house. As well, there are half- or full-day tours to a mountain waterfall by horseback, a coffee plantation, nearby bird and wildlife sanctuaries, fresh water lagoons or the sea turtle hatch and release stations.
Go for a jog on the beach and afterwards, enjoy a delicious fresh seafood lunch accompanied by a cold cerveza in one of Puerto Escondido's many on-the-beach, open air restaurants. Evenings, enjoy gourmet cuisine in any one of Puerto's several fine restaurants, some of which feature live music. After dinner, browse through the charming and well-stocked boutiques in the Adoquin shopping district where you'll find that perfect memento of your idyllic Puerto Escondido vacation.

Now retired, my husband and I live in "Casa Colibri Zicatela" - unless the house is rented in which case we have alternate living accommodations. We purchased our home in Puerto Escondido in 2011 and have put a great deal of time, effort and love into renovating, furnishing and decorating both house and garden, including installing a salt water pool for the enjoyment both of ourselves and of our rental guests.
We like traveling, entertaining friends, reading and watching movies. I am also a painter, using oils to portray landscapes, still life and portraits. Several of my original works form part of the decor of the house.
Our favourite travel destinations are Mexico, Italy, France, Ireland, Scotland and England.
We have between us five adult children and 4 grandchildren who visit us in both Mexico.
Ideal guests for Casa Colibri Zicatela are middle- to senior-aged couples but we are also happy to provide a fun vacation home for families with young children.
Puerto Escondido is so very unique among Mexican destinations. It is the authentic non-resort Mexico which offers the visitor its unique flavour of beaches, local customs and culture, food and natural attractions.
It is our hope that our guests will enjoy our home for its great location and its comfort and conveniences. It is ideal for folks who just want relaxation and leisure but it's also perfect for those planning an active vacation because of it's proximity to several beaches including the world famous Zicatela surfing beach and the fun and sun to be found on El Morro beach strip.
