4. Markets

The towns and villages of Oaxaca, Mexico have traditional markets offering fresh produce, groceries, flowers, meats and more. These markets are often held on specific days where fresh produce is brought in to sell to locals and visitors. The market in Puerto Angel is held on Mondays along with the Pochutla market, located 10 kms from the Viewpoint development. Head further up the coast where you can also visit the market in Puerto Escondido, held on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

5. Spanish Lessons

Expand your knowledge with a Spanish lesson.  There are many little beachside places where you can enrol and take lessons all along the coast.  Playa Zipolite has a great place that you can take classes.  We’d be happy to arrange this for you during your stay at Viewpoint.
