Getting Here

Puerto School is located just meters above and overlooking the Pacific Ocean, Bungalows Zicatela and the world famous surfing beach, Playa Zicatela, the Mexican Pipeline. Our Spanish language school is on the ocean side of the coastal highway in front of "La Bodega de Cemento Cruz Azul", a big white building with a domed corrugated metal roof and a blue cross painted on it (see picture to the left). Most locals and taxi drivers know where "Cemento Cruz Azul" is. Directly across the street you will find signs for Instituto de Lenguajes Puerto Escondido and a set of stairs that lead to the beach. Another more general point of reference for Instituto de Lenguajes Puerto Escondido is the military base, "el Batallón" (marked as "Zona Militar" in the map below). Flown above the base is a huge Mexican flag that is visible from most parts of Puerto Escondido (see the map below and the photo to the left). The flag is a good point of reference when walking or traveling around Puerto Escondido.

If you're on Playa Zicatela, you can walk to the institute from the beach in less than 5 minutes. Just take the walkway that separates Bungalows Zicatela from Casa Baylon/Hotel Aro Iris and it will bring you right to the Spanish language school.
