Laguna de Manialtepec

Laguna de Manialtepec Review

One of the easiest day trips from Puerto Escondido is the wildlife preserve of this lagoon, about 14 km (9 mi) from the center of town. It's a birder's paradise, with pelicans, hawks, hummingbirds, and spoonbills in the surrounding mangrove forests. Although an inexpensive half-day tour from Puerto Escondido is the most convenient way to visit, you can also drive or take public transportation and hire a boatman to the lagoon's beaches and restaurants.
