San Agustinillo, Mazunte, and Ventanilla Mexico Photos

On the Oaxacan Coast in Mexico there are a few different beaches and small towns, all with their own feel and attractions. Puerto Angel is mainly a fishing town, Zipolite is a nude beach full of young hippies, Mazunte is beautiful national park popular with backpackers, San Agustinillo is a tranquil little town with more upscale accommodation, and Ventanilla is the start of popular crocodile tours in the nearby mangroves. All of these beaches lie a short shared pick up or taxi ride away from each other, making it easy to explore all of them on a Oaxaca beach vacation.
