Mazunte is a family beach, where there is also the Mexican Turtle Center, a museum dedicated to the conservation of turtles. In addition, you can also find Mazunte Cosmetics, a natural and ecological cosmetics shop.
Mazunte Mazunte town offers all the basic facilities including grocery shops, butchers, fruit and veg shops, a hardware store, several internet cafes, laundry services, bakers, gift shops, including the Natural Cosmetics Shop and a Mescaleria. There are many great restaurants offering local and international food at all price ranges. The CMT (Mexican Turtle Centre) is situated in Mazunte. It is well worth a visit to see 7 of the 8 turtle species of the world and find out more about this gentle, endangered creature. Proceeds go towards conservation projects. Boat tours can be taken for around $250mx per person, well worth it, you are guaranteed to see dolphins, a turtle or two, rays and very often depending on the season, whales, they generally last 3 hours and finish with snorkeling around the rocks, really beautiful. For a second boat tour option try the tour from Puerto Angel that takes you south to various hidden bays. Punta Cometa. Mazunte is a place for those that love to live side by side with nature and a walk to Punta Cometa is a must. This protected headland is considered to be a very spiritual place and it is the best spot to see the dramatic sunset or to take a dip in the natural Jacuzzi when seas are calm. Mermejita. A 15 minute walk west will bring you to Playa Mermejita, a spectacular beach with a few low-key private houses and businesses, most run on solar electricity. This long, open beach is ideal for a leisurely walk, morning or evening run and perfect for dramatic sunsets. Look out for signs of turtle egg-laying. Definitely not recommended for swimming due to very strong rips/currents. La Ventanilla. 5km west of Mazunte you will find La Ventanilla, a small village dedicated to eco-tourism, fishing and coconut and palm plantations. The wide, open beach stretches 70km from here to Puerto Escondido and this is the most important breeding ground for the Olive Ridley turtle in Mexico. "Servicios Ecoturisticos de la Ventanilla"- look out for the men is white shirts with the crocodile logo, to be found on the left, 100 meters before the beach. They offer paddled canoe rides through the mangroves to observe crocodiles, iguanas and bird life. You will be taken on to a palm-fringed island where you can enjoy a cool coconut with traditionally prepared and cooked lunches, visit the crocodile museum and learn more about their conservation projects including: reforestation, turtle, crocodile and white-tailed deer conservation and habitat management. There is a small animal sanctuary where you have the opportunity to interact with some of Oaxaca’s cherished wildlife. At dawn, the estuary is perfect for bird watching and towards evening tourists can take part in the baby turtle release, ask at the tour office of "Servicios Ecoturisticos de la Ventanilla" for schedules. San Agustinillo Between Mazunte and Zipolite you will find the village of San Agustunillo. At the Mazunte end is the “bay”, a protected area providing good swimming and boogie-boarding waters, surrounded by palm-thatched restaurants and cafes. The long main beach is ideal for surfing, strolling and watching the sunset; this beach eventually leads to Aragón - a wild, open beach traditionally frequented by nudists but all are welcome. In the bay, you can find several beachfront restaurants all with wifi and the Coco-Loco Surf club (rental and classes). On the main street there are Cafes and restaurants all with Wi-Fi access, taco stalls and a great artisan shop. Check out the foreign language section in the volunteer-run lending library. Volunteers and materials are always welcome. Zipolite. A slow ride on the collectivo will bring you to the centre of Zipolite and Roca Blanca. Here you will find more bars and restaurants than anywhere else on the coast, as well as gift and clothes shops. The long, wide beach of Zipolite was infamous for its hippies, drugs and nudity back in the 70’s and 80’s although over the years the place has become more mainstream nudity is still quite common. Zipolite attracts tourists from all walks of life and is worth a visit. The beach is lovely, wading is safe but swimming here can be dangerous at certain times - look out for the warning flags or ask a local. Pina Palmera is an important rehabilitation centre, run completely on donations and by volunteers. They have an excellent gift shop at the entrance to Roca Blanca, well worth a visit. Puerto Angel. The old port and sleepy fishing village of Puerto Angel is a good place to pick up fresh fish, take advantage of the local Delicatessen, use the ATM/cashpoint (occasionally empty) and use as a base to visit the stunning beaches and bays to the east: Estacahuite (excellent for snorkeling, fresh seafood and swimming), La Mina (snorkeling) and La Boquilla (snorkeling, swimming and eating at the classy Bahia de la Luna hotel) I highly recommend a visit, exceptionally beautiful.

You should definitely come and check out Mazunte, with its beautiful beaches and its delicious food and joints to just chill and relax for as long as you can. There's also Punta Cometa, which is the longest point of the south side of Mexico and gives you a great view of the beaches and the sunset over the Pacific Ocean. It also holds the notable Museo de la Tortuga which was founded to protect sea turtles that had been endangered for a long time in these beaches before they became tourists attractions.
