Details & Itinerary

Escape to a magical island in the National Park of Chacahua with Eco Adventures Puerto Escondido!

Chacahua is one of the most beautiful, underrated, and unique places in Oaxaca, Mexico and even the world.

In this experience, you’ll cross through mangrove labyrinths by boat to arrive at this magical island. There you’ll have the opportunity to enjoy traditional food, Afromexican culture, and breathtaking views.

We’ll hike to Chacahua’s “arc of love” for a spectacular sunset. On the trip back, we’ll stop at the lagoon and swim in bioluminescence* to end the experience in the most magical fashion.
