This bohemian beach exudes Oaxacan authenticity and offers a gorgeous coastal landscape replete with watercolor-like hues that swirl across the sky at dawn and dusk. Behind the silky sand, which slopes into the powerful baby-blue waves of the Pacific, is the charming community of Mazunte where an engaging collection of musicians, writers, and other artists create a captivating local culture. The limited technological capacities of this small beach town add to the ambiance, as you’re required to unplug and connect with Mother Earth.
