El Pantero Strikes Again

Everyday around noon, El Pantero emerges from the water in front of Playa Carrizalillo with a sack of freshly picked oysters. Nicknamed The Panther for his lean physique and black wetsuit he wears when emerging from the water, he’s been serving up fresh oysters for as many years as we have been enjoying the waters in Puerto Escondido.

We wander down with our towels from our perch atop Villas Carrizalillo, find the perfect spot on the beach for lunch, and order up a dozen.

Friendly beach-side service.

Some limes and a bottle of hot sauce are all that’s needed for these succulent beauties that have a slightly chewy texture similar to abalone or scallop.

Ice cream awaits for later in the afternoon. Coconut and Nescafe are favourite flavours.
Sunsets demand the Villas’ exclusive mezcal, Fidencio. It’s sin humo, meaning it is roasted in a neutral heat oven without smoke, making it ideal for sipping or in a cocktail.
