The weather in Puerto Escondido during the winter months is ideal. Skies are nearly always cloud-free. We have vacationed for 25 years in Hawaii, the Caribbean, Florida, Baja, and the Yucatan. Never have we experienced such consistently nice weather as we have in Puerto Escondido.
One of the first things you will notice is that the ocean temperature around Puerto Escondido is considerably warmer than other vacation areas you may have visited. Winter sea surface temperatures average 28º C, or 82½º F. That's 5½º F warmer than Hawaii and southern Florida, and even slightly warmer than the Caribbean waters.
Thanks to the scientists at the NOAA-CIRES Climate Diagnostics Center in Boulder, Colorado, for their data plots. Their Web site is most informative!
