Danza Costeña

The Fiestas de Noviembre is an annual event in Puerto Escondido. There are typically numerous events, with something happening almost every day during November and into the first week or so in December. Puerto Escondido is composed of two municipalities, one that includes Playa Principal and the downtown area and another in the Playa Zicatela area. Both municipalities participate in the Fiestas de Noviembre but the events are not coordinated. So there are often competing events taking place simultaneously in both areas. Zicatela events are often staged on Playa Zicatela just past Restaurante Sabor a Mar while the uptown events are often on Playa Principal or the municipal plaza or "City Hall" west of the playa.

Ear plugs are a good thing to bring to festival events. Sometimes things get loud, very loud. Below will be a partial listing of events when they are available. There are many, many events held during Fiestas de Noviembre.
