Dawn Meditation
Beaches in Oaxaca Mexico range from the very rustic and nearly deserted Zipolite to the well-developed and nearly deserted beaches of Huatulco.
The exception might be at Christmas time when many Mexican families leave the cities and head to the beach.
The other exception would be the beaches at Puerto Escondido where surfers have made a legend of Zicatela Beach and the Mexican Pipeline and it is there that the November surfing championships are held.
Otherwise  Oaxaca's marvelous beaches at Puerto Escondido, Zipolite, Mazunte, Puerto Angel, and the 32 beaches of Huatulco are rarely crowded.

Beaches Oaxaca, Pacific Coast Beaches of Oaxaca State

Oaxaca's Pacific Coast Beaches lack an infrastructure that can handle large numbers of people and if they could there is still no easy way to get to most of the beaches on Oaxaca's Pacific Coast. Oaxaca State's best known beaches Huatulco and Puerto Escondido  have limited air service and the mountains make a bus or auto trip from Oaxaca City an 8-hour ordeal for all but the dedicated traveler.  
Oaxaca's Pacific Coast Beaches might be in for a change.  A new highway from Oaxaca City to the Isthmus of Tehuantepec will change things in 2012 making Huatulco a ten-hour drive from Mexico City and a four-hour trip from Oaxaca City.  
For now, however,  Oaxaca's Pacific Coast beaches are a quiet paradise  were you can dine on fresh grilled Dorado beneath a straw palapa and then stretch a hammock between some palms for a mid-day snooze.
