Puerto Escondido is Mexico's picturesque coastal town with vibrant nightlife and pristine beaches with rocky cliffs, also known as the Emerald Coast.
Before the 1930s, there was nothing but wild nature here. Today, it's one of the biggest tourist attractions on the Oaxacan coast, with some of the best surfing spots in the world. For example, Zicatela Beach hosts famous surfing competitions.
Grupo Habita's newest creation, Hotel Terrestre, sits between Puerto Escondido's mountains and ocean in an intimate environment surrounded by nature.
The hotel's green credits are remarkable. The building's structure uses locally sourced materials, and 100% of the energy comes from solar power. Even the cooling system uses creative building techniques rather than air conditioners.
