Would you recommend 6 Caucasian people travel by car from Oaxaco to Puerto Escondido? I was there a few years ago and flew between the two.please advise.

How does passenger skin color factor into the equation?

I'm sorry if I offended anyone about skin color. A Mexican friend thought it might be more dangerous for them.

My husband and I drove from Bahias de Huatulco up to Zihua 10 years ago. A wonderful route. Be sure to stop in Puerto Angel and drive down to the beach for a freshly caught fish taco. We were disappointed in the beach at Puerto Escondido and found it flat but interesting tourists, especially from Europe. If you go further up, stop at the market in Pinotepa Nacional. Totally different local crafts.

We drove highway 131 from Puerto Escondido several years ago without any problems. Highway 200 down the coast has many speedbumps, many of which were not marked. Probably not any harder on out Honky butts, than on the locals'.

We drove our RV many times down from Oaxaca to the coast, as early as 1980, taking both roads down, to Puerto Escondido and Puerto Angel. The scenery is amazing and driving through a cloud forest is great, to say nothing of the coffee plantations and the banana fields.

It's not many miles driving, but it is many hours.

Being "white" shouldn't be an issue anywhere. Many many of the people who were born and raised here are whiter than many of the gringos.
