The shapes of the palapas among the lushness of Puerto Escondido are a clear example that, not because of its modesty, the architecture is less brilliant.
This idea could sum up the sensations I felt with respect to all Mexican culture. It is January 2020 and I find myself visiting this country for the first time. In the time that I am there, about three weeks, I learn about the wrong perception that we have of this country in the rest of the world, or at least in Europe.
And Puerto Escondido, one of its main towns, the well known secret of a paradise on Earth where, within the area of Casa Wabi (the artistic residence designed by Tadao Ando) you will find three little houses:
Casa Volta, Casa Cosmos and Casa Liebre. All them bathe on the shores of the Pacific, on a kilometer-long beach where each evening turns into a spectacle of pink, orange and blue tones.
Since their presence on this coast, Puerto Escondido has become a place to relax, where you can find yourself with enough time and space to read and enjoy endless walks on the beach. A place with everything needed and nothing else that can be completely open to nature, or be closed to privacy. Their doors are frames with spectacular views of the sea and the exuberant nature that surrounds it.
