Where is San Agustinillo, Oaxaca

With a number of enticing and way laid back places to stay for a few days on the beach or maybe longer, Playa San Agustinillo, Oaxaca is a good little beach spot for a vacation. Located on a curved bay, San Agustinillo has great waves. An ideal spot for to learn how to surf or bodyboarding, located between an outcrop of two rocks. Taking care to avoid the rocks, swimmers can enjoy this Pacific Ocean town with a couple good places to eat.

The small little beach and Mexican fishing village of San Agustinillo, Oaxaca can be found just eat of La Ventanilla and Mazunte. Its roughly 2.5 miles west of Zipolite on the road. Unsurprisingly, this beach community only has one road. The group of coastal communities is collectively referred to as “La Costa Chica Oaxaqueña” or the “Riviera Oaxaqueña.

where the Sierra Madre del Sur mountains meet the Pacific Ocean.

About the same time as its neighbor, Mazunte, the town of San Agustinillo in the Oaxaca state was formed. The local fisherman earned their daily bread by hunting sea turtles, until the ban in 1990. Currently, beach tourism is one of the few economic activities in the area.

Beach Vacation to San Agustinillo, Oaxaca

Since San Agustinillo is facing open ocean, some care needs to be given while swimming. The area considered the safest is to the west end, Playa Rinconcito.  In the other direction, Playa Aragon has good waves and an undertow. Maybe not for swimming when the surf is up. From the fun exotic beach, the waters of San Agustinillo are nice mixture of a tropical green and blue.

Some other simple pleasures for a potential beach vacation to this sleepy Mexican spot include boat tours or sport-fishing. Head to Playa Rinconcito to arrange either of these activities with some fisherman. There are a number of palapas for your beer drinking pleasure.

No huge resorts or super sized hotels are going to be built on the beach in San Agustinillo because the area is surrounded by cliffs and hills. Fortunately, it’s just not possible due to the topography. The area has a distinct Euro feel.


This project, Beach Spot, has been a lingering thought for nearly 20 years. It started on a crazy offshore Venezuelan island, Isla Margarita, during the first dot com craze. The idea evolved while life continually got in the way. A decade was spent on a Mediterranean island as well as a number of years chasing the sun in the USVI. Back living stateside in San Diego, this project will hopefully be an enjoyable look at a number of beach towns.
