Puerto Angel is one of those, incredibly tranquil and extremely beautiful, fishing villages that still somehow, manage to exist in Mexico without much notice. Reminiscent of a far-off port, somewhere in the South Pacific, this area really is a step back in time. Maybe just few steps back - to the 60's and 70's era of the hippies, who have flocked here for decades. As in any town with a small population (under 4000), Puerto Angel lacks most of the amenities associated with modern resorts, with only a few hotels, most of which are fairly basic. You will not find any fancy restaurants here, but no lack of great food either. Fresh seafood, of all kinds is, of course, the local specialty. The overall atmosphere is very kicked back, and hopefully will manage to remain that way for many years to come.
Fishing is still very much a part of every day life in Puerto Angel as evidenced by the daily gathering of fishermen at the small pier on the main beach. There is an active panga fleet which is also a source of much of the local food supply.
