Concerned about water quality at local beaches? Beachgoers need not fear contamination according to the state health agency, which says Oaxaca has 15 certified clean beaches in the tourist destinations of Puerto Escondido, Puerto Ángel and Huatulco.
A report has been issued by Servicios de Salud de Oaxaca (SSO) as part of the Clean Beaches Winter 2022 program, designed to ensure that the beaches comply with World Health Organization (WHO) safety levels.
Seawater samples were taken from beaches at the three destinations over a two-week period in late November.
Testing determined that the beaches comply with the requirement that the water contains less than 200 (NMP) enterococci per 100 milliliters of water, which makes them suitable for swimming and other activities without any health risk.
