There's no doubt that Puerto Escondido will be partying until the sun comes up during the Mexpipe Challenge Surf Carnival that will be taking place between February 16-20th, 2007.

This year the ASP sanctioned event will not only be a surfing contest, but will also host a 'carnival' with awesome bands and concerts. If that isn't enough for you, then the Puerto Escondido National Music Festival will also be peaking at the same time. So kick back to some tunes after an exciting day at the beach or catch one of the special fashion shows that will be held during the evenings.

Carnival will be in full swing during the Mexpipe Challenge and the parties will be non-stop for this week-long extravaganza of an event. Check out the schedule below...
