This video is from January 2018. The bus took around five minutes and cost US$.50 each direction. Buses ran regularly. I never had to wait longer than a couple minutes for a pick up.
At Mercado Benito Juarez, I found dozens of sit-down food stalls serving traditional Mexican food, from moles to chile rellenos. The concierge at our hotel said the best way to choose where to eat is to see which spot is the most popular. We settled on Los Tres Giresoles and the dishes were excellent.
Besides all the great food, the Mercado is the heart of Puerto Escondido. There's tons of shopping, so expect to pick up a souvenir or two. Don't miss the stands selling Oaxacan string cheese.
Here's how to get to Puerto Escondido's Mercado from Zicatela Beach:
