US Coast Guard ship fumes. Aggressive hecklers will be picking at your heals when you get out of the tax a block away.

Probably the most modern of the bays in Huatulco. Nice shops to enjoy and great restaurants. We took a ride around the bay on a small boat which was very enjoyable.

This is a sweet little place to visit. Very relaxed. Make sure you eat at the beach. The atmosphere is great, and although we just had a drink and some guacamole, it was simply divine. A "must see" when you go to Huatulco.

This pretty setting is ruined by price gouging and promoters that chase you down the street. Stay away.

The Marina is very large, lots of shopping and restaurants. Everyone wants you to buy now and pay later. The restaurants are a little pricy.
