Had a wonderful week spent here. only one day that it was storming too much to visit the beach. We spent a lot of time just looking out over the Bay.

no doubt it is pretty to look at. very crowded because most beach hotels are there. not special for swimming or snorkeling. compared to cancun and tulum beaches there is no reason for going to huatulco.

Since 3 of the major all-inclusive resorts are sited on this bay, it is busy with tourists and less secluded.

There is an underow to watch for, plus the sand ends abruptly which makes you go from waste deep to over your head. Rather unpleasant if your are not ready for... More

Look for Tony Lopez Lopez on this beach, usually in front of the Barcelo. Tony is an awesome guy that has his own boat and will take you out to tour the bays of Huatulco,... More
