Too may hustlers trying to get you into the beach restaurants and spend your dollars on over expensive menus. It reminds me of the street barkers of Tijuana in the 50., Remember "I had my lunch at the Blue Fox" ?

It is very uncomfortable to eat in a humid and hot restaurant I don't want to sound like a spoiled person, but when you have kids that are just dripping in sweat and trying to eat it does not go well. The place is just awesome to visit and see, but when it comes to going inside the shops and... More

Beautiful town and worth leaving your resort for. Even if you have all inclusive food and drinks, going to town for some authentic food and people is a nice compliment to this gorgeous part of Mexico. Some small shops if your in need of souvenirs and if not, just take a stroll and enjoy the town centre

This is a wonderful little town just a few miles from Huatulco, it is a great place to visit with lots of nice shops and places to eat. There is a very unique church here that is a definite must see. It is next to the plaza that is a beautiful shaded area to rest. It is a quaint place... More

Numerous restaurants, shops, and entertainment. Main church and "plaza" area located here. Quite a bit of restaurant varieties with various price ranges. The main church is worth visiting if anything, for its nicely decorated ceiling.

I loved this town. I was on my own but had no trouble in making friends with the locals. Lots of places to eat and great to people watch. Don't stay in one of the big hotels near by. Stay in Mission de Los Arcos. The best hotel in the centre of town.

La Crucecita, located about a 20 minute walk away from our condo, is a charming community, which unlike many towns in Mexico that appeals to tourists, retains a very authentic flavour. While not huge, it's great for an afternoon wander.
