Beaches are clean and easy to access. Hidden gem in Mexico. Breathing sunrises and sunsets highlight the area. Homemade wares for sale nearby. Beaches are easy to walk on to look for shells and other treasures. Have fun good luck.

You must see all the beautiful bays. The snorkelling is unreal! Take some candy with you as part of the bay tours, you make a stop in St.Augustine. The children love to get American candies:)

so very clean and beautifully landscapped. Then a trip to the river for a rafting experience. We loved our guide, he was funny and knowledgable, but only in Spanish!! His old bus needs a new battery, but he was realiable and picked us up after 5 hours to get us back on the Norwegian Star as promised.

The beach is clean and beautiful. Sunrises and sun sets are wonderful. Very clean beaches, easy to walk for seniors, and would return again.

My husband and I visited Huatulco for the first time at the end of January. Gregorio Sanchez was recommended to us so we arranged for a half day boat tour. He took us out to see dolphins, sea turtles, and as a bonus, my husband did some fishing. We saw a blue marlin and landed a sail fish. What an... More

This was an amazing trip, I travelled by myself and am so grateful that I did. The people were amazing and the food was so delicious, I would travel to the area again in a hearbeat. Huatulco is a safe place for the single travellor.

Lots of shops both touristy for the big hotel boats, but also nice shops for jewelry, art, clothing. Plenty of fishing and cruiser boats to take you out for whatever you want. Great little sea side church and village area.

Right on beach are wonderful fishermen who will take your group of 1-10 (recommend under 7) out to fish, snorkel, bay tour, look for dolphins, whales and sea turtles. You custom your trip based on your interests

Plenty of funky sculptures and entertainers, sea smell and cold bier. Also, noisy, touristy, trashy, lots of bugs. I think once is more than enough.
