I liked the bay but sand in Huatulco is very coarse. Not the fine white sand, like the Caribbean. It had an orange hue to it. Water was calm enough to safely swim and snorkel and we saw quite a few varieties of tropical fish. Saw a whale in the bay one day. Gorgeous Rocky views on the shoreline. It... More

Scenery beautiful, but boat(and group) too big. Snorkel area they took us to was very rough, maybe it was just that day. Would have been nice to have lunch included.

The 7 bays excursion is a must-see, it's beautiful and a great way to discover the area. Private tours in small boats will allow you to do some fishing, which is exhilarating!

Took our 1st tour boat (yacht) this year. We enjoyed the scenery, the history told to us about the park land we passed. We even saw Orca's and humpback whales. Even a mother humpback and her calf...It was a beautiful day...

The beach was nice for walking as long as you were walking close to the water and not up higher as the slope was awkward to walk on
