I wanted to share an experience on our flight to Huatulco recently through Mexico City. We flew down through toronto into Mexico city and then connected with Interjet. Our departure from TO was delayed over an hour which made our connection really tight. Upon arrival into MEX, we cleared customs, gathered our luggage (4 larger pieces), then grabbed a porter...

only one day of storms that kept us from enjoying the sites of the bay. It was the rainy season so one day out of seven, it was wonderful week.

Me and my wife visited Huatulco in July 2014 and found a recommendation on here for Teko and decided to contact him for a private tour of the bays. He came and picked us from the hotel. Teko has a good size boat. We started with a general tour of the bay. Then we went fishing. We went deep into... More

The water in Huatulco is absolutely beautiful. I would say it is better than the caribbean. The reason being is that it is warm very clean (no seaweed) and no jellyfish. When you go into the ocean you can see the bottom. A big plus is that there are also waves so it is really fun

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

We met Coco on the beach. He was polite, honest and friendly. He told us what we wanted to hear and offered us his services.His rates are not to high and very appropriate for the service provided. Time was not on our side so we were unable to enjoy a day with Coco but certainly felt confident enough to ask... 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.

We returned to Huatulco in March 2014 for the second time. In 2013 we did a bay and snorkel tour through the hotel and while it was excellent and the guides did a great job of making sure we all had a good time we decided this year to do a private tour with fewer people. We heard about Teko... More
