Hello folks - we are heading to the Barcelo via Sunwing December 11/12. Our only previous visit to Mexico was a few years ago when we went to the Palladium Vallarta and we are looking forward to this trip.
Couple of questions -
I've seen lots of chat about lining up cabs from airport to resort. There's supposed to be transport provided - why take a cab? Is there something I'm missing?
On a similar note - in PV you had to run the gauntlet of ridiculously aggressive timeshare vendors to get to the sidewalk. Does that happen in Huatulco?
We expect to take a daytrip, perhaps some snorkeling, and will likely head out to one or two of the recommended restaurants just to mix up the resort fare.
Any tips on the Barcelo and the Huatulco area would be welcome. I've been reading the forums as far back as I can and it's great fun to research our trip.
