Electric bike tour
The guide was great and the back up crew, driving behind for safety as we were on a fair amount of public roads, was reassuring. The bikes are new and have issues due to assembly and ease of operation. The best way to operate these bikes is by not pedalling at all in our opinion. Being in the tropics, heat in the day could be a problem.

Beautiful and fun!
We took this trip with our teenage boys on a recent trip to Huatulco. Oscar was a fabulous guide. We learned a lot about local culture, and we all had fun jumping/swimming in the various pools of the freshwater river. Then we topped it off with a delicious family-style meal at a local restaurant in small-town Sierra Madre. Would not recommend if you have difficulty walking on slightly rough terrain

Beautiful Sunset
The expereince was amazing. Unfortunately we were the only ones in the group that booked through Tripadvisor , the others through Sunwing and their travel advisors.. Everyone else was notified of the time change. Our trip was booked for pick up 15 to 20 minutes before 3pm. To be safe we arrived at 230 pm. Waited until 430....Wasted 2 hours of our prescious vacation in a Hotel lobby. It was about 1.5 hours to get to the beach. It was a nice way to see the scenery of the area. The turtle release was wonderful, and of course sad when 2 of my son's 3 turtles were taken by the birds. It is nature and not the fault or blame of anyone. THe tour guide was funny and nice. There was a bit of negative feeling when the driver repeatedly smoked. It is entirely a personal preference, but the wonderful smoking rules of Canada(naturally), do not apply in Mexico. But being in paradise, Ocean breezes, sunset, nature and then being down wind of cigarette smoke :( We had a dark ride home, and then we were taken to a neat look out point in the nearby town. I would recommend it. If with young or sensitive children a discussion prior to the trip about what may happen, and why.... may be beneficial.

unbelievable experience
We are well advanced into our senior years and we can say that we have had no wildlife experience like this in our lives. Our group of eight were beyond excited about what we did. We had 80 baby turtles, ten each, to put in the ocean. What we hadn't counted on was the sea throwing them back out with each wave. We did get wet as we learned to get the turtles back in the water. We put our 80 back in the water several times. It took 1 1/2 hours, finally in darkness, to get our little babies in the water. The whole experience warmed our souls and we learned a great deal. It felt good to give 80 little creatures a fighting chance at life at least until they entered the ocean. Elva and Michael, Edmonton, Alberta

A good time
Enjoyed having a guide show us around the area. Mescal tasting is a must. The town is a great place to spend some time in. We went back and spent 2 mornings in town looking for local products to buy

La Traviata performance shown at Teatro Macedonia Acalá (from the Met, New York). Wonderful! Beautiful building .
Travelled from Huatulco by Tar Airlines to see the opera La Traviata. Stayed at The Holiday Inn Express (again). A quick trip and as we needed to be in Oaxaca Sat morning, we flew with Tar Airline. A great choice. 20 minutes there and 15 minutes on our return flight. Holiday Inn fabulous as usual. Wonderful performance at the Teatro. Oaxaca didn’t disappoint. Lots of Christmas festivities, lights and decorations.

Naturalmente bello
Contraté a la empresa Paraíso Huatulco para hacer esta excursión. El guía que nos llevó fue excelente, los lugares maravillosos y abundante comida oaxaqueña (de la que conviene no abusar, porque para los que no somos mexicanos puede resultar picante). Anduvimos tranquilos, con suficiente tiempo para bañarnos y nadar en las cascadas. Luego del almuerzo, como en todas las excursiones, nos ofrecieron sus productos naturales (yo no compré nada, porque viajé solo con equipaje de mano y no tenía espacio para cargas extras).

Es un lugar hermoso y muy tranquilo, las playas tranquilas, el agua del mar tibia, los paisajes bellos. Muy seguro para caminar o andar en bicicleta. Un lugar familiar y para taer niños. Muchos lugares por conocer.
