Beautiful sunrises, sunsets

Just enjoyed walking along the beach. Beautiful! You can feed the fish right at your feet towards the east end of the beach. Kids loved it!

We took a taxi to some scenic overlooks of the bay and were glad we did. There are many shops and a beach very close to the pier.

Very crowded but beautiful bay. After canyoneering on the river with Christian, we spent the day using free wifi, drinking margaritas and enjoying the sun.

We loved the bay tour - we were on one of the smaller boats which I really liked - some of the boats hold like 100 people. I would pick one that had smaller amount of people. We went with a company Paraiso Huatulco

Some people were asking me how safe this place is, when I got home. VERY safe. We had no problem at all. We got up early most of the mornings to go out to see the sunrise.at Huatulco Bay.

Most beaches in Huatulco area are untouched and uninhabited. Nary a highrise or large hotel in sight. Gorgeous clean sand and warm water.
