I love Huatulco! We've visited it many times over the years and although at times it gets crowded, it never feels like a touristy town. It helps that the main hotels are not near the main town and mainly isolated with vegetation. Prices tend to be much lower that any other resort town in Mexico, the ocean is pristine and... More

We were in Huatulco for just about 6 hours on a cruise stop. It's not surprising that the beautiful Huatulco bay is the number 1 "attraction" in this area. This place was unexpectedly beautiful and we both decided that we'd come back in a minute given the opportunity. It was fairly quiet and and not spoiled by large crowds. We... More

This is a gorgeous beach, the waves were great, we went there to surf, not sure about swimming, ocean looked a bit rough. Saw sting ray family, with dotted skin simply beautiful! Clean, nice courteous people, vendors not pushy, very nice place to chill.

Our cruise ship was only there for a few hours so there was only time for a few drinks, some guacamole and a swim. A relaxing few hours.

The beach is so pretty and the snorkeling area is right there. Don't need to rent a boat. The sand is raked and clean, wonderful chaises and umbrellas with thatched roof huts.

The Huatulco area has a number of bays, all outstanding and a little different. Some have nothing, just a beach. Others have restaurants, boating, swimming, all the way up to the main bay where the cruise ships dock and you can rent a panga and go fishing, snorkeling, whatever you like. We have been there twice for just a day,... More
