Mike,

This may be helpful for the future...Here's a link for the online monthly newspaper Huatulco Eye edited by Jane Bauer (Juanita's Restaurant, Yoga Huatulco Studio in Santa Cruz, & of course Hemingway's)

http://www.huatulcoeye.com/

The "paper" usually comes out about the middle of the month prior to its published date & has an events calendar for the entire month. Also keep an eye on the forums here, concerts are usually listed by active members when they get announced.

Nov 20 is revolution day. Our calendar says the day off is the 19th so the parade might be that day. The evening before the younger kids usually have their parade. Dec 1 is inaugration day for the new government. Not sure if any festivities planned.

Contact Gina, The Information Goddess, in Puerto Escondido:

If there's anything going on, she's the one who would know, and PE is an inexpensive ride up the coast from Huatulco. She may even have the goods on Huatulco!

Your vacation appears to be too late for many of the festivals and events (international surfing competition in PE, Muertos of course, Festival Costeño de la Danza in PE, and as noted above), and you'll miss the pre-Christmas festivities which begin about a week after you leave (Virgins of this and that, posadas, etc.). I couldn't find the dates for Festival Costeño for 2012, but Gina will have them without a doubt, and from what I recall it occurs towards the third week in November.

There are no concerts scheduled as yet at the Camino Real. The Amigos de la Musica Huatulco is the group that started the annual series some years ago but one of the "driving forces" has moved away from Huatulco. Have not bee able to find out if someone will be able to fill the gap. It takes a lot of time and effort to coordinate these functions.
