The Copalita ruins and ecological park are a good daytrip. The museum is top notch, the ruins are very small, but the hike is wonderful. Going out is all uphill, so take water and take it easy. The boardwalks and staircases are pretty cool, and the views of the ocean near the end are just lovely. We had an overcast day, so it wasn't too hot, but on a sunny day go early!!!
What we missed on our first visit was the fantastic beach at La Bocana. If you see the eco park and ruins early in the day, then you'll have time to enjoy the fabulous surf and wildlife on the beach and maybe have a drink and snacks at one of the pretty beach palapas.
After the snorkeling and sunning beaches of Playa Entrega, Playa Santa Cruz and Tangolunda Bay, we found Playa La Bocana to be a sheer delight because it is so rugged, so wild and so different than the others.
We have so many pics it's easiest to share a link to our collection of photos from La Bocana: http://roadslesstraveled.us/sailing-mexico-blog-playa-la-bocana-huatulco-mexico/
