Thank you for your comments. !st, the pricing: the rent Andy paid was $1,262usd for 2 months NOT $1,000/month. We were very up front when Andy inquired about the Palapita/Retreat regarding a long stay and no cooking facilities. Private coffee maker, blender and refrigerator are...More

The palapa is quite tranquil and that's including a few chickens announcing the day. Our host provided excellent directions accessing the property. He also is versed in the names of a variety of birds.

About the neighborhood
Mazunte has an international feel due to the diversity of the community. Besides the local Mexicans, there are many from Europe and both North and South America who have settled here. There are fresh food stores specializing in fruits, vegetables, the days' catch [everything from tuna, red snapper, dorado, pargo, even locally caught lobster.] If you are fortunate enough to be here for them, there are special events including an annual jazz festival [mid November] and other festivals. [New Years is a treat.]
Many restaurants (some fine dining) are very close by, beaches, surfing, yoga, laundry, Mexican Center for the Sea Turtle, 'swim with the turtles' and mangrove lagoon boat trips (whale watching in season), white water rafting, water hikes and bird watching trips along t...

How to get there
Airport: HUX - Huatulco airport: 29.8 mi
Ferry: PXM - Puerto Escondido airport: 39.8 mi
Arrival directions;
Keep the From San Antonio section handy so you can disembark on the main road close to us or direct the driver to Posada las Mazuntinas.
From the HUX airport: The airport transportation is quite expensive (>M$1,300pesos from HUX) which is why we recommend you do what we do. We walk the short distance from the terminal to the main road and negotiate with one of the taxi drivers waiting there across the street. The rate to Mazunte is usually between M$350 to $450pesos although people have haggled less. Agree on the price before handing over your bags or getting in the taxi. You will want to go west – to the right on the highway.
If you are familiar with, or wish the experience, there are buses that pass by to Pochutla that are very inexpensive. It is quite possi...
