Huatulco

Oaxaca

Huatulco was created 39 years ago by the National Tourism Fund (FONATUR) as a tourist attraction. After studying the territory and completing the Puerto Escondido-Salina Cruz and Oaxaca-Pochutla highways, it was decided that this area would be composed of nine charming bays: San Agustin, Chachacual, Cacaluta, Maguey, El Organo, Santa Cruz, Chahue, Tangolunda and Conejos.

277 kilometers (172 miles) from the capital of Oaxaca and with the imposing Sierra Madre del Sur as a backdrop, in Huatulco you will find 36 beaches of golden sand and a tropical climate almost all year round that allows you to carry out activities such as: kayak excursions, sailing on a catamaran, snorkeling and scuba diving to immerse yourself in the wrecks of sunken ships or appreciate the reef, as well as expeditions to waterfalls and horseback riding.

Don't miss the sunrise at Bahia Conejos; the sky is painted orange and purple! The scene is so spectacular that the locals tend to gather on the beach to welcome the first day of the year. La Crucecita is the heart of Huatulco. When taking a walk you will find the cathedral and its monumental Virgin of Guadalupe painted on the ceiling and restaurants to travel through the Oaxacan cuisine, including several mezcalerias for evening drinks.

Ass well, don't miss the Museum of Oaxacan Handcrafts and admire the handcrafted rugs in Teotitlan del Valle, as well as pieces made out of black clay, alebrijes and embroidery. If you want to learn the tradition of natural wool dyeing, then go to the Centro Textil Artesanal Beel Guiée in the Arroyo González community, very close to the main district. If you're wondering where to sleep in Huatulco, Tangolunda Bay is where the all-inclusive hotels and houses for rent are located. You will also find cabins and inexpensive accommodations in Bahía de San Agustín, with semi-virgin beaches.
