Introducing - Relaxing Huatulco, Mexico

Huatulco is one of Mexico’s most relaxed vacation destinations. It's a resort town with a small town chill-out vibe. The centerpiece of Huatulco’s charm is a series of nine bays, encompassing 36 beaches and numerous inlets and coves, each with its own unique setting and ecology. All are noted for their dream-like beaches of golden sand, crystal clear water and abundant water sport activities, yet the bays remain delightfully unspoiled, sometimes accessible only by boat. If you seek adventure then try a white water rafting tour down the Copalita River with plenty of class III and IV rapids or zip glide across the jungle from a zip line tour and see Huatulco from an arial view.

Located on the coast of the state of Oaxaca at the edge of the Sierra Madre mountains, Huatulco spans 20 miles of Mexico's impressively rugged Pacific coastline. In 1988 the Bahias de Huatulco (Bays of Huatulco) National Park was declared a protected reserve with a world-class tourism infrastructure of luxury hotels, restaurants, nightclubs, coffee shops, discos, golf courses and a small urban zone called La Crucecita. Huatulco nightlife offers a little something for everyone! Huatulco was the first destination in North America to achieve the Green Globe environmental certification for its commitment to the highest environmental standards.

Huatulco’s selection for resort development was helped along by its proximity to the state’s capital, the magical City of Oaxaca with its ancient archaeological sites, vibrant and colorful markets, rich colonial architecture and fascinating native cultures - a perfect match for Huatulco’s coastal attractions. Primarily – Huatulco boasts sunshine over 300 days a year so bring plenty of sunscreen!

Recommended Hotels in Huatulco:
Please call us at 1-888-898-3628 or 1-757-596-2774 for more details.
