Eco-Tourism Huatulco Travel

Huatulco Mexico is still a developing resort area in Mexico. Less than half of Huatulco´s nine bays have been developed so far making it less attractive than other places in Mexico such as Cabo San Lucas, Puerto Vallarta and Ixtapa. On the other hand, you will have the chance to visit beautiful undeveloped bays and beaches avoiding the traditional crowd of popular places.

Huatulco is for nature lovers. Now is the best time to enjoy nature, before it becomes the next Cancun of the Pacific Ocean. Discover the undiscovered - fill your day with rafting, and jungle adventures. Try the day cruise to uncharted beaches with fun filled snorkeling. All water sports revolve around the nine bays in the area. Yes, nine bays.

Huatulco has its own airport which mainly has flights arriving from Canada and the United States. Connecting flights are also available to other major resort towns and cities. The bus terminal in Crucecita provides access to towns like Acapulco, Mexico City and Puerto Escondido. From the bus terminal, Huatulco can be reached via a quick taxi ride.

The Oaxacan coastline, with average water temperatures of 28ºC and clear days nearly all year round, the nine bays comprising this tourist complex have azure waters, fine white sand and an unusual landscape that creates privacy and gives each one a distinct personality.

The surrounding vegetation ranges from low, deciduous forest to gallery forest and mangrove swamps that provide refuge for skunks, raccoons and armadillos as well as herons, pelicans and falcons, particularly during the rainy season. The complex covers an area of 35 km by 7 km of spectacular landscape that allow you to commune with nature, particularly in the virtually unspoiled beaches of Chachacual, Cacaluta, El Organo and Conejos.

The name Huatulco comes from the Náhuatl word cuaúhtolco, meaning “the place where the wood is adored,” since legend has it that the great civilizing god Quetzalcóatl left the inhabitants of the bay and port of Santa Cruz a wooden cross. The seat of the refined Zapotec culture, the region witnessed the movement of Spanish boats and violent pirate raids. Hernán Cortés used it to distribute the produce of his farms along the coast, which turned Huatulco into an extremely active port. This attracted pirates during the second half of the 16th century, including Drake himself and the famous Thomas Cavendish, causing the local inhabitants to flee. Thereafter the place was a fishing village, until the Mexican government began developing it as a planned tourist complex in 1983.

Huatulco offers activities for every taste and age, from family packages at the Club Mediterrannée to the majestic Golf Club and discotheques in Tangolunda Bay. It also provides sea or land tours-on horseback or by dune buggy-so you can forget about the world in its isolated bays. Alternatively, you can go diving in coral reefs, water skiing or sailing, take a trip to the nearby coffee plantations in the sierra or sample the delicious local lobster. Viva Mexico!
