Huatulco is a resort area concentrated around the small towns of Tangolunda, Chahue, Santa Cruz and La Crucecita. This Mexican vacation destination was made for the nature-loving and environmentally conscious traveler. Relax on any of its 36 beaches and nine bays, four of which are completely undeveloped as they are designated ecological preserves. With this in mind, you can be sure to get a beautiful view of the ocean and an unspoiled spot on the beach.
The majority of visitors will arrive at the Bahías de Huatulco International Airport (HUX). There are direct flights from a few international airports in North America. You can also get to the area from Mexico City by bus in about 10 hours. Once there, transportation is easy as taxis are plentiful and inexpensive. Since the area is vast with destinations being spread out, you may choose to rent your own transportation.
With its emphasis on preserving the area's natural beauty, Huatulco is a great choice for anyone who wants to truly escape the noise and crowds typical of urban life. This is the perfect place to interact with the locals as only about 20 percent of visitors come from overseas. With people from all over Mexico visiting the area, you can learn a lot about regional cultures within the country while making friends.
