Destination Spotlight: Huatulco

Huatulco, Mexico is in our featured destination spotlight this week. Discover the natural beauty and laid back vibe of this Pacific coastal area

The tourist area of Huatulco, Mexico, is made up of several small towns on the Pacific coast. This might be part of the reason the resort destination maintains a small-town feel. The area's 33 beaches and 9 bays offer visitors splendid natural scenery without the feel of being overdeveloped. Naturally occurring swimming holes have been carved out by cascading waterfalls over long periods of time.
The area's lush jungle, and proximity to the ocean makes a great location for outdoor activities and adventure tourism. Deep-sea sports fishing in the Pacific Ocean can be arranged, as well as fresh-water river rafting. Coral reefs and tropical fish are easily visible to scuba divers and snorkelers. Boats can also be hired to visit secluded beaches. Depending on the time of year and the weather, surfers are also able to catch Pacific waves.




Huatulco claims to have 300 rain-free days per year with an average daily temperature of 28 C.
November is a great time to visit due to low-season rates and the water is still warm. Northern visitors may appreciate the hot, dry weather from January to April or the hot, humid weather from May to August.
