Huatulco is a city in Oaxaca, Mexico which is rapidly growing in popularity as an international tourist destination. The city is divided into several parts including Tangolunda, where the luxury hotels and resorts are situated, and Santa Cruz, which is home to the marina and Santa Cruz beach. Other smaller towns located in the Bays of Huatulco include La Crucecita and Chahue. Vacations in Huatulco will be more laid back than in other popular Mexican resort cities.


The area is known for its ecotourism. River rafting, rappelling, snorkeling, diving, boat cruises to virgin bays and hiking jungle trails are all on offer and can be booked through hotels or tourist shops. Shopping, nightlife, or even dining outside of hotels is still somewhat limited, but that’s of course part of the attraction.
