Huatulco (wa-tool-co) is one of Mexico's newest and most exclusive fully-planned resort developments. It was just in 1983 that FONATUR, the government's tourism development agency, picked this isolated spot to become Mexico's next Cancún or Ixtapa. Huatulco is still relatively undeveloped and unknown compared to other Mexican resorts, so if you seek pristine natural surroundings and the comfort of world-class accommodations, this is the place for you. In fact the area received certification from Green Globe, mostly due to its management of potable and waste water, the first resort area in the Americas to do so, and the third in the world.
As the hemisphere's first eco-tourism resort, this unspoiled hideaway remains pleasingly primitive, yet warm and welcoming. With no resort taller than six stories, great care is being taken to retain the virgin beauty of this environmental jewel. Your Huatulco escape puts you in reach of spectacular waterfalls, emerald rainforests, whale watching and the ancient culture of the mysterious Zapotec people.
