The country's southernmost Pacific Coast resort, Huatulco encompasses 18 miles of cove-jagged coastline on nine lovely bays. Beach after beach, 36 in all, are framed by white sands and the jagged peaks of the Sierra Madre del Sur, perfectly set off the cerulean blue waters. Because Huatulco is still relatively unknown, it's a destination where you won´t get lost in the crowds of thousands of tourists. Here you will still find personal attention and a "village" atmosphere. This does not mean, however, that there´s no development or infrastructure. On the contrary, with the help of Fonatur (National Trust Fund for Tourist Development, a Mexican Government Agency) Huatulco has become a highly advanced tourist destination, practicing responsible and sustainable eco-tourism. We're proud of our International Airport, two marinas, Public and Navy Hospitals, an 18 Hole Golf Course, a network of well maintained roads, modern electricity and water supply, a garbage collection system, well maintained green areas, water treatment plants, etc. Above everything else, Huatulco is a clean and well organized place with all the services that one may need.
Huatulco is comprised of three distinct sections.
Tangolunda—The resorts all use sections of the beach on Tangolunda Bay as their own. This is the busiest and most populated beach in the area. The area is also home to a few restaurants, shops, and the The Italian Coffee Co. which make some of the best coffee and lattes around.
Santa Cruz - retains the charm it had as a quiet fishing village before the development of Huatulco began. The Mercado de Artesanias sells pottery, silver, and leather goods. The shady plaza offers a pleasant place to stroll. Santa Cruz's beach provides water sports, several restaurants, and inviting sunning spots. There is also a busy marina where boats depart for other bays.
La Crucecita - Huatulco's “downtown,” La Crucecita resembles an old Spanish-colonial village. Stroll the Plaza Principal, shop for Oaxacan crafts in shops and markets, sample the various restaurants and bars, or enjoy a cup of locally grown coffee at an outdoor cafe.
