Huatulco

4.3
A short flight from Mexico City, scenic Huatulco features nine picture-perfect bays on the Pacific coast. Huatulco vacations are especially popular with visitors from Canada and the U.S., who flock to this warm coastline to escape their cold winter climate. The picturesque bays provide a backdrop for a string of modern hotels, ensuring plenty of amenities for a luxurious Huatulco holiday. Unlike Mexico's larger and more famous resorts, Huatulco offers a quieter vibe in a restful setting. The town's walkable central area boasts many shops, restaurants, and a church with a 20 m (65 ft) depiction of the Virgin of Guadalupe. Huatulco is in Oaxaca. Take the guesswork out of planning a Mexico vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

Where to stay in Huatulco

The planned resort region offers a large selection of accommodations at surprisingly budget-friendly prices. Stay near Marina Chahue for the best access to boat tours, Santa Cruz Huatulco for proximity to the nearby national park, or the main township of Crucecita to be surrounded by the most convenient amenities. For something a bit quieter and more focused on the beach, look slightly north to Tangolunda.
