#6 of 14 in Wildlife in Huatulco
Visit Hagia Sofia, a 30 ha (74 ac) agro-ecological project committed to the sustainable farming of exotic wildlife native to Mexico and South East Asia. The interpretative guided trail takes you through lush gardens of exotic plants and fruits, crystal clear creeks, and a waterfall you can swim in. Taste organic bananas, coconuts, grapefruits, and papayas, then relax in a hammock and listen to the sounds of birds singing while looking out for colorful butterflies who call this natural habitat home. The ticket includes a homemade organic lunch served in the beautiful outdoors. Add Hagia Sofia and other attractions to your Huatulco trip itinerary using our Huatulco trip planner.

    We thought this tour was a good value for the money. It's so convenient that they will pick you up and that the small bus is nice. We were not prepared for how very long the drive would be, and also t...  more »

    A pretty little town at the top of the mountains. Great views in the center of the Oxahacan coffee region. This is where it all happens, great little coffee places and cute church, a must see if coffee is your passion.

    A nice visit to the privately run botanical garden in Oaxaca. Breakfast, lunch, swim included in the price (800 pesos per person - booked directly with Hagia Sofia). Armando (the owner) named this place for his daughter. He's a knowledgeable and friendly guy, who expertly guided us through the amazing variety of plants and trees. There are multiple washrooms and rest points with refreshing drinks along the way. Lunch and breakfast are delicious. The waterfall is nice, and an excellent place to swim. Also included in the price is pickup from our hotel in Huatulco. Totally worth visiting if you're in Huatulco!

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.
