Huatulco Bay, Huatulco

(4.6/5 based on 1,100+ reviews on the web)
Consisting of eight separate bays, with rocky points and lush green forests, Huatulco Bay brims with wildlife. Take a whale-watching or sport fishing excursion, or snorkel in the water, spotting vibrant marine life swimming among the colorful corals. Walk on the soft white sands and admire the beautiful scenery, or simply relax in the sun and watch the surfers ride the waves. Enjoy a meal at one of the area's many restaurants, some of which will cook the fish you catch for you.

  • If you're in Huatulco must visit the bays. You can do it in a yacht or boat, the joke is that you know them. We take a VIP tour from the hotel, the guide knows the place and he told us the story. When we swim with snorkel we saw and we live with starfish, sea urchin purple and rose, fish, white coral, turtles mating, we were so lucky that we even stumbled upon a few whales bidding farewell to the season.

  • It is easier to know them on a day boat seven bays, it is definitely a place you should know if you came to Huatulco.
