Huatulco Bay, Huatulco

(4.6/5 based on 1,000+ 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.
