    He liked us visit La Crucecita there we could eat the traditional tlayudas and give "taste" mezcal, chocolate, sauce of grasshoppers and mole in the different businesses that offer tastings. There is also a market offering handicrafts and other details. In the restaurant the taste of Oaxaca there are very good tlayudas and La cream restaurant, opposite the main square, a few delicious pizzas (there is a banana with cinnamon, very rich!). We also got on the train Via e did the night tour of one hour, the guide was very funny!

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.
