Maguey Bay, Huatulco
(3.9/5 based on 400+ reviews on the web)
Maguey Bay attracts tourists with its vivid local culture, unusual gastronomy, and calm clear waters at the far end of the beach where you can snorkel. Have a shot of mescal to work out an appetite, and then stroll along choosing cuisine from the busy seafood shacks here. The nearby Punta Maguey provides a good scuba diving site with tropical fish, walls, and caves. If you wish to spend the whole day hanging out with the locals, put up your own tent or simply mellow out on patio chairs while sipping a cold beer. Amenities include public showers and restrooms. Take a look at our Huatulco travel itinerary maker to schedule your visit to Maguey Bay and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.
