#6 of 11 in Nature in Huatulco
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.

  • A Bay which still has its charm is not very large but if you clean only part is very dirty but by shells or parts of coral because there is an area of reef where you can snorkel! There are a variety of restaurants to eat! We went to the Don Ramón palapa buffet breakfast was excellent and the food is very rich and very well served! It is worth being there all day!

  • This beach is nice but I found the water to be a bit rough. I wasn’t comfortable in the water. Go visit the restaurant La Casa Del Abuelo. They are very kind and it’s a great menu!  more »

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.
