It was the weekend so there were many locals enjoying family time. The restaurants along the beach were accommodating and enjoyable. The vendors traversing the beach with various wares and eats were polite... More

Huatulco Bay is quite beautiful. Not only is the beach a delight to walk but also the views are great. The rocks and the cliffs make it quite special.

I came here for a visit and I have stayed for 3 years now. It is a precious gem - part of me wants to share it and another part of me doesn't because it is perfect just the way it is now.
