It is a lush region in the Mexican state of Oaxaca, inserted in the Sierra Madre del Sur foothills, with golden Pacific Coast beaches.
The region consists of nine bays, including the dock in Santa Cruz Bay, which receives cruises several times a year.
Of the 9 bays with 36 beaches in total, 5 are intended for tourism developments and 4 of them are considered natural areas within the Huatulco National Park.
Huatulco is one of Mexico’s southern-most tourist destinations and offers a much lower-density experience than other mainstream travel hubs in Mexico. Its local vibe appeals to travelers looking for an authentic cultural experience that reaches beyond the big box stores and chain restaurants.
