Huatulco , Mexico

4 04 2011

29th March 2011


Following the success of Cancun, the Mexican Government looked for a similar resort on the Pacific Coast, the result was Huatulco, with 9 bays and 22 miles of beaches.  Development only started 20 or so years ago and has a Mexican feel, but it still feels unfinished.  It appears to have been hit by the world recession as various half built developments stood  abandoned.

We were off Aurora early, walked round to the pretty marina and negotiated with a local boatman to take us to a nearby bay suitable for snorkelling.  On the way he stopped at various points of interest, including a blow hole. Later in the day from the cliff top a whale and her calf were seen by others, going north. 

On the beach we settled ourselves down under the palm roof of one of the many cafe/restaurants.  We all went snorkelling and eventually found a very interesting area at the entrance to the bay with lots of colourful fish.  We spent most of the day either snorkelling, swimming or drinking beer and sampling local food, before our boatman arrived for our return.  We had time for a quick shower and change and a short visit the little town square full of small shops selling local produce before sailaway.

A very simple, but enjoyable day in Huatulco
