7 Things To Do in Huatulco, Mexico

Explore City Center (La Crucecita)

It’s a small downtown with several hotels, bars, and small shops for necessities. Although the area is a little small, it’s got everything for those looking to stay in a quiet beach town.

Visit Parque Nacional Huatulco

Huatulco National Park covers more than 29,400 acres. It is home to hundreds of animal species, such as lizards, birds, turtles, and much more.

Take a Boat Tour

It’s a great way to spend the day and the best way to see the natural richness of Huatulco, Mexico.

Release Sea Turtles

First, you must head to a small beach town named Mazunta, located almost an hour and a half West of La Crucecita. There you will release baby sea turtles into the ocean!

Day Trip to Puerto Escondido

Located approximately a 2.5-hour drive North of Huatulco is Puerto Escondido, a famous beach town for surfers and those looking to relax during the day and go out at night.

Have a Mud Bath at La Bocana Beach

You’ll most likely be greeted at the beach’s entrance by the mud bath women. These women are the descendants of the Zapotec people who created this mixture.

Visit Playa Zipolite

Just over an hour’s drive from the main city center, the beach is still very accessible and worth the drive, trust me. Either take a taxi there or drive if you’ve rented a car.
