Touring the Bahías


The Bahías de Huatulco are made up of nine bays strung along nearly 20km of coastline and backed by forest.  Each separated from the next by several kilometers, the bays can be dificult to access by land.  A full-day boat tour is one of the best ways to visit the bays and gain some valuable insight into the history and dvelopment of Huatulco.  Here are a couple of the highlights:


Bahía Santa Cruz is the principal bay with beaches, the harbor, and cruise ship pier.  Easily reached by car from La Crucecita and the airport, it’s the jumping off point for visiting the other bays and beaches.


Located within the boundaries of the Parque Nacional Huatulco, Bahía Cacaluta is the beach where scenes from the movie Y Tú Mama Tambíen were filmed.

    The beaches are so varied in Huatulco, that you would need more than a week to enjoy them all. Besides, Huatulco is not only beaches because there are lots of tours to do.
