Mexico, Naturally

For a truly authentic Mexican experience - visit Huatulco. It’s a Pacific paradise renowned for its relaxing atmosphere, beautiful beaches and feel of being the “real” Mexico. And for sun seekers – there is virtually year-round sunshine!

Huatulco is still relatively unknown to many vacationers and it is an area of pristine natural beauty. Much of its appeal is that, despite the fact that many luxury resorts have been developed along its magnificent bays, little has changed. Recognizing the ecological importance of this entire region, it has been designated a national wildlife preserve, and all development has been planned and carried out sensitively. In fact, several of the bays remain wholly undeveloped today and can only be accessed by boat.

Drive to the mountains, hike by the river side and swim in natural fresh water swimming pools. Enjoy an unforgettable experience, as you explore the jungle on a 4x4 adventure. Visit Pluma Hidalgo a town in the clouds, famous for its Pluma coffee. Taste the local cuisine or see handicraft production at a traditional weaving workshop.

Beginners and experts can try diving and snorkelling at one of the over thirty beaches. And if you are a golf enthusiast, enjoy a round at the challenging 18-hole Tangolunda Golf Course.
