Huatulco Day Activities

Bays of Huatulco Bay Local Boat Tours

Huatulco Mexico has several major attractions along its 20 plus  miles of shoreline. There are nine pristine bays along a green coastline full of "Mexican EcoTourism". In order to fully grasp Huatulco's ecotourism heaven is by taking contracting a local cruise ride to all the bays. One way to arrange a bay tour is to go to the boat-owners' cooperative red/yellow tent which is located by the marina. You can buy tickets for sightseeing, snorkeling, or fishing. Beaches other than La Entrega, including Maguey and San Agustín, are noted for offshore snorkeling.

Several of the Huatulco beaches are completely undeveloped, so you will need to bring your own snack pack in the backpack. Boatmen from the cooperative arrange all return pickups at scheduled times. Prices run about $15 for 1 to 10 persons at La Entrega, and $35 for a trip to Maguey and Organo bays. The farthest bay is San Agustinillo; that all-day trip will run $80 in a private boat.

Other options are to join an organized daylong beach cruises. Most travel agency's can make arrangements. Cruises are about $30 per person, with an extra charge of $5 for snorkeling-equipment rental and lunch.

Sunny Beaches
- The coast of Huatulco, at least for now, has remained one of Mexico's relatively undiscovered beach areas. This incredible location offers some of the most beautiful bays and beaches in the country. The Huatulco coast used to be one of the sea turtle's worst enemies, lately it has become a savior of this endangered species. This is now one of the few remaining places in Mexico that you can see these beautiful creatures on a regular basis, in any numbers.
