Driving To Huatulco Mexico

Drive To Huatulco Mexico

Despite the improvements in infrastructure, Huatulco is not as easy to get to as other resorts like Cancun.

The drive south from Acapulco on Federal Highway 200 has over 300 speedbumps. Driving from Oaxaca city, the state capital is not easier. Highway 135 is also full of speed bumps.

Highway 190 has fewer but it is a longer road with many curves due to the mountainous terrain.

"Aeropuerto Internacional de Huatulco" is served nationally by Mexicana, Magnicharter, Nova Air, Polar and AeroTucán from other Mexican airports. Internationally, Continental Airlines, Sky Service, and First Choice fly here from the U.S., Canada and Europe.

Huatulco, Santa Cruz, and La Crucecita are located in an "ecological zone"; much of the area is protected from future development, and the area is serviced by modern water and sewage systems so that no waste goes into its pristine bays. Huatulco has been awarded the Green Globe certification, and it is the only resort in Mexico to receive this prestigious award (Green Globe is the worldwide benchmarking and certification system for the travel and tourism industry across the triple bottom line of economic, social and environmental management).
