HUATULCO TRAVEL GUIDE How are you guys doing? I’m SUPER happy to be back after not feeling so well these past few days. Anyways, the good news is that this time home allowed me to finally edit these great pictures from Huatulco. I’ve been there about three weeks ago, after coming back to Mexico from Italy and Greece. I was in Greece in October and in Huatulco, Oaxaca in November… Nothing feels as good as winter on the beach, on an island or by the ocean. So here it is my (mini) Huatulco travel guide. Hope it helps if you are planning to visit Oaxaca soon! 🙂
Where to stay?
As we were not looking for anything too fancy, the best option turned out to be the Best Western Hotel called Posada Chaue. It is a lovely 4 stars hotel, with spacious rooms -balcony included-, a pool surrounded by tropical plants and a great restaurant if you are into mexican food (here you can find traditional plates from Oaxaca). If it was for me, I’d give it 5 stars, yet I know it is lacking of amenities such as a spa…But who needs a spa if you are in Huatulco?
What to see?
Huatulco is known for its many and beautiful bays. In April we visited the bay of Mazunte, so this time we visited all the other bays of the area. A boat tour is the best option if you are planning to see most of them in one day, the boat will also take you to beaches that are natural reserves… The feeling while approaching them is indescribable. Seriously, I think I’ve never seen something so beautiful in my entire life. We also made a reservation for a jungle tour. After driving a couple of hours and assisting to the accident of a car ending upside down in the jungle, we made it to Llano Grande. The best experience ever? Jumping down a cliff into the waterfalls!!!
What to wear?
Well, bikinis – of course! In my looks I am wearing a bandeau bikini from Missguided, the other one is from Acai. Other than that, I’ve worn denim skirts, which I paired to a red top on our boat trip and to a striped top for our trip to the jungle. Everything else was pretty much beach cover ups and a pair of mules from Asos! Take it easy, Huatulco is quite of a hippie place.
Where to eat?
I usually never skip this part, but this time it is quite hard for me to suggest a restaurant in particular. My tip would be to stop on the beach and eat fresh fish, or go to town and find the most traditional cousine in hidden tiny restaurants. 🙂 If you have any other tip, drop a line in a comment and I’ll be happy to read it! Hope you enjoyed this mini Huatulco travel guide. Xoxo, Irene
