Huatulco is located in the southern Mexico state of Oaxaca. Central to the area is the town of La Crucecita, a popular cruise ship stop. The weather in Huatulco is thoroughly enjoyed — especially by “northerners”! The Huatulco area is well known for its 36 pristine beaches, and 9 bays, which provide opportunities for fun including fishing, snorkeling and scuba. The Bahias de Huatulco (Bays of Huatulco) consist of a series of nine sheltered bays. Many of the bays are accessible only by a short boat ride.
