Huatulco. Experience a different side of Mexico
Are you looking to experience a different side of Mexico? Adelman’s Marsha Craig recently vacationed in Huatulco, which is located along Mexico’s southern Pacific coast. Unlike Mexico’s larger resort areas, Huatulco has a quieter and more peaceful vibe with pristine beaches and landscapes, yet it still offers visitors a range of activities and cultural experiences. According to Marsha, “The coastline is beautiful and there are many hotel choices – something for everyone!”
Marsha stayed at both the Dreams and Secrets luxury resorts in Huatulco. The Dreams Resort & Spa offers an excellent experience for all types of travelers with its six swimming pools, including a large infinity pool and adults-only pool, along with a variety of ways to enjoy the water with kayaks, wave runners, sail boats, banana boats, and snorkeling equipment, plus it features an Explorer’s Club for Kids. The Dreams resort offers spacious rooms and suites, delicious dining and a world-class spa.
Secrets Resort & Spa Huatulco is an adults-only resort that is located on a secluded coastline of Conejos Bay. Its golden sand, sapphire waters and interesting rock formations help to deliver a serene escape. Guests can simply relax at one of Secrets’ pools or large beach area or can be more active by taking advantage of the resort’s state-of-the-art fitness center, yoga and other workout classes and watersports. There are also theme nights and parties along with live musical performances and shows.
Both resorts offer Unlimited-Luxury® service and elevated amenities such as limitless access to premium beverages and gourmet à la carte dining options without reservations required, 24-hour room and concierge services, endless activities and more. No wristbands are required.
As wonderful as the Dreams and Secrets resorts are, Marsha advises visitors to get out and explore Huatulco and its many sites. The downtown area, which is just a few minutes from the Dreams Resort, is charming. “The plaza offers visitors the opportunity to shop for items such as black pottery, which is unique to the state of Oaxaca; mescal; wood carvings called alebrije; cotton products made in the area; coffee and chocolate,” Marsha says. “There is a beautiful church there, too.”
Marsha also visited the Copalita, an Eco-Archeological park that has been open to the public for about 10 years. With the aid of her guide, Marsha said she learned a lot about how the people of this area worked and lived so many years ago. “There are great walkways throughout the park along with a beautiful overlook area where the Copalita River meets the ocean,” Marsha says.
With nearby mountains, jungle, 36 unspoiled beaches, nine pristine bays, unique cultural opportunities and a variety of world-class resorts, Huatulco offers a well-rounded vacation experience anytime of the year and without the crowds.
