Our group of 14 arrived by boat - we jumped in and swam the last bit. How do you say WOW - but better. We walked quite a distance on the beach - it is much larger than you realize. Well worth the effort to...More

Easiest to get here by boat... but we made the 30-40 minute hike thru the woods from the end of the paved road. BRING WATER! Arriving at the beach is like a mirage -- after sweating thru the jungle brush you come to a magnificent,...More

Accessible by boat and we found it gorgeous, almost empty and unfortunately water a bit murky for snorkelling. Worth a trip though. What a gorgeous Mexican paradise Huatulco is.

Good place to go to eat and party. Lots of choices for reasonably priced restaurants - mostly gringos, without the gringo prices :-)

We walked down to Cacaluta Beach with two tour guides through the National Park. They talked about the vegetation, the climate, the animals, the insects, and the history, of the park. They explained the importance of keeping the area sustainable. We enjoyed the walk and...More

Our snorkel excursion took us in close past this beach. It is absolutely gorgeous! Would love to spend more time, but the water was rough for swimming and there are no facilities. So I guess that is why it was almost deserted except for a...More

Playa Cacaluta is my favorite beach in Huatulco. We walked in and it was an easy 40-ish minute walk. Beware though, the mosquitos are really bad (and I'm from Winnipeg, Canada - we have the worst mosquitos on the planet!), so wear bugspray if you...More
