We were staying in Zipolite and decided to take a late afternoon trip to Playa Ventanilla. We stumbled upon the crocodile ecotour, which is well worth it (I think it was 65 pesos/person). We were 2 and had an English-speaking guide who took us to...More

The visit was about 2 hours in total, partly because I think our guide was so informative and it wasn't too busy in the AM. We went on Dec 31 so it was a busy time for domestic tourists but we went early enough that...More

A fantastic experience with, not only exposure to a great deal of wildlife (crocodiles, iguanas, birds...), but also real evidence of the care the locals are giving to protect this local environment. In addition, the beach is more than pleasant! Highly recommended.

I am having the hardest time finding this place! I'm trying to describe it to the guide we are hiring but each time I pull up La Ventanilla it takes we up near Oaxaca. We are staying in Huatulco. Can anyone give me the insider's scoop?
