The Huatulco (Spanish pronunciation:[wa'tulko]; wah-TOOL-coh), formerly known as the Bahíaas de Huatulco, based in La Crucecita, is a touristic trend in Mexico.... Huatulco's travel sector is concentrated in its nine coves, hence the name Bahias de Huatulco, but has since been abbreviated to Huatulco inofficially. The Huatulco offers a large selection of accommodation from rooms for rental, small luxurious hostels, luxurious mansions, holiday apartments, beds and breakfast, as well as several luxurious destinations on or near the coast of Tangolunda Bay.
Camino Real Zaashila (formerly Omni Zaashila), Quinta Real Huatulco, Las Brisas (formerly Club Med), Dreams Resort & Spa (formerly Royal Maeva, then Gala Hotel) and Barceló (formerly Sheraton Hotel) are just a few of the most famous major hotels in the area. The Huatulco is situated in the state of Oaxaca, where the Sierra Madre del Sur spurs hit the Pacific Ocean, about 500 km from Acapulco, Guerrero.
Next to the beach there are small municipalities in Bahias de Huatulco, like Santa Cruz, La Crucecita or the old Santa María Huatulco (the residence of the municipality). It has a "small town" and, with the exceptions of the Christmas and Semana Santa holidays, is seldom populated by people.
Approximately 80% of all Bahias de Huatulco's tourist attractions are of local character. Huatulco's tourist share is only about 20% from abroad, mainly because of the restrictions on cross-border flights. The Bahias de Huatulco has a small cosmopolitan airfield just 20 min from the major Tangolunda Bay resort. It has recently boosted the tourist industry and contributed to the popularization of the Pacific Coast backpackers routes through Huatulco, Zipolite, Mazunte and Puerto Escondido.
The coves of Bahía Chahué, Bahía Tangolunda and Bahía Conejos lie to the west of Santa Cruz. This is the more advanced areas of Huatulco. The name Bahía Chahué means "fertile or humid land" in Zapotec, 2 km eastwards of Santa Cruz. There is a yacht harbour for large and small boats and three main beaches: Chahué, Esperanza and Tejón.
Although these are broad and sandy areas, they are less frequented than Santa Cruz due to their temperate seas. Bahía Tangolunda is located three kilometres eastwards of Chahué with five beaches: Ventura, Manzanillo, Tornillo, Tangolunda and Rincón Sabroso. The Residencial Conejos is located 4 km from Tangolunda and has some of the bigger houses in the area, some of which are holiday apartments.
Copalita River estuary is located just eastwards of Bahía Conejos and has a long beach area. On the eastern side of the River Copalita, the beach stretches to the isthmus of Tehuantepec. Two of these are Barra de la Cruz and Playa Mojon.
The Barra de la Cruz is one of the best and most easily accessible. In fact, most of this area is part of the Parque Nacional (National Park) Huatulco. The area covers 6,375 ha of lowlands and 5,516 ha of sea areas, including the coves of Bahía Maguey, Bahía Órgano, Bahía Cacaluta, Bahía Chachacual and Bahía San Agustín.
These coves are home to the most important Mexican Pacific marine coves. Huatulco received Green Globe International certification as a green tourism destination in 2005. After Bali in Indonesia and Kaikoura in New Zealand, Huatulco was the first American tourism village to win this accolade for its green and resource-conserving cultural programmes.
The Bahía Órgano is called after the growing local orchids. The Bahía Maguey is about 1/2 km long and can be reached by road. The two coves have thin sandy beaches and water in different colours of red, yellow and red. The Bahía Cacaluta and Bahía Chachacual can only be reached by ferry, and there are no man-made structures.
The most westerly and biggest of all coves. 1 ] Large parts of the Bahias de Huatulco spa area are situated in an "ecological zone"; a large part of the area is safe from further developments and is supplied by state-of-the-art wastewater and wastewater purification facilities, so that no rubbish reaches its original shores.
The Huatulco is the only Mexican Green Globe certified destination to have received this accolade (Green Globe is the global benchmark and certificate system for the global financial, corporate and ecological governance of the tourist and tourist industry). Nearly every one of the beaches has a great variety of shellfish, especially "La Entrega" and "Maguey".
Universidad del Mar has its own purpose-built college in Huatulco. Huatulco's new International Airport (HUX) has boosted tourist activity not only in Huatulco but also on other near-beach areas such as Mazunte and Zipolite. "Huatulco". Skip up to: a s " Tom Zap's Huatulco, Oaxaca".
