The dense vegetation and multiple waterfalls present in this part of Mexico make Huatulco a perfect destination for adventure tourism.

The inhabitants of the small towns along the Pacific coast are also very warm and friendly. Huatulco is a great destination to try if you like to melt with other cultures.
