I visited the National Park twice and had a great birding experience with using Cornelio Ramos, a professional guide. I got great photos of the Red-breasted Chat, Gray Hawk, Crane Hawk, Doubleday's Hummingbird, and many other species that I'd never seen before.

Leaving Huatulco Harbor we turned North. I expected the beautiful clear blue water, but I was surprised at the stone seashore. The blue waves crashing into gray and black craggy wall, with white spray was for me jaw dropping. Having lived in Hawaii and the South Pacific, I was accustomed to the sea slamming into large lava flows. I believe... More

Snorkeling in the coral reef was fun. We spent an hour having lunch under a canvas top. Food was good.

If you've seen planet of the apes with the barren beach this is the feeling you get here. Nature prevails in all it's magnifacance.

We travelled here by boat and were so lucky to visit. Beautiful beach with just us on it, trails to ride bikes or walk nearby. The water was so clear and beautiful we didn't want to leave.

We went on a 7 bay tour of the Huatulco area and stopped at several beaches within the national park. This is a beautiful park with pristine beaches that are crystal clear. The snorkeling is great. At the time we were there the forest was grey but a heavy rain storm that happened a few days earlier started the trees... More

the huatulco national park is visually stunning. seeing it from a boat is the best way. Our tour was about 5 hours of Santa Cruz, Organo, Maguey, Cacaluta, Chachacual and Chachacual. Stoped at one of the bays to go snorkelling. Stopped at Maguey bay for lunch (which wasn't included in the price and was too long of a stop). The... More

This beautiful natural protected park, over 1100 hectares had great trails. We were there bird watching with local birding expert and guide Cornelio Ramos of Zibiilu Guides. On the way and while were there we saw over 65 species of birds! This park has beaches too, and views, but we principally enjoyed our time in the tropical dry forest where... More
