Huatulco Oaxaca Mexico

Huatulco is almost due south from Austin, Texas – it’s a resort town situated on the Pacific coast of Mexico in the state of Oaxaca. I visited Huatulco in 2000 and remember it as a very laid back place.

Lush gardens full of tropical fruits – this little pineapple tree has already produced fruit.

Outdoor living areas are very common in Huatulco – usually with an open sided thatched roof to offer protection from the sun or rain.

The town of La Crucecita is a popular attraction to many Catholics who visit the church in the center of town.

On the ceiling of the church is a 20 meter mural of the Virgen de Guadalupe (Virgin of Guadalupe) the patron saint of Mexico.

    We took a wonderful trip by airplane from Los Angeles to Cancun. Unfortunately due to my teaching schedule, it had to be in the summer. Very humid, but we still enjoyed seeing so many wonderful cities. – Margy

      There are some wonderful ruins near Cancun, I visited many years ago. Would love to go back and spend some time a little further south around Playa del Carmen.
