So, is Huatulco an actual town?

santa-cruz-from-el-faroWhen someone refers to Huatulco, they are very often referring to the region that is actually known as the Bahias de Huatulco (the Bays of Huatulco) which are actually comprised of three main tourist areas: Santa Cruz, La Crucecita, and Tangolunda.

Although there have been fishing villages in this area for more than 400 years, and discoveries of nearby archeological ruins dating back more than 2,200 years, most of the buildings in modern-day Huatulco date back to the mid 1980’s when Fonatur came to this area to develop it as a first-class tourist destination in Mexico.

La Bahía de Santa Cruz (Santa Cruz Bay) was originally home to a small community of fisherman. Today the bay has become a busy tourist hangout and is a nice spot for swimming and snorkeling. You can arrange boat tours of the bays and deep-sea fishing trips at the marina and book your diving excursion at the local dive shop.

One of the most popular bays in the tourist area, Playa Santa Cruz has a wide and long beach with a soft incline, white sand, and warm, gentle water. Here you can find tour boats, jet skies, snorkeling, and beach attire for sale, as well as great restaurants along the shore with the best fish and seafood in the area.

Furthermore, Huatulco has already begun figuring on the world cruise ship market, thanks to the Santa Cruz Cruise Dock, which can simultaneously receive up to two ships with an average of 3,350 passengers, plus 1,100 crew members each. Cruise ships now regularly dock in Huatulco between the months of September and April.

A variety of established residential homes and new condos are available in the neighborhood of Santa Cruz, only blocks from the beach…and nearby Punta Santa Cruz offers very attractive condos and homes with stunning views from their perch on the point overlooking the bay and marina.
