Huatulco is located on the southern Mexico Pacific Coast and is approximately 425 miles SE of Acapulco or 115 miles SE of Puerto Escondido in the state of Oaxaca.

The FONATUR, Mexico's government funded tourist development agency, planned and funded Phase 1 of the Huatulco resort area development with eighty million dollars (not pesos) back in the early 80's. The Huatulco infrastructure is impressive and the project was officially inaugurated in 1988 with several 5 star hotels in the Tangolunda area. The resort area is divided into a variety of areas targeting budget, mid-range and upper-end travelers. Planners have vowed to set aside the majority of the resort's approximately 52,000 acres as ecological preserves in order to protect the area's natural environment. When projected develoopment is complete, the resort is expected to have some 30,000 hotel rooms, bring in 2 million visitors annually and generate nearly 25% of the State's total revenue.

The nine bays from east to west include Bahia Conejos, Bahia Tangolunda, Bahia Chahue, Bahia Santa Cruz, Bahia El Organo, Bahia El Maguey, Bahia Caculuta, Bahia Chachacual and Bahia San Agustin. Currently, only two of the bays are developed - Bahia Tangolunda and Bahia Santa Cruz. Conejos, Tangolunda, Chahue and Santa Cruz are accessible by car. The rest are enjoyed from boat trips which easily arranged for at the harbor.

Tangolunda, "Place where the gods live" in Zapotec, is the well developed hotel center where six major resorts encircle the bay. Several beaches line this bay including Playa La Hierbabuena, Playa del Amor, Punta Praiso and Playa La Entrega where a coral reef is just a few feet offshore.

Bahia Santa Cruz, the site of the original fishing village, is the second developed area with Cruise Ship Docking, party boat day cruises along the bay and deep sea sport fishing at it's best. The village of Santa Cruz has a shady main square surrounded by shops, restaurants, bars and a few Mexican style, middle class hotels.

La Crucecita is located a mile or so inland from Bahia Chahue (Chah - way) and is considered the city center of Huatulco. La Crucecita has a charming town square including a lovely old church and all the restaurants and shopping a reasonable person could ask for. Chahue is the central and largest of the nine bays with significant planned development in progress.
