Located in beautiful, always-sunny, always warm Huatulco, in the state of Oaxaca, far down the pacific coast of Mexico (about 8 hrs south-east of Acapulco), this 2-bed, 2 bath (sleeps 6) ocean-view, beach-front condo is part of a 6-unit villa in Aarrocito, an exclusive 'residential', only a 4-minute walk down the hill to its own lovely beach, and located only 5 minutes from anywhere: downtown, fabulous restaurants and bars, an 18-hole golf course, and variety of other beaches to choose from. Formerly operated as an apartment-hotel, 'villas pacifico sur' has only 6 units, so lots of tranquility, quiet, and privacy. Breathtaking ocean view fm living rooms, terraces, and bedrooms. High quality fixtures and a kitchenette make this destination a luxurious but well-priced getaway in paradise - an eco-tourism area where the tour operators actually guarantee weather! Two ocean-view restaurants within a block walk, and taxi rides to anywhere else for 30 - 50 pesos (approx $3 - $5).
Huatulco is truly still an "up and coming" resort area within Mexico. Though the tourism and government folks began developing it 23 years ago, as of winter 2009, there were still only six (6) large chain resort hotels. There are many more charming small, independent hotels and B&B's as well, of course, but the place still has a lovely, small-town feel about it. Not to be mistaken for the dusty, dirt-road, backpacker paradise, on the contrary, the government maintains the beautiful double-wide avenues with green-grass, palm-tree and bouganvillia lined medians and the golf course is lovely and the beaches pristine. Huatulco has attracted a discerning, worldly full- and part-time population and tourist base, so the availability of good shopping, excellent restaurants, culture and nightlife is not lacking in the least in spite of the blissful absence of overcrowding. Also, unlike many other sun destinations, the incredible weather is absolutely consistent and reliable.
Huatulco boasts one of the most extraordinary landscapes in Mexico! Unspoiled beaches, tropical forests, white sand and eternal sun convince you this is truly Paradise! Avg ann'l temp of 28C (83F) and 330 days of sunshine. With the Sierra Madre behind, the mountains cascade into the Pacific, creating 9 incredible tranquil, sheltered bays carved out of its rugged coastline, and many of the 36 beaches of the area are still undeveloped and boat-access-only. The region has been designated a national wildlife preserve and has great ecological importance in Mexico. With abundant marine life and coral reefs, it is great for scuba, snorkel, boating, & whale-watching. There are great surfing beaches under an hr away. A $3-$4 taxi takes you to a lovely 18-hole golf club, 2 marinas to hire a boat for deep-sea fishing or visiting a secluded beach, or downtown w excellent restaurants for every taste and budget, lively bars w live music, a beautiful Zocalo, 4-plex cinema and great shopping.
