Huatulco National Park vacation rentals

Hitting the Mexican coast at the Huatulco National Park

Huatulco National Park vacation rentals are a ticket to one of Mexico's most celebrated swaths of wilderness. Located where the craggy peaks of Oaxaca tumble down into the white-capped rollers of the Pacific Ocean, it's a picture of primeval seascapes. The coastline comes interspersed with white-sand beaches and pockets of mangrove, all scurried over by black iguanas and trampled by curious anteaters. Beneath the sea is another wonderworld, where SCUBA tours reveal a color palette of coral reefs and endangered turtles drift in the currents.

Get hitched in the Huatulco National Park

Huatulco is a far cry from the hedonistic resort towns that rumble elsewhere on the Mexican Pacific. Replacing Spring Break bars with yogi studios, flaunting its beautiful beaches and peaks, this one's a place to relax, unwind, meditate and be at one with nature. You can cycle the paths down to Tangolunda and watch for whales and dolphins in the water. You can beachcomb until the night comes to stargaze out across the ocean. You can discover uber-romantic clifftop walks. You can even get hitched, in what some say is the most romantic spot in all of Mexico.

Wild wonders in Huatulco National Park

Mangrove walks and beach-hopping sessions, clifftop whale watching and horse riding in the company of tropical birds _ that's what's on the menu in the wonderland of beaches and jungle that is the Huatulco National Park, a veritable main attraction in its own right. Once you're done in the great outdoors, a jaunt to the Museum of Oaxacan Art with its handmade folk trinkets and craft works, or an evening of chatting and dancing on the Zocalo La Crucecita, is a great way to while away some hours before returning to your Huatulco National Park vacation rental.

Chasing the whales in the Huatulco National Park

If you don't mind a couple of sporadic rain showers and higher tropical temperatures, then the quieter summer months of June, July and August could be the perfect time to hit those Huatulco National Park vacation rentals _ it will set you back fewer pesos to bed down there on the edge of the white-sand beaches and mangroves then. For whale watching and the best weather, the months between December and March are the top choice, even if the marine safaris are a tad busier.

Huatulco National Park _ a Mexican wonderland

Covering a colossal 29,500 acres of land on the bends of the Pacific Coast in southern Mexico, the Huatulco National Park flaunts plenty of wild natural wonders. For starters, the whale pods that flock through the coastal currents between December and March are a real treat to behold _ boating trips to see them and clifftop viewing abound. Then there are the white-sand beaches that glimmer between the scrub-topped inlets around town, and the dashes of wild mangrove where rare lizards writhe in the mud. Adventurers will love it.
