Huatulco was built by Fonatur ( Mexico's Government Tourism Development Agency). Huatulco is located on the Pacific coast of the Mexican state of Oaxaca, at the foot of the southern tip of Sierra Madre del Sur Mountains, about 250 miles south of Acapulco. With mostly sunny days and an average annual temperature of 82F (28c), Huatulco combines comfort and contemporary luxury with natural setting of rain forest jungle, waterfalls and pristine rivers. Huatulco is the largest ecological reserve designated by the Mexican government, making it a truly unique tourist destination which combines a very modern resort infrastructure within a large undeveloped natural area.

Huatulco is truly one of the most beautiful areas on the Mexican Pacific Coast. It stretches from east to west along 18 miles of coastline and encompasses nine pristine bays: Conejos, Tangolunda, Chahue, Santa Cruz, Maguey, Organo, Cacaluta, Chachacual and San Agustin. So far only three major bays have been developed, Tangolunda, Santa Cruz and Chahue.

Tangolunda Bay is home to luxury hotels (Quinta Real and Camino Real Zaashila being the best), two commercial centers, restaurants and a beautiful 18 hole golf course.

Chahue Bay is the newest development famous for its beautiful marina. There are several restaurants condos and villas with more under construction.

Santa Cruz Bay was originally a small fishing village. Upscale and palapa style restaurants line the beach. Santa Cruz has several small shopping areas and the marina where you can rent a boat and visit other bays and beaches. A wonderful Playa La Entrega beach is on the bay. La Entrega is excellent for swimming and has a great coral reef just offshore for easy snorkeling.

The most Eastern bay is Conejos Bay and is protected by steep cliffs. You will find a small restaurant where you can enjoy simple fresh seafood and a cold beer. Another favorite bay is Maguey known for swimming and snorkeling. There is a beautiful coral reef and rock formations. This small bay is lined with restaurants and palapas.

Oregano, Cacaluta with high sand dunes and fresh water lagoon, and Chachacual bays are undeveloped, accessed only by boat, ATV or hiking. According to the development plan much of this area will remain in its natural state. San Agustin is the most Northern bay. It can be accessed only by boat or dirt road. It is well worth the time to visit the remote fishing village and Playa Coyote for a spectacular sunset. It's many reefs make it ideal for diving and snorkeling.

About Phil and Diane Minch

We are Senior Citizens and retired from elementary health and physical education teaching and business consulting work to a beautiful lakeside home that we built on Tellico Lake near the Smoky Mountains of Eastern Tennessee.

Please do come and visit a place in paradise! This condo is NOT FOR SALE. Who would want to sell this beautiful condo? You see it and you will agree!

Phil and Diane Minch purchased this condo in 1993

Why Phil and Diane Minch chose La Gradera

Phil and I knew from our very first visit to Huatulco in April 1993 that it was a very special place – a place that we wanted to escape to as often as we could. What a tropical paradise it is every month of the year!

The beauty of the ocean and the mountains, the rivers, 9 bays and 30 miles of beaches is unsurpassed. We have traveled to many wonderful and beautiful travel destinations in our lifetime, but Huatulco remains our favorite. Besides the natural beauty of the scenery, we enjoy the friendly small town atmosphere. Huatulco has all the offerings of a tourist development without being “touristy”. There are plenty of opportunities to observe and enjoy nature. We have done a lot of snorkeling and scuba diving here. Such a variety of marine life! We have enjoyed horseback riding up and down the mountainsides and galloping the horses on one of the uninhabited beaches. Rafting on the rivers is fun. We have hiked and biked, bird watched, gone deep sea fishing, and had the fish we caught prepared for us at a beach side restaurant or we bring the fish back to the condo ready to be cooked. Seafood is always fresh and plentiful in Huatulco. There are lots of “Mom and Pop” type restaurants and no fast food places anywhere in Huatulco. That suits us just fine since healthy lifestyles are what we are about.

The air is so much purer in Huatulco than any other place we have been. We can breathe better. Huatulco has yet to be discovered by many although we have done our best to give others a chance to enjoy it. The Camino Real Zaashila Resort where we have our condo is elegant and rated a 5 star operation. There are 17 acres of beautiful gardens that surround the hotel and condos. Everyone has a view of the ocean.

We never tire of the view.

Come see what we are talking about!

What makes this condo unique

Diane loves the fact that she can sit in the bedroom on the vanity bench at the vanity table with her back to sliding glass door and still see the ocean in the vanity mirror.

The resort has a very laid back atmosphere and is a wonderful place to kick back, relax and reduce stress. Huatulco is a perfect place to read a book or magazine either in the condo or on the balcony or beach side or poolside, you choose. You can walk the beach, collect a few prize shells, go for a swim in the ocean, jump some waves, snorkel, jet ski, etc.

The 330 foot long main pool with it’s vanishing edges was a main selling point for us. Diane loves just walking in the pool for exercise. There are beautiful views of the beach, gardens and flowers. Ready for variety? Get out to the main pool and walk a few yards to the beach or few hundred feet to the Beach Club pool with its waterfall and lunch restaurant. It’s perfectly fine to eat or drink in your swim suit here if you want to.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Phil and Diane,

Thank you for sharing your wonderful place with us. We are having a great family vacation here and we will definitely come back as soon as we can.

Since we are planning to come back with some other couples, we would like to know how many condos you have here and would like to take a look at them in order to see how can we acomodate. We may come back in June or by the end of the year with the whole family.

Do you have a two or three bedroom condo?

Expectations exceeded

  • 5 of 5

Our week at the condo was wonderful. While the condo is not fancy, it has an incredible view, is roomy and comfortable, and is well supplied with kitchen tools and other basics. The "plunge pool" was an unanticipated delight. The Camino Real Zaashila housekeeping/pool maintenance staff were excellent. Owners recommend "Mario" for sightseeing adventures and we found him to be knowledgeable and very helpful. His number is in the book with pictures of things to do in the area. We would return in a minute.

Zaashila Condo

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at this condo six times, my first time in 2000. I kept coming back because it was a very nice condo at a wonderful resort and priced reasonably. For less than the price of a hotel room you get a wonderful condo, with a kitchen , a huge bedroom with a king size bed and two terraces overlooking a huge pool and the ocean. The Zaashila itself is lovely, the grounds surrounding it are immaculate and the privacy is great. The all inclusives next door are crowded and noisy and the Zaashila is quiet and serene, a wonderful place to get away from all the crowds and hustle and bustle. I will be back again in 2013 and looking forward to renting this condo again.

Extraordinary vacation destination

  • 5 of 5

Property #340675 has kept my family and I continuously choosing Huatulco Mexico as our home away from home when selecting a vacation destination. The view of the Pacific Ocean (Tangolunda Bay) is breath taking with the beautiful and secluded beach just steps away. Everyone here from the bellboy's to the wait staff on the beach is what makes this destination so accommodating. We enjoy doing various activities which include: Relaxing, Swimming, Jet Skiing, Boat Tours, Walks on the Town, Shopping, ATV Riding and Eating at the Many Restaurants . Huatulco is very safe community with many things to do, thats why we will return to #340675 very soon. Thanks for sharing your little piece of paradise with our family!!!

Another wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I stayed in this condo for ten days, Nov. 3 till Nov. 13, it was the fourth time I have stayed here. The last time I visited was 2007, and the condo has been upgraded with new furniture, drapes, kitchen cabinets and appliances. It has a huge bedroom with a balcony overlooking the refurbished pool, as well as a second balcony off of the living room. This really is nice when one person wants to sleep in, the other person can make coffee, sit on the second balcony and just soak in all the beauty of Tangolunda Bay. The pool was finished right around Oct. 20, 2010, and is more beautiful than ever. The condo allows you to have full access to all the things a hotel guest would,at a very resonable price. For me, I see no reason to stay elsewhere when I am visiting Huatulco.
