What people are saying about Huatulco

It was an amazingly fun full day! We were picked up later than described in trip description, but was made up at end of day. Captain and assistant were very attentive, informative and enthusiastic. They played music to our request. Cruised to several of the bays, snorkeled as much as we wanted , swam as much as we wanted and were taken to a beach for a beachside lunch. Captain took us to an area for dolphin watching and kept the beer flowing! We were allowed to take food of our own as well for snacks throughout the day. It really was a very fun day.. If ever I return to Huatulco, I’ll be booking this again! Maybe even a sunset cruise, if available. Keep up the good work!

Coffee plantation and mezcal tasting poor quality presentation.drive there grueling as mostly dirt roads that twisted about up the mountain. Falls gorgeous! Walk hard for elderly as requires a mile of walking at least and path steep at one place down and many obstacles to trip on . Very doable for younger crowd or those in fairly good shape.Guides very helpful and friendly, they spoke English well and informative, also on time!

Swimming in the waterfall pools in such hot, humid weather was glorious. Visit to coffee farm was not actually a visit but a presentation to sell their products. However, the included lunch there was plentiful and tasty. Drive to/from was too slow.

We were six of us and we had such a fun and amazing experience. Yes, the road is not paved and is bumpy but the scenery is worth it. We had an amazing experience with our tour guide, Saul. A definitely will recommend this tour to others

excelente service very nice captain and super great food
