Santa Maria Huatulco
Tracing its roots back to pre-Hispanic times, it was used as a trade center for the Oaxacan region. In the main square you will find a red and white cathedral dating back to the 18th century. Great shopping is found in the native market.
Bay and Jungle Excursions

Coffee Plantation Tours
Your trip will not be complete without a visit to the Aromatic Region. Founded in the 19th century by German immigrants, this coffee plantation produces and harvests Mexico’s fragrant “pluma” coffee. The plantation actually dates to earlier and legend has it that the first plants were brought in by an English pirate.
Mexican Turtle Center
