Huatulco emerged in the late 1980’s as a new beach resort on Mexico’s pacific coast, located 180 miles south of Oaxaca’s state capital. This beach destination covers a large area and is comprised of 9 pristine bays with a total of 36 beaches, designed to offer luxury travel in an unspoiled tropical environment. Huatulco’s world-class hotels, infrastructure, accessibility and stunning natural beauty makes it an ideal destination for medium sized conferences, executive retreats and weddings.
With the beautiful Sierra Madre Mountains as a backdrop, the Huatulco area is surrounded by an ecological reserve and some of its bays have designated marine parks, offering great opportunities for snorkeling, diving, fishing and other water sports. Huatulco’s many tour agencies offer a plethora of adventure and eco-tourism opportunities, such as canyoneering, rafting, bird watching, hikes to waterfalls, bike rides and visits to coffee plantations. Excursions by horseback along the beach or in the tropical forest are available at Rancho Caballo de Mar, and the Tangolunga Golf Club offers visitors an 18-hole, 72-par golf course.
Building restrictions have kept the hotel zone’s 52 hotels (with 2,779 rooms) in aesthetic harmony with the natural surroundings, creating an atmosphere of privacy and seclusion. With 421 luxury rooms and suites, the Dreams Huatulco Resort & Spa sits on an exclusive beachfront property in Tangolunga Bay. Aside from its 6 bars and pools, several gourmet restaurants, a spa and gym, the Dreams Huatulco offers several event facilities, including a theater, a business center and event spaces for up to 400 people.
Alternatively, the Las Brisas Huatulco hotel offers 335 luxury rooms and suites, and 10 conference rooms with a hosting capacity for 800 people. The resort’s 6 restaurants can cater cocktails of up to 1,500 people and the facilities offer a variety of alternative event spaces and entertainment options.
Huatulco is very accessible via the Huatulco International Airport (HUX), which has flights servicing a number of national destinations, as well as flights to and from Chicago, Denver, Houston, Milwaukee and 7 Canadian destinations. The airport is located 16 miles from the Huatulco bay area, which also has a dock for cruise ships.
