Barra de la Cruz

Oaxaca - Pacific Coast Mexico , Mexico

The Huatulco region’s main assets are its beautiful beaches, nine bays with thirty six beaches of all types, some are protected by cliffs, some have crystal clear waters, some difficult to access and others are open to the forces of the ocean swells making them magnificent for surfing. It has an animated nightlife with restaurants and clubs that stay open until sunrise and will cover all of your recreational needs.

Diving is a very popular activity in the area, there are many enclaves of rich marine life scattered around the area. You can see tropical fish, dolphins and the possibility of seeing enormous marine turtles is an experience that you shouldn’t miss out on. The turtles nest in the same bay as Barra at night and you can only see them with permission from the authorities. There are many boat trips available along with whale watching, fishing or visiting some of the secluded beaches. If you travel to the north you can explore the foothills of the Sierra Madre, an inviting area which is 70 percent protected and is covered with rich tropical vegetation that manages to conserve its natural beauty. You’ll see many coffee, banana and cashew nut plants along your way and there is also the possibility of horse riding.

The surf in this region is excellent, with other important waves distributed along the coast to keep in mind. In Salina Cruz you’ll find many fast and hollow waves. The best time for intermediates is from April to October. We recommend staying at Casa el Mirador. You could also visit the Rio Copalita Beach, near to Hualtulco and popular with the locals, where they go rafting during the rainy season (May to October).
