Huatulco is home to plenty of beautiful beaches and sandy bays. But there’s more to this destination than its quiet shores and clear waters. Huatulco is ripe with outdoor adventure and ecotourism options ideal for travelers looking to experience the culture of this community by getting outside.

Finca La Gloria

This family-owned coffee plantation is known for its fertile green farms and fantastical butterfly sanctuary. Travelers can tour the working facility in the heart of a Mexican jungle and learn about the process of turning fresh berries into a cup of one of the most-loved morning beverages. 

Huatulco National Park

Extensive conservation efforts have preserved the ecosystems of the tropical forests, mangroves, coral reefs and wetlands that make up this park. Whether it’s charting a boat to snorkel, dive or fish in the pristine surrounding waters or lounging on one of the deserted beaches, Huatulco National Park offers visitors a chance to experience the country as it used to be. 

Rio Copalita

Spend a day rafting Class 3 and 4 rapids on the Alemania section of this famous river, or while away the morning hours on a more leisurely ride between Rio Copalita and the sea at La Bocana. This relaxing stretch is perfect for families, small children and the less adventurous. Land lovers can also horseback ride along the shores, climb, repel and hike through the land surrounding Rio Copalita. 

Chachacual Bay

Chachacual Bay is home to world-class snorkeling and impressive birdlife, but it is also home to one of the area’s most-loved beaches—Playa La India. A diverse community of tropical fish and warm open waters make it a destination for snorkeling and diving. Strong currents can make for sometimes challenging conditions, so travelers agree its best left to strong swimmers.
