Huatulco Shore Excursions: Beaches, Bays, & Bountiful Flora

On a Mexico cruise itinerary that includes the Pacific port of Huatulco, you’ll want to book Huatulco shore excursions to visit some of the 36 incredible white sand beaches set along the nine bays that make up this tropical paradise. 

Board a luxury catamaran for Huatulco shore excursions that take you on a tour of different bays, including Organo Bay, and relish the natural beauty all around you. Admire the pristine landscapes, rock formations, and abundant wildlife as you glide along crystal-clear waters that vary in hues of blue and green while your guide points out interesting features and fun facts. When anchored at Organo Bay, take a refreshing swim, then relax on deck with a cool tropical drink and snack. 

Experience the sights of sea and land on Huatulco cruise excursions to some of the best bays in the area, including Chahue, Tangolunda, Organo, and El Maguey. Look out for the impressive blowhole on one of the sheltered inlets. The amazing native marine wildlife you’ll see in these waters include several varieties of turtles, dolphins, and perhaps even a whale known to swim in the area’s warm waters. Back on land, visit the beach of La Entrega, known as Huatulco’s natural aquarium, and Tangolunda, where many of the exclusive hotels are located. Stop at La Crucecita to admire the church with its exceptional mural ceiling and impressively tall painting of Our Lady of Guadalupe.

To spend a day exploring a tropical paradise of fruit and flowers, Huatulco shore excursions to Hagia Sofia are just the ticket. Sample seasonal fruits like rambutan, one of the main fruit crops of the farm. You’ll love seeing this hairy tropical fruit that resembles a lychee when peeled and tastes like a sweet combo of lychee and kiwifruit. Wander down a creek trail that stretches through a colorful exhibit of flowers, foliage plants, and trees, and be amazed at a natural habitat for butterflies and birds that awaits at the end of the trail. 

Active adventurers on a Huatulco cruise can experience the flora and fauna of the area on a whitewater run down the Copalita River in Class I-II waters. A guided raft tour that takes you on a gentle descent while navigating some easy but exciting rapids is a perfect way to take in the tropical, jungle-like beauty of the Mexican countryside.
