Huatulco is a beautiful beach destination where lots of people come to sunbathe and have fun swimming in the ocean. You can definitely find lots of things to do in Huatulco to fill the day, but what about your afternoons? Here are 5 ideas for spending an unforgettable evening in Huatulco or its surroundings in the state of Oaxaca.
These are the perfect companions to all the tours and activities in Huatulco you enjoyed during the daytime.
1. Take a walk along the Santo Domingo boardwalk
What better than a relaxing walk through the Santo Domingo walkway in the city of Oaxaca? You will spend an evening enjoying the different views and colonial attractions of our beautiful capital city, near Huatulco.
2. Watch the sunset in Punta Cometa
There are few things better than watching the sun set in a paradisiacal place. Punta Cometa is one of the southernmost places in the state of Oaxaca, and the temperature and ambiance there are just perfect! Moreover, there are Seven Bays of Huatulco that always provide awe-inspiring views regardless of the time of day.
3. Count stars by the beach
Along the coast of Oaxaca we barely have any light pollution, creating beautiful starry skies. Most nights you can see innumerable stars in the beautiful sky, but nights with a new moon are the most magical! You can go to almost any spot from La Bocana Beach to the mouth of the Copalita River, right next to Huatulco.
4. Experience bioluminescence
Bioluminescence is a light spectacle created by microorganisms that “create” light thanks to chemical reactions triggered by movement. To dive into the water and emerge literally covered in bright lights is a unique experience you shouldn’t miss!
5. Meet for coffee in the mountains!
Usually people gather in the evening to drink coffee, right? Well, how about meeting for a cup of coffee or, even better, hot chocolate 3,000 meters above sea level? Even more, what about drinking the coffee fresh from a plantation, after refreshing in the Sierra Madre Waterfalls nearby?
The region of San Jose del Pacifico has low temperatures in the mornings and evenings that are rarely higher than 64 °F (18 °C), perfect for enjoying a hot beverage! And of course the best hot beverage you can have here is a delicious, 100% local, chocolate!
