Visit a lively church and its iconic painting

Ride a comfortable vehicle from your Huatulco resort to the neighboring town of La Crucecita, which means ‘The Small Cross’. A bilingual guide will start out your Huatulco city tour at the Church of the Small Cross (Iglesia de La Crucecita), known for its representation of the Virgin of Guadalupe. Her iconic image is displayed on the entire ceiling of this church, making it one of the largest paintings in the world. Your tour will also let you see La Crucecita’s main square, which comes alive with relaxed locals and visitors in the evening hours.

Experience Oaxaca’s foods and goods

Next, your guided Huatulco city tour takes you to the Mexican market with dozens of local vendors selling souvenirs, woven textiles, pottery, silver, and beaded jewelry. Make sure to check out the ‘alebrijes’ — wooden carvings of fantastical creatures synonymous with the state of Oaxaca. The market also offers fragrant aromas coming from the food stalls selling fruits, vegetables, chocolate and coffee. You’ll most likely get hungry, but luckily for you, there’s an array of traditional Oaxacan snacks and dishes, which you can purchase and enjoy before heading back to your resort.
