What to do with the family in Huatulco?

It’s a great idea to take a family vacation in beautiful Huatulco, Mexico. It means having a chance to relax in luxury as you’re all surrounded by stunning landscapes. The combination of the imposing Sierra Madre Mountains and the astonishing Pacific Ocean will inspire the whole family to get out of your all-inclusive resort and really explore a nature filled world. So, what choices do you have for trying out the best family activities in Huatulco? It depends on whether you’re wanting to explore the area via land or by sea.

A good way to start is by taking the family on a city tour of Huatulco. Get acquainted with the village of La Crucecita, located next to the resort area of Huatulco, and let your guide introduce you to its colorful sights, including its church and marketplace. For the families who are passionate about history and culture, you can explore the Rio Copalita archaeological site and its pyramids, where you’ll explore ruins dating back to 500 BC. The kids will especially love this excursion, as you’ll go birdwatching and spotting the native birds of Huatulco. You can also take your family way up to the waterfalls of the Sierra Madre Mountains to get a throughly refreshing experience that’s ideal for visitors of all ages.

Should your family want to continue experiencing the magic of water, what better place to go than the ocean. The most comfortable way to do this is by taking a private yacht to seven bays of Huatulco, in which it’ll be only you and your family members exploring the blue Pacific Ocean. You can also try a shared cruise on the seven bays with guests from other resorts, this being a more budget-friendly activity. If the family just wants to take a dip in the blue Pacific waters, try an express snorkeling and jet skiing tour for a thoroughly refreshing time.
