How to arrive:
Located on the coast of the state of Oaxaca at 227 km, descending the mountain range Sierra Madre del Sur from the capital city Oaxaca, or at 400 km arriving from the Istmo de Tehuantepec, and at 65 min of Mexico City by air, there is also a terrestrial and maritime access (at present only by private yacht), where the warm climate permits enjoying 356 sunny days a year, with only 40 rainy days, as well as an annual average of 28 degrees celsius, with an average of minimun 18 degrees celsius in wintertime and of 39 degrees celsius at the end of springtime and during summertime.
The intense beauty of the zone is the result of its location in the foothills of the Sierra Madre del Sur, which is the cause of its uneven topographie of mountains, slopes and valleys, decorated by the rivers Coyula, San Agustin and Copalita.
The Bays of Huatulco, in the state of Oaxaca, have of course 3 kind of access:
1) By air:
By air, let’s start with departures of Mexico City, as it is the point where most of our turists are from, and neurological center of the Mexican Republic.
I) By Air we have following airlines::
Click Mexicana has in addition departures of the airport of Toluca, in the state of Mexico, with even lower prices than departuring from the capital city. We recommend to buy by your web page on mondays, doing so you could probably benefit some price advantages.
airlines flying from Mexico City. In the high season the flights are increasing in a disproportional manner of course.
Arrivig from Oaxaca, the only airline that flies regularly, is Aerotucán, departing usually at 8.30 am; sometimes, saturdays and sundays, they are leaving at around 2.30 pm. Please consult the exact itinerary directly with them..

We recommend to verify their itinerary consulting their web pages.
II) We have two main terrestrial ways
We have a departure by the highway to Puebla, (marked as number 1 on our map) highway Puebla-Oaxaca, (marked as number 2 on our map), and Oaxaca-Istmo (marked with the letter A on our map) on federal road. On this way, there is a diversion located 5 km before arriving to Tehuantepec, the transpeninsular road Tehuantepec-Salina Cruz of 25 kilometers, which saves you from a long strait full of rubs. The total distance of this journey is of 800 km. (11 hours of smooth driving).
b) We have three different long-distance bus lines:
Omnibus Cristobal Colon: Tapo (its principal departure point and most recommended), Central de Autobuses del Norte Taxqueña: via Puebla, a journey of 16 hours
Estrella Blanca: Taxqueña: via Acapulco, a journey of 14 hours. It works too with an Executive Bus. Ask for it. (The best service to Huatulco). The departures is Central de Autobuses del Sur Taxqueña.
Fletes y Pasajes: Terminal Fypsa, Calle (Street) Norte 9 Esq. Oriente 180, Col. Moctezuma, 2a. Secc., Mexico City. Three blocks away from the airport metro, (Tel. 958 587 03 54): via airport, a journey of approximate 12 hours, via Oaxaca-Pochutla.
In this case we recommend the departure from the Tapo, by Cristobal Colon, even if this is the slowest one, it has the best busses in quality, hygiene and comfort. In the case of Fletes y Pasajes, it depends a lot of which kind of bus they are using, sometimes first-class the Marco Polo, and sometimes second-class serviced by some nasty brand, in addition its journey is via the mountain range Sierra Madre del Sur, with a lot of curves.
Departures of other places:
South-southeast: (Chiapas) Connecting to federal road 200 to exit at Tehuantepec. (Marked as number 4 on our map).
South-southeast and Carib: (Merida and Tabasco) (Marked as number 5 on our map).

At the end of this highway there are 130 kilometers to Bahias de Huatulco, on federal road 200.
