The modern, burgeoning vacation area called Bahias de Huatulco (pronounced wah-TOOL-co) is built around what is known as the Nine Bays of Huatulco, comprised of 22 miles of coastline. Over the last 30 years or so, but particularly over the last 10 years, the Mexican government and developers have been transforming this area from a sleepy fishing village to a vacation mecca, but with careful planning and strong consideration to preserving the ecology. Each of the Nine Bays of Huatulco has is own personality but they all share beautiful waters, fine white sand, calm waves and dramatic landscapes in the shadows of the Sierra Madre del Sur mountains. The nine bays are Tangolunda, Chahue, and Santa Cruz, which have already been developed for tourists; and the so-far undeveloped bays of Maguey, Organo, Cacaluta, Chahacual, and San Agustin. Tangolunda is the most developed and most upscale of the bays and the place where you will find the most poplar beaches. Here, you will want to check out the beaches on the western shore of Tongolunda Bay near the Club Med and the Sheraton. Many opportunities here for great swimming, snorkeling and all types of water sports.
