Scenery from Oaxaca to Huatulco. We decided after much consideration to take Mex175. It was definitely windy and slow, but the road surface was excellent and not a lot of topes.

When I say windy, I mean unbelievably windy!!! I took a picture of my GPS for proof. I am on the 500m scale and we average 25-35km/hr in spots.It was extremely scenic when we were not in dense fog. I was kind of glad I could not see sometimes as my side tended to be on the outside and we were at 9500ft. No parachutes!!!

300m scale!!!!

 

Getting up in altitude here

There were lots of settlements along the way. The houses were perched on stilts on the edges of the cliffs. Lots of adobe built houses and wood.

Whew, we made it to Huatulco

Quoted from: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Huatulco

Huatulco (pronounced wah-TOOL-co) ("Bahías de Huatulco"), centered on the town of La Crucecita, is a tourist development in Mexico. It is located on the Pacific coast in the state of Oaxaca. Huatulco's tourism industry is centered on its nine bays thus the name Bahias de Huatulco but has since been unofficially shortened to simply Huatulco. You will find a wide variety of accommodations from rooms for rent, small economy hotels, luxury oceanfront villas, vacation condominiums, bed and breakfasts, along with several luxury resorts standing on or near the shores of Tangolunda Bay. The Camino Real Zaashila, Quinta Real Huatulco, Las Brisas, Dreams Resort & Spa (Formerly the Gala hotel) and the Barceló are examples of the most popular larger resorts in the area. Huatulco is located in the state of Oaxaca where the foothills of the Sierra Madre del Sur Mountains meet the Pacific Oceanapproximately 500 km south of Acapulco, Guerrero.[1]

 

We stayed two nights at Club de Playa Tangolunda

GPS Location:  15.77272  N    96.09976  W   Near Sea Level

Amenities include a water faucet, a dump station, restrooms with flush toilets and cold showers

Here is a sign indicating the prices. Remember the dollar sign actually indicates pesos as the same symbol is used in both currencies

eg: 50 pesos equals about $4 US/CAN

Huatulco itself is a Fonatur Resort that has all the infrastructure in place, but not a lot of hotels and shops yet. It is suppose to be the next Cancun once the toll road is completed to it from Oaxaca in 2013

This is the golf course resort next door to our campground

The beach was very nice, but so far all the hotels are all inclusive and if you want to shop or eat at a restaurant you have to go to the town about 10 minutes away.

Next stop Zihuatanejo & Ixtapa for their  wonderful beaches!!!
