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!!!
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
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!!!
