I asked Joe to take a photo of me while backlit by the sun so I would look like an angelic beach angel. Totally worked.
On our last day of the trip, I was recovering from tummy troubles, but still managed to win the “surfing” competition down at the pool. (I probably only won because I was the only contestant who hadn’t been drinking, haha.)
This is the right half of the resort.
The sky bar was in the center of the hotel. The view was so cool during sunrise, sunset, and really all times in between. We took to drinking sueros which is a non-alcoholic drink that is supposed to help you rehydrate after being in the sun all day. Important for Minnesotans who haven’t seen sunlight in six months.
The hallway to our hotel room.
And our hotel room. Housekeeping kind of went crazy with the rose petals. This isn’t even one of the grandiose displays.
I didn’t take a lot of food photos this trip. I was too busy shoving it in my face. (MAYBE that’s where the tummy troubles came from.)
Here are photos from our three levels of Huatulco excursion.
^^^This was the first “level” of Huatulco. Beautiful views, even for the dry season.^^^
Below is the town of Santa Maria. Unlike Cancun and Playa Del Carmen, Huatulco is much smaller and quieter. Tourism is not nearly as developed, but it’s a peaceful area with a low crime rate. The businesses here produce goods mainly for the people of the town, not tourists. We were told that much effort being made to make Huatulco a sustainable tourist area so that the environment is protected and so are the people who inhabit the area.
We watched these tortillas get made and then we got to eat them. SO good.
