We were in Huatulco for two days, so we were still in port for sunset on the first day. We had appetizers and dinner served to us on our verandah where we enjoyed the wonderful breezes while entertained by an ever-changing panorama of a lengthy, gorgeous sunset. Our verandah was perfectly placed; a lucky bit of serendipity indeed!
Local taxi service
We've been here before and had seen the surrounding countryside, so for this visit, we walked everywhere, including a visit to the lovely little town of Crucecita, a couple of miles away. While the trees along the way provided shade, it was still a very hot walk, so we grabbed a local taxi back to the ship. The charge: $2 USD.
Portside Wi-Fi Available
For both a snack and the internet we liked Dona Celia’s Lobster House, at the very far end of the row of restaurants along the beach right near the ship. Look for the flags at the far end of the row; the restaurant extends across several buildings. The proprieter handed us a card with the access code when we inquired about the strength of the signal before we bought anything, but the reception is much better inside the open structure, at a table. We enjoyed guacamole and chips, along with bottled drinks while we used the internet.
