Next stop, Huatulco!

We're heading further south (actually more east than south!) this morning along Mexico's Pacific coast. Not going far, only about 120 kms (75 miles) to the resort town of Huatulco. No idea where we're staying, but there is a campground there and of course we have the tent if we need it.

We'll only be there for a night or two at the most anyhow.

Today's plan...only 120 kms (75 miles).

Just a short drive. As you can see, we're actually heading east today!

Yesterday was a bit of a relax day. We did head into town and we were going to go to the big Super Che grocery store but there was some kind of protest going on and they had the entrance blocked and they weren't letting people into the store. They had some signs taped to the wall, it looked like it was something to do with privatization of schools or something. No idea what this would have to do with a grocery store! Anyhow, we gave up on that and headed to the bank. Wanted to try and get some Guatemala currency. But the banks had been closed on Monday for some holiday and so there was a big lineup. Okay, so we gave up on that too!

Then, we had heard that David and Marina were in town. This is a couple that we had met at Playa Zipolite a few years ago. They're actually from the town of Perth, Ontario which is only an hours drive or so from our home city of Ottawa. Anyhow, they've got a little apartment rented here so we went over and visited with them for a while.

David, Marina, Ruth, and Kevin

In the evening, we had invited Mary and Alfredo over for dinner. They left the kids with her Mom, so they got a well deserved evening away. After dinner, we taught them how to play Yahtzee.

And so, we're outta here. We always enjoy Puerto Escondido, but it's time to move on. See you in Huatulco!

Oh, one last sunset photo from our balcony at the Sunset Point Resort Hotel!

Happy Birthday to Kevin's sister Alison! 


  1. Don't worry about getting Guat. currency. There will be lots of money changers at the border that will trade Quetzels for dollars or pesos.

  2. You've certainly had a beautiful place to stay. That view is amazing.

    Howdy R&K,

    Adios, may your travels be safe & fun!!!

  4. Those of us ex-pats who live in Huatulco (and many came here from Puerto), feel PE has devolved to a druggie-heaven. Too bad you're only spendiung a few days with us.

    1. Strange. We've spent a lot of time in Puerto Escondido and we've never noticed that problem. Each to their own, as they say.
