Cheap Flights to Huatulco

The biggest little airport in Oaxaca state, this airport is about the same size as the region's other busy transport hub in Oaxaca City. Bahías de Huatulco International Airport (HUX) has modern, open concept design and its seaside location makes it seem much larger and more spacious. The architecture hides a sleek modern airport with all of the amenities and then some, as there are several upscale hotels and luxury resorts on the bays nearby. It’s a traditional design that’s simple, functional, and recalls the idyllic seaside palapas that are strewn along the nearby beaches, which are some of the most beautiful and pristine in the world.

What to see and do in Huatulco.

Everyone loves Mexico. The tropical beaches, food, art, and shopping are all reasons to visit. Huatulco has all of that, along with a few unique features that you won’t found elsewhere.

  • Ecotourism. Modern development arrived here rather late, at about the same time as eco-tourism, and as a result, most modern development in the Huatulco area is subjected to rigorous environmental standards. The city itself is designed to resemble a village in a jungle and there is green space everywhere, along with several natural preserves like butterfly gardens. This extends into the nearby bays if you are fishing, snorkeling, or boating.
  • Medical Care. Mexico is a pleasant and inexpensive place for both medical and dental care, and Huatulco is home to both a variety of private clinics and one of the best public hospitals in the province. The IMSS (Mexican Social Security Institute) administrative offices are here as well if you’re a temporary resident or retiree who is eligible to apply for the socialized system.
