Good food and the beauty of nature are just a couple of the afternoon delights in Huatulco, Mexico.
After decompressing at the beach near our hotel, we found ourselves getting energized to explore the surrounding areas. Getting away from the Las Brisas hotel and experiencing the local food and culture is always a priority soon after we land anywhere. Mexico is so much more than beaches and resorts!
Nearby was a beautiful path along the shore that presented us with stunning views over the beach and water.
Booking a local tour was easy and inexpensive! It included transportation and lunch.
The first stop was an unassuming collection of tables, tarps and an outdoor kitchen, where we watched the food preparation with bug, hungry eyes. All the ingredients looked so fresh and delicious!
The buffet they laid out for us was an amazing taste sensation – all cooked on site, over a fire pit, in bubbling cauldrons. Eating outside was the perfect way to appreciate food and nature at once!
After lunch we made a short hike to this amazing waterfall! At the base was a swimming hole with a rope swing that was a ton of fun.
The natural beauty of Huatulco, Mexico, from waterfalls to beaches, parakeets to lizards, always amazes us.
