The beaches of Oaxaca are located well away from Oaxaca city, 8 hours by bus, 6 to 7 hours by car or just 30 minutes by air. The drive to the beaches (bus or car) can be an incredibly beautiful experience; or a very frightening one, depending on the conditions of the roads. It is not at all uncommon to find the roads washed out, or impassable, due to heavy rains.

You can fly to Huatulco or Puerto Escondido from Oaxaca. Flying will make the trip effortless, on your part, and relieves any of the worries about road conditions. If you must have a car, you can rent a car in either Huatulco or Puerto Escondido.


The coast of Oaxaca, at least for now, has remained one of México’s relatively undiscovered beach areas. At this point in time the Oaxaca coast has managed to preserve its natural beauty. The publicity blitz that is promoting Huatulco will slowly change this status. Hopefully this area will never become blatantly overcrowded.

The Oaxaca coast used to be one of the sea turtle’s worst enemies; lately it has become a savior of this endangered species. This is now one of the few remaining places in México that you can see these beautiful creatures on a regular basis, in any numbers.

Hotel Bahía de la Luna is in La Boquilla Beach, on the coast of Oaxaca. It is situated in an exclusive bay where you swim, sunbathe or read a book while relaxing on a hammock.

Visit with your couple, your family or friends. Have a cozy; natural and paradisiac weekend at the Hotel Bahía de la Luna, it will last forever.
