Huatulco Residential Zones

Santa Cruz

This region is home to many great tourist spots including marinas, shops, the local artisan market, restaurants, etc. Santa Cruz houses one of the main marinas (from which many of the boat tours leave) as well as the harbor where cruise ships dock.

The great thing about renting a villa near Santa Cruz is the fact that you can walk to almost everything you need to get to. There are restaurants, nightclubs, marinas, beaches, boat tours, etc. all within a 5-15 minute walk. This is not something that every region can boast!

The Santa Cruz beach (Playa Santa Cruz) greets many beach lovers looking to improve their tans. It is often a busy spot due to its proximity to popular tourist spots and the marinas. The calm waters off this beach are some of the best for swimming, snorkeling or scuba diving. There are spots close by that rent equipment or that can even take you out by boat to other, more remote beach locations.

In very close proximity, you will also find Playa Entrega. This 600 foot stretch of beach is one of the best locations for family ocean fun!

It is also home to one of the infamous historical events in Huatulco's history. Locals and tour guides will be anxious to share stories about how Vincente Guerrero, war hero and president, was betrayed by Francisco Picaluga on this very beach ultimately leading to his murder in Oaxaca City.
