Top Snorkeling and Scuba Diving Spots in Huatulco

Top Snorkeling and Scuba Diving Spots in Huatulco

While most divers make a beeline for Mexico’s Caribbean coast, the Pacific coast is the place to escape the crowds. The sandy beaches and jungle-clad bays of Huatulco (Bahias de Huatulco) offer a perfect playground for outdoor activities and water sports. Here’s a rundown of the best Huatulco dive sites and snorkeling spots.

Cacaluta Island

On the cusp of the Huatulco National Park, the sheltered inlets of Cacaluta Bay offer warm water and gentle currents—a snorkeler’s dream. The best spots are around Cacaluta island, where common sightings include sea turtles.

Maguey Bay

The quarter-mile stretch of beach around Maguey Bay is lined with colorful corals that are teeming with tropical fish and marine life, while a series of underwater caves offer interest for divers. Cruises typically take in the highlights of neighboring Santa Cruz Bay and Organo Bay.

Chachacual Bay

This tiny bay is home to world-class snorkeling and one of the area’s most-loved beaches—Playa La India. The abundance of exotic fish makes for easy sightings, but strong currents mean it’s better suited to strong swimmers.
