Why Huatulco? Well first, my friends Phil and Wes have been there and both rave about it. However, more importantly it hits all the key points in my short list of what I was looking for at this time.
It's warm (one of the most southern places in Mexico)
It's a direct flight
It has a spectacular beach (although whether the water is warm enough for me we shall see)
It has nice hotels and a quaint village
It's not too Americanized
It's warm (think I said that already)
It's not too far away
The best thing about this trip is that we are going with friends so we get to share the fun together.
Oh, and my terrific House Sitters are available to come and stay that week, so not only are we set, but so are the dog and cat :-)
10 days and counting!
