Huatulco's Customs and Traditions

Discover authentic Mexico with its unique ways on this fascinating Customs and Traditions tour of local villages in the Tangolunda countryside of Huatulco. Here you will see the traditional lifestyle and admire the crafts of local artisans.

After leaving the pier, your professional guide will take you to see spectacular panoramic views of the Tangolunda countryside and learn the rich history of the area. You'll stop at La Crucesita, a small local village, where you can stroll through the charming main plaza and shop in the handicraft market and silver shops. Here, you'll find Oaxaca's famous woven rugs and black pottery, as well its carved wooden figures. The zócalo (main square) offers a wonderful ambiance with its shade trees, benches, and sunny walkways.

Stop at the Mezcal house to learn about this traditional drink, and sample other local culinary delights such as mole, chocolate, and quesillo. Before heading back to the pier, you will also visit a loom to see local artisans weaving traditional cloths.

Alberto is a jewel. He asked our preferences and modified the tour toward or interests. Very knowledgeable about the country and the state. One of the members of our group broke her glasses. He stopped at a glasses shop, got and estimate of time and money. Dropped the rest of us off at the port then took her and her husband back to pick up her glasses

Enjoyed our tour. Guide was Manuel and he was very enthused about Huatulco. Had tortillas and toured the herb garden. This was our best tour
