We were just in Huatulco at Binneguenda from March 5-12.....2nd time to Huatulco, but, first time to Binneguenda. Loved the resort, so close to get to Santa Cruz and about a 25 minute walk to Cruccieta. The staff were super friendly and the resort was modern and very clean.....just totally reno'd in 2010! Food was good, not, great, but, always a good choice. A la carte was Italian and is open Fri and Sat evenings...it was quite tastey! We ate out several times as well as we had friends staying at a bed & breakfast hotel, so we often joined them. We had a great lunch at Casa Major in Cruccieta, the balconey view there of the square was great! We had the best supper at El Rigeletto ( on Ocotilla street in Cruccieta)........tucked away location, but, the best Italian food and service. The portions were huge! Cafe Vienna has changed locations from the last time we were there.....it is now in Tongulunda across from the Barcelo. Manfred and his team there do not disappoint....................it was the best meal ever! Also a balconey location which was sweet too. Word of caution there though, it is a little more expensive ( worth every penny) and he doesn't take credit cards, so must bring cash! There is an ATM across at the Barcelo if you need more $.
We continue to love to spend a full day at La Bocana beach enjoying the scenery, the beach, the fresh seafood and had our first mud-baths this time from the " mud gals" on the beach. Worth every bit of the 100 pesos......................a must to do! Also hired a taxi and went to Puerto Escondido for the day...............surfer beach with huge waves, quaint shops and restaurants and a market. We hired Daniel for the day, he speaks perfect English as spent part of his childhood in the USA...............his cab # is 11781 if you want to hire him anytime. Say hello from us too. Temperatures are guaranteed hot there, and we had temps from 28 to 36 each day................cloudy one day, which was a nice treat! Any questions, just ask and we'll try to answer them for you. Have a great holiday in this safe and very Mexican location! Hasta Manana Huatulco!
