which place (beach) to chose?

Hi!

we are planning to travel around Oaxaca state and then to Yucatan by car at the end of april.

We plan to spend 2 nights - 3 days on the beach. we are chosing between Mazunte, San Agustinillo, Zipolite, Puerto Angel, Huatulco...

we would like to choose the most beautifull beach, where we can swim (cause we dont surf) and buggyboard if possible, we are not looking for the place with planty big hotels, bars and restaurant (as cancun because we will go there later) but several bars restaurants on the beach is a plus :)

Guys who have been in these places - which is your favorite? which do u like more and why?

1. Re: which place (beach) to chose?

There's a description of beaches/towns west of the Huatulco airport in the Huatulco Forum page top questions. The best, in my opinion, is San Agustinillo. One end has restaurant and palapa bars while the other end is completely undeveloped....totally your private beach. The headland outcroppings minimize the dangerous rip-tides that are so infamous at Ziploite. Mazunte is a busier beach with more beach development. P-Angel is more of a working harbor. Because you have a car you can choose a base spot and explore. These towns are only minutes apart. There is a good photo of S-Agustinillo and plenty of other info at http://www.tomzap.com/atinillo.html
