Relaxing paradise found!
Just came back from a perfect vacation in Huatulco at Flor del Mar. My wife and I have been to Mexico many times in the past and once specifically to Huatulco. We have found a reason to stop looking for somewhere else to stay when travelling to Huatulco. The house is beautiful and in a perfect location for a completely relaxing vacation. The hosts made us feel completely at ease from the moment we started booking our trip. The hosts Joan and her son Guy feel like old friends after our trip. They are very helpful in planning day trips and providing whatever we needed to enjoy our stay with them. This was the first time we stayed at a B&B in Mexico and we see no reason to stay in a hotel after staying with Flor Del Mar. My wife is a vegetarian and they had no problem accommodating her meal needs. A breakfast every day is included in the stay and we planned to go out for most of our lunches and dinners. Over a 10 day stay we only ate away from the house for four meals! Everything prepared at the house was delicious, especially Guy’s guacamole! My wife and I are not partiers and this is not the place to go if you’re looking for action. The house is located in a quiet and gaited community with guards on duty 24/7 at the entrance. We never felt unsafe at any time. So stop fretting about going to dangerous Mexico. It is so welcoming and the people of Mexico, not just our hosts, are happy to have you there. The local beach is about 5 minutes away and only accessible to people in the community or via the bay, so it’s virtually private. The hosts give you as much privacy as you want and the house is large enough, over 10,000 sq. ft, that you can find a private spot to unwind. My favorite spot was the palapa. It is an open porch at the top of the house with a great view of the bay and two extra large hammocks to nap in. I would find my way up there every day to enjoy the peace and quiet and the wonderful view. The bay itself is great for snorkeling and swimming. Huatulco is smaller and not commercialized unlike Ixtapa and Cancun. This is the real Mexico. The price they charge for the rooms is a great deal for the service, comfort and relaxation they provide. Side note, roundtrip airfare from Chicago on USA3000 is $499 through July. Stay with Joan & Guy at Flor Del Mar. You won’t be disappointed!
