Eco tour in Huatulco: La Ventanilla and Mazunte
This is one of those activities in Huatulco a true nature lover would never miss out! Our eco tour in Huatulco consists of a trip to La Ventanilla to explore the mangrove forest and a visit to Mazunte, a paradise place in the coast of Oaxaca.
La Ventanilla is just an hour drive from Bays of Huatulco, it is a coastal community where we will go on a boat trip across the local mangrove forest. If you are into bird-watching you will fall in love with this place: at La Ventanilla we will see herons, woodpeckers, kingfishers, and diving ducks. We will also be a few feet away from impressive crocodiles, La Ventanilla's main attraction!
We will also stop at Mazunte on our eco tour in Huatulco. At this small beach town we will have the chance of visiting the Centro Mexicano de la Tortuga (National Mexican Turtle Center), a research center dedicated to sea turtles. Mazunte is a place where thousands of turtles lay their eggs, so the monitoring and protection duties of the volunteers of the center are essential for the preservation of this species.
To round up one of our most touching tours in Huatulco we wil go for lunch at a regional specialties restaurant (not included in the price of the tour), so you can enjoy the flavors, aromas and textures of Oaxaca.
