Bahia Santa Cruz
This region is home to many great tourist spots including marinas, shops, the local
artisan market, restaurants, etc. Santa Cruz houses one of the main marinas (from
which many of the boat tours leave) as well as the harbor where cruise ships dock.
The Santa Cruz beach (Playa Santa Cruz) greets many beach lovers looking to improve
their tans. It is often a busy spot due to its proximity to popular tourist spots
and the marinas. The calm waters off this beach are some of the best for swimming,
snorkeling or scuba diving. There are spots close by that rent equipment or that
can even take you out by boat to other, more remote beach locations.
The great thing about renting a villa near Santa Cruz is the fact that you can walk
to almost everything you need to get to. There are restaurants, nightclubs, marinas,
beaches, boat tours, etc. all within a 5-15 minute walk. This is not something that
every region can boast!
In very close proximity, you will also find Playa Entrega. This 600 foot stretch
of beach is one of the best locations for family ocean fun! The water is incredibly
calm in this spot making it very safe for small children. It is also home to one
of the infamous historical events in Huatulco's history. Locals and tour guides
will be anxious to share stories about how Vincente Guerrero, war hero and president,
was betrayed by Francisco Picaluga on this very beach ultimately leading to his
murder in Oaxaca City.
