There was another great article about our little eco-tourism haven in southern Mexico. Lonely Planet, one of the world’s most trusted travel sources just released this story about Mexico’s safest destinations and, no surprise, Huatulco made the list.
We will continue to promote articles that boast the safety of the area as we know this is a top-of-mind question for many travelers looking at the option of visiting any Mexican destination in this day in age.
Lonely Planet hails Huatulco as being “one of the rare success stories in modern resort development”. This point speaks to the extensive infrastructure planning that went into the area when ground was first broken in the 80′s. Huatulco made a commitment to maintain the status of a Green Globe destination through it’s incredibly eco-friendly sustainability concepts; from waste management to power generation.
In a previous article, written in Canada’s National newspaper – The Globe & Mail, there was a great deal of information offered about the realities of how safe it is in Huatulco. As we mentioned in our response post to that article, it has been so sad & unfortunate that all of Mexico has taken an enormous hit from the negative media propaganda that has sprinkled seeds of doubt into the minds of almost all travelers.
When there are so many places in the world to choose from for family vacation destinations, even the smallest doubt about travel safety is enough to turn a decision maker off. And, as a mother of three young children, I can absolutely relate to those concerns.
So, we take it as our responsibility to help educate vacation planners about the true safety of the area so people feel confident making plans to visit this incredible piece of paradise.
We will continue to post articles as we are made aware of them. We welcome any posts and/or contributions from other travelers who happen to stumble upon other stories they feel may be of interest to our readers.
Or, even better….we welcome readers to share their own testimonials about whether they felt the safety of Huatulco measured-up to or exceeded their expectations.
