Textiles and pottery in Huatulco, Oaxaca

Textiles and pottery in Huatulco, Oaxaca

From Puerto Escondido, we drove half a day to Huatulco, in the state of Oaxaca. This town is bordered by big enclosed resorts and fancy personal properties on the ocean. Jared had to drive and look at nearly every beach possible, of which there were many. We realized this place would be an ideal place to take a relaxing vacation…it is not your typical beach town, as it does not have big hotels and...

Oh, and they do.  Watch out, folks…it might get into the 60’s!! p.s. I admit, I’ve joined the crowd of weather wimps. My daily attire now consists of jeans and a sweater, with warm fuzzy...
