How to Get to Secrets Huatulco

The fare to take the Sur Bus from Puerto Escondido‘s ADO/OCC bus station is 78 pesos one way. Once you’ve arrived at the Huatulco Bus Station located in La Crucecita,  it’s a 10 minute taxi ride to Secrets Huatulco Resort at the end of Boulevard Benito Juarez ( it’s at the end of the hotel zone) and, there, situated on pretty Conejos Bay is the newest addition to the Oaxaca coast’s luxury scene – Secrets Huatulco Resort & Spa. Although a Nickelodeon resort and waterpark are planned for the property next to Secrets Huatulco, currently it’s the closest resort to La Copalita Archeological Site.

If you visit Secrets Huatulco to enjoy your day pass, you definitely need to made a stop at the stunning Sky Bar. While the 360 degree views from this centrally-located bar are fantastic at any time of the day, it’s especially memorable at sunset when the setting sun casts a warm glow on the stone and the flickering flames of the fire pits make it ultra romantic. You can often see herons diving for fish and humpback whales  migrating in the Pacific waters right offshore.

Another advantage of a Day Pass at Secrets Huatulco (and all Secrets Resorts) is that no reservations are needed for any of the restaurants. So whether you opt for the buffet, a seaside grill or a la carte dining you just appear at the check-in desk at the restaurant of your choice and the host or hostess will  seat you. In very rare circumstances there may be a wait.

My personal choices for the best dining at Secrets Huatulco include  Castaways ( swoon-worthy views plus steak and seafood) as well as Tamarindo ( authentic Mexican cuisine) where I enjoyed the best birria ( a beef stew redolent with spices and served with steaming corn tortillas) I’ve had since I was in Tepic, Nayarit.

Another fave feature of  Secrets and other AMResorts? Guests don’t have to wear those pesky all-inclusive wristbands!

A Secrets Resort Day Pass also gives you access to activities including non-motorized water sports so you can kayak the calm waters of Conejos Bay, go paddle boarding or participate in water aerobics or other classes. Two tennis courts, a fitness centre as well as a new jungle boardwalk for birdwatching round out the offerings.

You can even enjoy the beautiful Sky Bar at Secrets Huatulco on a Day Pass

    That is a phenomenal deal!! I LOVE Huatulco, Secrets definitely looks worth checking out for a week or just for the day. Great tip.

    YES, please! This looks like an amazing place! I’ve not yet been to Huatulco, but it’s very high atop my list. Hopefully sometime soon. Thx for sharing this offer.

    I’m not usually a resort person but you’ve made me reconsider. There’s nothing like all inclusive for relaxation and rejuvenation. It looks like a perfectly placed resort as well. Kudos.
