Today at home, sitting in front my computer I remembered a trip I made few years ago, and I think why not share some pictures and experiences I lived in this trip.


I went on December and it was fun, but I dind't feel it, becouse in Mexico City December is cold, there was my first December holiday on the beach.


It all started with the big wish to take my holidays in the beach, I went with my Mom, my uncle and a cousin. We went for a week to Huatulco only for rest, because this place is very quiet.

Huatulco it's locate in Oaxaca, México, a few hours from where I live, we took an airplane but It was late, so we have to spend a lot of time in the airport, that was terrible because the only we want was swam in the beach, after the time we spend finally we arrived, bit tired but happy.


When we get there the only things we made was, ate, swam and sleep! (well, most of the time we do that) but one day we decided to knew some beaches around, magical places with a lot of vegetation, clear beaches, sunny days... in some of this beaches you have to ask for permission to swim or camp there, because the government take care a lot this beaches.

The most famous is Tangolunda, the surf beaches are calm and the water is blue-green. For example Bahía Santa Cruz another beach, it's an ecologic reserve because most of the coral reefs are there. When we took the tour, we stopped in Santa Cruz, there we had the opportunity to dive, for me was an extraordinary experience, I saw thousands of fish, some big, some small and feel they are around of you was really nice.


And well, we knew the downtown of Huatulco, here you can find, restaurants, markets, souvenirs, etc, we only went there in the afternoons only for walked.

Mexican beaches are really beautiful, some are just to rest and others to have fun or maybe have both. Maybe you know or have read about Acapulco, Cancun, Los Cabos, Veracrúz, Mazatlán, etc, I do not know all but I wish go there one day.


I hope you enjoy the pictures.

    Yes, I enjoyed looking at the pictures! :) The view was amazing. Wow. :) The beach is as beautiful as the beaches here in our country. I just don't get to see them because I'm too far and besides I don't have time unfortunately. Well, I'm glad you shared with us your fantastic experience. :)

    Looking forward to the next blog,
    Shei :)

    Great pictures indeed. I really like to go to quiet places or better say far from the madding crowd where I could feel the peace of the place and relax. My city Karachi is a city by the sea, but I guess it's been more than a year since I last went to the beach and had a jolly good time around.

    Have a great day!

    Hello Mitzy

    I enjoyed reading your blog, it's very interesting. I think Mexico's beaches are beatiful. I wish I had the opportunity to know Huatulco but that will be when I will have free time because now I'm very busy. I'd like you'll talk us about traditions on days how dead's day in wich we make a tribute an our ancestors and dead relatives. Or if you want you can talk us about whatever other holiday celebrated in Mexico. Do you agree with me?

    Looking forward to your next blog. Greetings

    Hi dear Mitzi,
    How have you been?
    I've read your last post with so pleasure. I'm delighted and immediately after reading your post (because that's really interesting) I found some russian speaking touristic sites with comments about them Mexican journeys and also almost all of these comments were excellent about your country, and it was caught my fancy, I quite believe it.
    And I'm very impressed how you use some very difficult turn of phrases in English. Does your English Teacher Jo helps you sometimes? Please write again today and another pair days too.
    About any national dishes I always prefer some fastfoods and better I shouldn't say anything, I understand nothing all the same in this things, but your pictures with Mexican foods looks appetizing, it's the truth.
    By the way, do you know, where are those first five comments which were in your topical post Mexican Food? Now I can't found them any more. Why?
    Hi Guillermo,
    nice having you in our Blog! Please, join us! Say hello to your dear English Teacher Jo from us!
    So long! Talk to you soon :)

    Hello Mitzi!
    I'm from Siberia (Russia). It is so far from the sea... We have so little sun here... I don't think in Mexiko December is as cold as in Siberia! We had snowing here a week ago... You are lucky to have such a nice plase only a few hours away!

    Your photos are remind me my holidays on yacht in Croatia. It was a good time when I was there first time. I saw dolphins first time, drive boat first time. The most amazing natural phenomenon was blue cave and the most funny was when we stucked in the shallows. When we racing we were 3rd from end but it was funny too becose it was calm and we blowing in the sails for us to go faster. Unfortunatly I can´t had camera by that I have no photos.the nature on coast was amazing too. Unfortunatly we could not go on beach very often but few times we had to sail into the marina there were nice trips to castles or markets. If I can I want visit Middle and north of South America.And I must take my camera.
