Huatulco Life was inspired by people with a passion for Huatulco and the Mexican lifestyle. It is a place to find out more information about the region and enjoy the beauty of the Oaxacan coastline through the photo gallery. From time to time, other interesting tidbits about Mexico make their way into the pages of this blog. Enjoy!

The Passing of Hurricane Carlotta
Well, we consider ourselves lucky after Hurricane Carlotta rolled through Huatulco this past weekend.
We didn't sustain a direct hit, and unfortunately, the communities of Puerto Angel and Puerto Escondido were hit harder.
The clean up is happening as I write this and Huatulco should be back to normal shortly.
Some of the smaller communities outside of Huatulco were not as lucky as structural damage was more significant, and three lives were lost. The intense rains brought mud slides and flooding to these smaller areas and the aftermath will be felt for much longer.
We are very thankful for the first class infrastructure in Huatulco, things could have been much worse.
