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!

Un Nuevo Amanecer Concert - February 4th

Hello Everybody:  Most of those who were in Huatulco last January and February and had a chance to attend the Nuevo Amanecer concerts agreed that they were the music events of the year.

Get ready to raise the roof again.  Mark Monday, February 4 on your calendar for an evening of cold beer and great music, and all for a good cause.   All proceeds from the concert will benefit Un Nuevo Amanecer, a nonprofit organization located in La Crucecita  that assists children with developmental problems.

The organizers of the Puerto Escondido Blues Festival have made arrangements to share with us their headline act for that week.  Thank you Billy!  Join us at the beautiful Latitude 15 beach club on Chahue Bay at 8PM on February 4 to enjoy the hard rocking guitarist Neil Chapman; the raw, soulful voice and emotive guitar skills of Chris Caddell; and one of Canada’s best blues harp players,  Paul Reddick. 

Tickets will be 250 pesos in advance and 300 at the door and  150 pesos for students and teachers. Tickets will be available at:

Café Juanita
Resort Real Estate Services
Palm Properties

Our promotion will be primarily through word of mouth.  Please help us by forwarding this to your contact list.  If you would like to assist with ticket sales, please let me know.

The Black Vulture

While not one of the prettiest looking birds in Huatulco, the Black Vulture is a very common sight.

It's range extends from the southwest United State all the way down the Chile in South America.  And although it's rather large with a wing span of nearly 5 feet, it is not the largest of vultures.  It's black plummage and characteristic hooked beak is easily discernible.

This scavenger will feed on pretty much anything and you can see it circling the skies looking for food with its keen eye sight.

Careful not to fall asleep while your tanning on the may find a flock of these circling overhead!

Sunset Over Huatulco

I caught this amazing sunset on December 26th over the Huatulco was a great way to end a day out on the water!

Happy New Year to everyone and we hope that 2013 is filled with your own beautiful sunsets!
