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!

2013 ITU Huatulco World Cup Triathlon
This is the fifth edition and the second since they changed the date to May. And, just like clock work the weather gods are beginning to deliver a strong hit of humidity as the coastline begins to transition into the rainy season.
I'm sweating right now just thinking about the suffering that will be going on after they transition from the swim to the bike. As usual, the athletes will be tackling the "killer hill" on their bikes, and it will no doubt leave a few of the athletes begging for mercy!
I will be there, camera in tow, to catch all the action as the pros dual it out on Sunday. It's an 8:00am start for the ladies, and 10:45 for the men.
If you in Huatulco bring your sunscreen, lots of water, and a big hat to stay as comfortable as possible.
See you there!
