With nine gorgeous bays that are part of a protected nature reserve, a rich cultural heritage, a vibrant food scene, and a laid-back vibe, Huatulco is one of Mexico's less-discovered gems. On this delicious journey, you will see the highlights of Huatulco and savor a taste of its bounty.

You're headed to La Crucecita -- Huatulco's charming town center. Follow your guide on a stroll through the zocalo --the lush main square, where musicians often play -- and visit the Church of the Virgin of Guadalupe to admire the ceiling. Alternatively, you can choose to enjoy some free time to set out on your own here, meeting up with your guide later at the appointed time and place.

Take part in a Mexican cooking demonstration. Taste homemade tortillas and quesadillas fresh from the oven, as well as regional products like mezcal (Oaxaca's smoky cousin to tequila) and chocolate that rivals the best of Switzerland. If you prefer to shop, you're in luck. La Crucecita is home to stylish boutiques selling a wide variety of handicrafts that you can opt to explore on your own.

Savor the moment when you dine at La Playa Restaurant, whose chefs have created a lunch menu just for your group. They take their inspiration from chef Andrew Zimmerman’s recipes, created on his own visit to Huatulco -- shrimp with green chilis and avocado-tomatillo sauce.

An easy walk returns you to the ship.
