The thatched roof casitas of the Bahia de la Luna hotel are nestled around a beautiful bay that has
one of the best swimming beaches in the area. The accommodations may be simple, but the location is
stunning; it is incredibly private and secluded and yet only a short drive to the nearest town.
You may share the pristine bay with sea turtles, manta rays, dophins or even whales, whilst a rich
variety of birds and wildlife inhabit the hills behind the beach.
The casitas have either one or two bedrooms and work well for families.
They have electricity, good ceiling fans and nice bathrooms with showers (though the water
in the showers is not heated).
All meals are served in the delightful beachfront restaurant,
where fresh fish and seafood are specialties and the prices are very reasonable for such
beautifully prepared dishes. Lunch is offered a la carte and the three course set dinner
menu changes daily, but dietary restrictions can be catered for.
This tiny hotel is reached by a steep and unpaved road that is just about accessible with a regular car
(an SUV would fare better). The nicest way to arrive is by boat from Puerto Angel. Either way, the
nearest airports are Huatulco or Puerto Escondido, both of which have regular connections with Mexico City.
Road and water taxis can be arranged from the hotel, so if you don't want to rent a car then you'll still
be able to get around.
There are some good sightseeing attractions nearby, including the National Turtle Center at Mazunte,
and the ecological park la Ventanilla, where you can take a boat ride through the mangroves to look
for crocodiles. Excursions to these and other places can be arranged at the hotel, along with fishing
trips or boat tours of the nearby bays.
This is not a glitzy or fancy resort, but it is highly recommended as a barefoot and
get-away-from-it-all adventure in this relaxed and scenic corner of Mexico.
