Be very honest about yourself when you choose what you want to do! Make sure you know that you are going to 3rd world countries in the tropics. They have two seasons: hot & wet and hotter & wetter. You will get hot and sweaty and you will see poverty (not Africa poverty, but still disturbing to some Americans).
May I know what are the fun things to do in Huatulco? I love shopping. Are there any flea markets in Huatulco where I can buy cheap souvenir items? Thanks.
