Discover three of the most traditional villages in the Sierra Madre del Sur. You'll take in the beaches of Santa Cruz, the streets of Santa Maria de Huatulco and the coffee-growing culture of Pluma Hidalgo.
Tour of the Sierra Madre del Sur
Having picked you up from your hotel, we'll make our way to Santa Cruz, the main bay in Huatulco. Here we'll visit the viewpoint, from where you can admire the panoramic views of the Entrega and Santa Cruz beaches.
We'll make our way to the municipality of Santa María de Huatulco, a little town in the Sierra Madre del Sur. Our guide will tell us all about its history and the legends hidden in this little municipality, and its development over the years. You'll tour its main streets, its church, the old market, the main square and the Municipal Palace.
Then our route continues to Pluma Hidalgo. On the way you'll experience first hand the changes in temperature and vegetation that come with the increased altitude: Pluma Hidalgo is found about 1,300 metres above sea level, and is considered a perfect area for the growing of coffee. The odour of this black gold invades each and every corner of the little Mexican town, and will accompany you as you learn about the production of the final product: central to the day to day life of Pluma Hidalgo's inhabitants.
Finally, we'll visit a mezcal distillery, taking part in a tasting of this local speciality. Oaxaca is one of the few regions in the world which can produce true mezcal (bearing a Geographical indication in the same way as the Champagne region of France for its own signature drink), as well as maintaining the traditional method of production.
Having explored some of the most beautiful and traditional towns in Huatulco, we'll begin the return journey back to the hotels on the coast.
