Know More about this tour

Meet your guide upon hotel pickup in Huatulco and head downtown to La Crucecita, meaning ‘Small Cross.’ You’ll have water and soft drinks available aboard your air-conditioned minivan along the way. Start your sightseeing tour at the zocalo (main square), which together with the park, cathedral, handicraft stores and cafés create the ambiance of an authentic Oaxacan town.

Stroll around the square and visit its famous Church of the Virgin of Guadalupe, which honors the patron saint of Mexico. Inside, your guide will point to the cupola where a 65-foot (20-meter) tall paining is said to be the largest of the Virgin in the world. Not to be missed is a stop at La Probadita, a locally owned boutique selling traditional Oaxacan products. Here, you’ll find all manner of keepsakes and also visit the weaver’s workshop to learn about pre-Columbian weaving.

La Probadita features a wide variety of mescal, an alcoholic beverage made from the maguey plant, native to Oaxaca. Try a shot of mescal with salt made of maguey worms, paired with specialty snacks like quesillo (a type of Oaxaca cheese), chocolate and even chapulines (fried grasshoppers). These tasty local treats are fried in lime juice and salt — a fine contrast with the cinnamon-laced Oaxacan chocolates.

After sampling this local fare, hop back in your minivan for the return trip to your hotel.

  • This tour was very interesting and the tour guide was easy going and friendly able to talk with english and spanish tourist simultainiusly. The trip to LaCrucecuta was very good. The mescal tasting, the black pottery and the handwoven linens made for some interesting stops. The tour ended at the town square and gave everyone enough time to explore the square, the church, and the surrounding shops. I would reccommend Viator tours to my friends and others.

  • the guide took us all around the bays, lighthouse-Santa Cruz-mostly. Some pretty pictures there. Very limited time shopping in the little square downtown
    the church was lovely but he timed it right when a service was going on, so felt uncomfortable going inside to take pictures, or looking long at the beautiful friezes inside the church.
    also no beverages were offered to us.

  • A pleasant and informing tour .Our guide was very personable and did a good job of including Spanish and English speaking clients in theconversation.

  • Short trip, tour guide provide interesting information and give us plenty of time to take pictures and shoping
