What do I need to know before moving to Huatulco?

Answer this Question

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Huatulco, they said...

"Huatulco is a popular destination for expats due to its beautiful beaches, warm climate, and friendly locals. Before moving to Huatulco, it's important to understand the cost of living, which is generally lower than in the U.S. or Canada, but can vary depending on your lifestyle. You should also be aware that while many locals speak English, particularly in the tourism industry, it's beneficial to learn some basic Spanish to help with day-to-day tasks. Healthcare in Huatulco is generally good, with several hospitals and clinics in the area, but it's recommended to have health insurance that covers you internationally. The crime rate in Huatulco is relatively low compared to other parts of Mexico, but it's still important to take standard safety precautions, such as not displaying wealth openly and avoiding isolated areas at night. Huatulco has a hot tropical climate, so be prepared for high temperatures and humidity, especially during the summer months. The local cuisine is a mix of traditional Mexican dishes and seafood, with many restaurants and markets offering fresh, local produce. Transportation in Huatulco is fairly easy, with taxis being a common and affordable way to get around. However, if you plan on exploring the surrounding areas, renting a car might be a good option. Finally, it's important to understand the local customs and traditions, as Mexicans are generally very proud of their culture. Being respectful and open to learning about the local way of life will help you integrate more easily into the community," mentioned another expat when asked about moving to Huatulco, Mexico.
