Super fun day sunbathing, swimming and boogie boarding. Be very aware!!! Cabs will drop you off but not come to pick you up!!! We were stranded for an hour at the end of the day and ended up reaching our hotel who sent a car to pick us up

The La Bocana area is quite small and rugged. The beach itself is wild, untamed and not many tourists, which I like. I walked along the beach for a while, and saw some good size waves coming in, it’s a really cool beach.

Stayed in a house on the beach, excellent staff making breakfast lunch and dinner. There was a cocktail bar under the house for the public and it was unbelievable. What a hidden gem, the bar was run by a local mezcal farming family that not only made awesome drinks but decorated the bar in amazing art.
The home was just down the road from the local town centre and it was a very safe traquil place to stay with the family.

We went to Playa La Bocana with my family. We did the mud bath, it was such a neat experience!
The ocean has strong currents there so we couldn’t swim but we washed off all our mud going in only to our knees. I loved to watch the ocean waves and listen to the sounds. It’s definitely a place worth going to.

Some of the Huatulco beaches are small and quite sheltered. Playa la Bocana is a great alternative if you want space to walk, view bird life, or have some time on your own. The services are more limited than in town but there are two restaurants with seating.

This beach was better than expected, and worth the taxi drive from the resort area (Park Royal Beach). Great place to body surf or frolic in the waves. Also a great place for long walks on the beach.

It is not too difficult to find the mud bath ladies, with their buckets of mud. If you don’t see them, just ask around. They are by the restaurants or on the beach. I think the cost was 100 pesos.

They just apply the mud on you while standing on the beach. So you are putting on a show for the others at the beach! They let the mud dry in the sun, and then they rub the mud off. After that you wash up in the ocean,

Beautiful, long , flat, wide beach. Huge surf. Totally empty! Due to covid I’m sure. So we couldn’t try the little cafes. But lots of walking and great waves. We will come back next year.

A visit to Play La Bocana is part of every trip to Huatulco for us. Starting with a great lunch and beers at Los Gueros and then to-go beers for a walk to the river. The food is fresh and awesome but you better have a healthy appetite or share.
