Bahias de Huatulco is the most recent tourist destination to be developed by the Mexican Government. Huatulco's tourism industry is centered on its nine bays thus the name Bahias de Huatulco. The principal tourist develoment is the town of La Crucecita. The population of Huatulco is 50,000 people. It is located on the Pacific coast in the state of Oaxaca. There are 22 miles of bays at Huatulco. Until resort development began in the 1980s, Huatulco was little known except as a coffee-growing area. In 1984, FONATUR (Fondo Nacional de Turismo), a government agency dedicated to the development of tourism in Mexico, acquired 21,000 hectares of land to develop a tourism center, similar to that in Cancun. This is a lovely area, but has no comparison to the other Mexican ports we visited, as it is virtually brand new. Noteworthy is that there are some villas and mansions beginning to appear on the hills surrounding the area.

here were some troubles on the site yesterday, I could not post photo till the evening, also could not write critiques to some persons. hard time for addicted :). Wooow, what a ship you travelled. I was on a cruise on the ship, noto so big, on Yangzee River in China. It was great. i am not seewolf. I am glad when I see the shores so along the big river is fine for me - Rhine, Mekong. My dream is to make such a trip on Mississipi, I do not know if it is still possible - probably very expensive. Fine POV with many mountains.

The distance between the trees and the ship is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the cruise ship. The morning light has a good effect on the colors. Have a nice day.

No doubt a splendid image with the great ocean liner docked at the port, very nice POV with these branches in the foreground perspective magnifies the sequence of several lines of mountains.
Very nice this soft colorful, wonderful light and optimal sharpness.
Have a good day.

This huge ship looks like can go on land as well! Nice matching of the windows of the ship and the balconies of the houses.

Trovo interessante queste foto ...degli ormeggi per questi giganti con 3500 passeggeri .
Da noi vi sono centri crociere costosissimi e spese portuali .
Qui una banchina leggera e tanta natura lussureggiante .
