Aircraft will circle once to the left over the bays both on arrival and departure. Passengers seated on the left-hand side of the aircraft will have the best view.

Ground Transportation

Private Flying

    Flight to Huatulco Webmaster, Tom Penick, records his February 2008 flight from central Texas to Huatulco in a Piper Arrow.

    While in Huatulco I also took a sightseeing flight and photographed 60 miles of the Oaxacan coastline. See Photographing the Playas.

    In 2016, the Huatulco airport had avgas and tiedowns (wings only) but no ropes were available. Gas may be paid for in pesos or by American Express (no Visa or Mastercard). Airport personnel were very friendly and helpful. The Comandancia office is inside the general aviation area and the Operaciones office is outside facing the tarmac.

Wear a Hat

The airport is a lovely open-air palapa-type structure. It is advisable to wear a hat to protect against bird droppings.
