#34 Huatulco, Mexico
Population: Just over 20,000
Average Annual Temp: 84°F
Huatulco is located in Mexico’s state of Oaxaca on the south Pacific Coast. This area of Mexico is particularly desirable because of its jagged coastline, 330 days of sunshine and warm turquoise waters. But the small legendary town of Huatulco is especially extraordinary because it’s a protected “green zone,” reserved by the Mexican government.
Bahias de Huatulco National Park preserve is a booming tourist development of lux hotels, restaurants, nightclubs and golf courses. Yet, the town operates on 100% wind-driven renewable energy. Huatulco offers modern Huatulco International Airport, a new hospital, national supermarket and department store chains, and new highways leading to the capital city of Oaxaca.
This combination of modern, eco-conscious infrastructure and untamed Mexico makes Huatulco an ideal spot for conservationist expats and investors. A variety of fresh and affordable real estate options are available here, including large beachfront and ocean view lots, private golf course villas, and new condominium complexes and subdivisions.
