Mazunte and its coastal wildlife
Mazunte is a tiny undeveloped spot along the south Oaxaca coast and has some spectacular beaches and nature. Don’t expect luxurious resorts… it’s a quiet spot with basic hotels and ecological lodges, popular with visitors who are looking for a more natural environment far from the crowded resorts. Its beaches are the breeding ground for sea turtles and if you go out in one of the small boats, you are sure to see dolphins and flying manta rays in the deep blue seas. Nearby are some spectacular lagoons and mangroves complete with crocodiles and tropical birds.
