We finally made it to Huatulco on Saturday evening and anchored in Bahia Chahua. We were too tired to set up the dingy to go ashore that night but we heard quite a party onshore until the wee hours. In the morning we went to visit the port captain in Bahia Santa Cruz, just around the corner, which was easy, and then strolled around the little town. It´s pretty touristy, clearly set up for cruise ship arrivals, but was also very quaint and filled with mostly locals - always a good sign.

We moved the boat over to Bahia Santa Cruz and after three tries with the anchor finally got a good hold just off of the beach. The bay is beautiful, with high cliffs, lush greenery and beautiful homes perched atop. It actually looks quite a bit like Corona del Mar, Calif, where I spent my summers growing up.

With the boat secured, we went ashore to celebrate our successful crossing with something (well, three things) we´ve been looking forward to for about two years now - guacamole, fresh fried tortilla chips and cold Mexican cervezas. We enjoyed a very leisurely day on the beach.

In the evening Andrew whipped up some excellent ceviche with the neverending mahi that we caught on the way in. This mahi had whiter and more tender meat than any we´ve caught before - maybe a sign of things to come?

This morning we walked to the little town of Cruceta which is great. There is a town square and lots of little shops, resaurants, banks, etc. We have already spotted a bakery and fresh vegetable/fruit market, so should be pretty well set. Depending on when we finish with our errands in town, we will head up to Puerto Angel either this afternoon or first thing in the morning.
