Fun FactBefore resorts started lining the Oaxaca state’s Pacific coast, the area around Huatulco was mainly known for growing coffee. You can still find coffee plantations dotting the region—plan excursions to nearby coffee farms like Finca El Pacífico or La Gloria to learn the local roasting process and score organic beans right from the source.
