Peace and Quiet

After traveling ten months a year for my job, it's a bit stressful going home to big city living. I recently booked a trip to Huatulco on a whim for some rest and relaxation. A week a Casa Tulco was all I needed. The town and the beaches were what the doctor ordered, but house itself was relaxing enough for me to get refreshed. Great trip. Great accommodations. I can't wait to go back again!

Need some relief from the heat!!!

It is so hot in Texas with record setting days over 100 degrees F. I need a break from the oppressive heat. I think the beaches in Huatulco will do the trick. I am booked to be there later next week. Also, I just ran across some great rates to Huatulco from both Dallas and San Antonio at $330 RT and $359RT, respectively. Almost cost me that much for a round trip from San Atonio to Dallas recently. I cannot wait. Artiste.

Birds of Huatulco

One of our morning walks brought a special surprise when we happened upon a Colima Pigmy Owl’s nest. 

Black-vented Oriole  decided one of the palm trees by the pool was the perfect source of fibers for its beautiful nest, so for days, CasaTulco’s guests have watched as he laboriously picks at a palm frond pulling long thin pieces of fiber, one at a time, and then flies to a protected tree across the street from CasaTulco to weave its fabulous home

     A pair of Rufous wrens have been building                                                                                             their nests in CasaTulco’s cactus garden.                                                                                     

Wildlife  in Huatulco is always abundant,  and  never more evident than during the rainy season.  The end of May brings the first rains the jungle sees in many months, and with it, life springs anew in many ways.  The foliage that was completely lost during the dormant season becomes green and abundant in a matter of days, and the birds and butterflies seem to multiply all around us.


This June, we have had several wonderful storms that have brought much needed water to the jungle around CasaTulco. Most likely we will see a few more rain storms during the first part of July, and then again, the clouds and the sound of spring water will be a memory once again until next year’s wet season.


Amazingly enough, the jungle will remain green for many months and the wildlife that depends on it, will find a way to survive the long dry stretch ahead. 


During the past few weeks, we have been fortunate to have enjoyed the visit of many of Huatulco’s endemic bird species, as well as several migrant ones that make Huatulco home for a few months every year.


CasaTulco and CasaTeca

Perfectly situated in the Heart of Huatulco, The CasaTulco compound  is the perfect retreat  from it all.

The compound hosts two contemporary vacation rental homes, CasaTulco and CasaTeca.  Built in 2007 these two homes have become some of  Huatulco’s most sought after vacation rentals.

CasaTulco is the larger of the two houses, with over 5,000 square feet of living spaces.  It has four bedrooms and a spacious study/TV room with additional sleeping space.

CasaTeca, is a spacious 2,500 sf home with two large bedrooms. It can comfortably accomodate up to 6 guests.

The pool and gardens that wrap around the houses become your personal oasis  where you can soak in the sun rays, take a leisurley nap under the palm trees, or sip a delicious margarita under the stars in one of the rooftop terraces....

CasaTulco’s  staff is welcoming and friendly without being intrusive.  Katy, our cleaning lady and Alfonso our groundskeeper, will make every effort to ensure you and your family enjoy a wonderful and relaxing stay.   

We look forward having you stay at CasaTulco or CasaTeca!
