Getting there & away
Some buses coming to Huatulco are marked ‘Santa Cruz Huatulco, ’ but they still terminate in La Crucecita. Make sure your bus is not headed to Santa María Huatulco, which is a long way inland.
The OCC bus station (587-02-61; Blvd Chahué) is on the north edge of La Crucecita. As well as 1st-class OCC buses, this is the terminal for ADO GL (deluxe) and Sur (2nd class). Estrella Blanca (EB; 587-23-30; Av Carpinteros s/n, Sector V), a further 700m from the center, has further 1st-class and deluxe services. First-class Turistar (587-06-82) also leaves from the EB station.
