Staying Fit In Huatulco
Going away on vacation doesn’t mean that you have to hang up your fitness routine! If you are someone who loves to stay true to your fitness routine while you’re away, you are going to love the options available to you when it comes to staying fit in Huatulco!
Xquenda Spa, adjacent to Chahue Beach, is home to an olympic sized pool that you can use for a fee. Perhaps this can be part of a spa treatment day at this deliciously wonderful local day spa. What better thing to do than reward an intense swimming workout with an indulgent morning of spa services? This spa also offers a unique Oaxacan steam-hut experience.
Known for its mountainous terrain, Huatulco is a great spot to work on those hill intervals! The Huatulco fitness secret is to get up bright and early if you’re wanting to get a run in. With temperatures quickly rising with the sun, it’s important to hit the pavement as early as possible. Most of the main roads have sidewalks where you can run (the coastal road offers wonderful views). A great and easy route is to run along the main road from Santa Cruz towards Tangolunda Bay. I would highly recommend running with some drinking water, as the tropical climate can easily cause dehydration!
Local, Jane Bauer runs a great little yoga studio in Santa Cruz vicinity for all those yogis looking to keep up their practice while on vacation!Jane’s classes are open to all ages and ability levels. You can email Jane in advance of your trip to get a copy of her current schedule: email@example.com.
