  1. Interesting. The breakfast does sound fun, but I can imagine that getting old pretty quickly.

    Haven’t had Mezcal but do love a round of tequila, so will make note for my next visit =)

    I adore seafood. And man, you take really good photos.

    Mmm, it all sounds quite wonderful….except for the grasshoppers. I just don’t think I could ever mentally get beyond the fact of what they are.

      @Andy ~ I’m not much of a hard alcohol fan myself, but I did take a shot and it felt like a healthy, burning dose of tequila. If you get the chance to try it, let me know what you think.

      @Sabina ~ I heart seafood too. It’s probably the one big downside of living in the desert. 🙂

      @Gray ~ I had the same thought about the grasshoppers, but I had to get over it and try them. How could I not? Honestly, they really tasted pretty good, but you’re right, they’re still grasshoppers.

  4. Sounds like a pretty glorious culinary journey through Huatulco. I’ve been in Asia for over a year now and missing some the delights from Mexico. I could really go for that seafood platter!

    Oh man, I miss the guacamole! SO GOOD. You actually made grasshoppers sound appetizing…big props to that.

    • JoAnna says:

      Yeah … Mexican food doesn’t get much more authentic. And I really would try those grasshoppers again.

    I was in Huatulco last August and had the best meals!!
    There is a place called Los Bocanos right off the main road past the hotels area gon south. It is a small neighborhood that ends at a lovely each. There is a river runoff into the ocean just 100 yards away. There is a restaraunt on the beach that serves Australian Blue Claw crawfish. They are very large and have a great taste and the texture of lobster. They are a freshwater species that they get out of the river. The most laid back place in the world. My idea of paradise.

      Thanks for the tip on Los Bocanos. I’ll have to check it out next time I’m in Huatulco.

      I agree … the seafood there is definitely among the best I’ve ever had!
