The elegant shores of Huatulco provide visitors with pristine waves for surf lovers. Located directly in front of the villa is one of Huatulco’s only surfing beaches, offering a year-round consistent beach break for all levels of surfing. For the surfing enthusiast, within a two-hour drive up or down the coast will reward you with many world-class surf spots.
Let our friendly staff welcome you to your private beachfront vacation villa, the most luxurious in all of Huatulco. This hidden gem will comfortably accommodate up to ten people in four beautifully appointed bedroom suites.
Relax in either the indoor or outdoor living room; play on the beach or in the private infinity pool; enjoy the views from the numerous terraces; and dine in our open-air dining room on meals prepared for you by our chef.
You are able to gather together or find solitude in the common areas of the villa and then retreat to the privacy of your suite for some quiet time. No matter what you decide to do, Villa Escondida will have you feeling at home the moment you walk through the door.

With 16 different ethnic groups in Oaxaca overall, the cheerfulness of Huatulco can be felt in its colorful streets full of art, music, textiles, and original handicrafts. The area is notorious for intricately woven rugs, tapestries, and bags that have all been carefully handcrafted, giving guests a guaranteed selection of unique items to bring back home.
Surrounded by the Sierra Madre Sur, Huatulco hides within a vast and vibrant deciduous jungle that offers endless opportunities for adventure.

Villa Escondida and its surrounding community is a special place and we are committed to reducing our footprint on the planet and have several practices in place to minimize our impact.
We are passionate about hiring and buying local whenever possible. Our amazing staff members (Delfino, Rosa, Paulina, and Abi) all grew up here either down the street from the Villa or in the neighboring community of Copalita. Our chef buys produce locally sourced, our furniture in the Villa was made by local woodworkers/artisans, and even our house Mezcal is produced by a local Oaxacan family!
Huatulco was developed by FONATUR with a deep desire to protect its surrounding environment. Some efforts to ensure its sustainable future include reducing emissions of greenhouse gases, reducing waste, improving energy efficiency, and managing natural resources. In 2010 Huatulco received EarthCheck Platinum Certification; it is the only destination in the Americas to achieve this distinction.
Water is a precious resource in Huatulco as we often don’t receive rain for 6+ months! To reduce our water consumption, all rooms have low-flow water fixtures and dual flush toilets. We also change linens and towels every three days or upon request, which helps us to significantly reduce our consumption.
We have eliminated the use of individual plastic bottles and instead utilize an in-house filtration system to provide filtered water for guests.
Recycling and organic waste
Our staff obtains an additional income thanks to the sale of bottles, cans and other recyclables collected and taken to the local recycling facility.
Organic waste is collected after each meal and repurposed into food for the La Bocana neighborhood chicken farmer.
Villa Escondida is 100% powered with clean energy from Huatulco’s nearby wind electricity plant La Ventosa. In addition, the Villa has LED bulbs thought and our staff works closely with guests to help them reduce their energy consumption.
No single-use plastic
We have eliminated individual plastic bottles and instead utilize an in-house filtration system to provide filtered water for guests.
When it comes to cleaning, we consider the total impact on both human health and the environment. We, therefore, utilize Ecolab cleaning products that have a low impact on the environment but never compromise safety or performance. These Ecolab products are also used for the prevention of Covid-19.
