Hello. Planning to go from luxury digs in Nuevo Vallarta Oct 1-Dec 31 2017 to Huatulco on Jan 1 2018 for 3 months. Maybe longer, if I decide to get a residente visa (and can you get that while on a 180 day tourist visa in Mexico, and how long is the process in-country?). My husband may or may not be with me (might part ways Jan 1 for a while). I am female, 70, and an extremely experienced traveler, semi-fluent in Spanish.
Looking for something that is basic furnishings (flat, condo or hotel) and that does not need to be on the beach but is pretty safe (by Mexican standards) and friendly and MUST have air conditioning and internet (everything else is only a plus). A cabana wouldn't suit me, as I just can't take the heat and humidity, even in winter. A good 2 to 3 star hotel would be OK with me as long as it is not Mariachi bands and filled with borachos all day and all night...you will get my drift on that, maybe.
How is transportation around the area and between villages?
I was in Huatulco last in the late 1980s when it was just getting off the ground. Love the jungle. I know I will be shocked at the development. Any advice as to towns up or down the coastline that are good alternatives, where I might find what I describe?
