It’s EASY to get here!
The most common question we get asked is, “How do we get there?” Well, it’s easy.
There are basically two ways to fly in. The first is to take a direct flight from the US or Canada straight into Huatulco(HUX). This is the best option for those who just can’t wait to slide into their flip-flops and jump into Gecko Rock’s amazing pool as quickly as possible. United Airlines www.united.com offers non-stop service through Houston.
An amazing option for our Canadian guests is Sun Wing Airlines www.sunwing.ca which is a charter airline that gets rave reviews for its outstanding service. Non-stop flights are available from Vancouver, Toronto, Calgary, Edmonton, and more!
A new player in the Canadian market, Westjet, also runs seasonal flights from a number of major Canadian cities at great prices.
Those looking to escape the frigid temperatures of Minnesota will be glad to hear that they’ve got their own separate option, a non-stop flight with Sun Country. www.suncountry.com
The second option, and the one that we HIGHLY recommend, is to fly into Mexico City and then take one of the low cost carriers down to the coast. Do yourself a HUGE favor and spend a day or two in Mexico City either en route to Gecko Rock, or on your way home. Mexico City is one of the most underrated cities in the world, rich with history, culture, and modern flair. It is one of our favorite cities and no trip to Mexico is truly complete without a stop-over in its vibrant capital. Additionally, the “via Mexico City” option is often cheaper, and also available year-round.
Mexico City Airport, Benito Juárez International Airport, is modern, clean and safe. From here you can take a pre pay taxi into the elegant and fun parts of the city, such as La Condesa or Colonia Roma. If your stopover is short, there are quite a few hotels in and around the airport, one of the most highly recommended ones being the Marriot Courtyard which is connected to terminal 1 by a walkway.

To get to Gecko Rock from Mexico City, there are 4 options:
- www.vivaaerobus.com (to Puerto Escondido)
- www.aeromar.com.mx/ (to Puerto Escondido)
- www.interjet.com.mx (to Huatulco)
- www.aeromexico.com (to Huatulco)
You can either fly into Huatulco Airport (HUX) or Puerto Escondido Airport (PXM) as we’re located between the two.
Special note concerning Viva Aerobus: Viva Aerobus is a budget airline that often offers very low fares, but bear in mind that they have a “no refund” policy. Even in cases where the company changes the flight time, they will not refund your ticket but only change you to a different flight or give you a voucher. If you are flexible then they can be a great option, because their prices are by far the cheapest and the flight from Mexico City is under an hour. On most days there is only 1 flight and so changes are not an issue, but on dates where they offer multiple flights, be forewarned that you may be moved to a different flight time if they do not sell enough tickets for the other flights and this can be an issue with connecting flights.
