7.4 Magnitude Earthquake Shakes Huatulco – Home of Secrets and Dreams Resorts

Secrets Resorts

At a time when resorts are beginning to reopen after being shuttered for 90 days or so we’re sad to report that a deadly earthquake has rocked the resort town of Huatulco.  We’ll update this as soon as we know more as this is a developing story.

In a nutshell: The earthquake was in Huatulco, which is along Mexico’s west coast in the state of Oaxaca, and it was felt as far away as Mexico City and Guatemala.  This occurred the day after a 5.2 tremor on Monday shook the very same area.

The area did report damage to homes and buildings including a building collapse in Huatulco, over 30-buildings in Mexico City, power outages, and loss of life has sadly been reported.

Huatulco is rich in history and known for its stunning coastline, several bays, and Oaxacan hospitality.

AMResorts is assessing any structural damage at both of their all-inclusive resorts including Secrets® Huatulco and Dreams® Huatulco Resort & Spa. We have heard that the staff at both Secrets and Dreams Huatulco are safe.

Both resorts are due to reopen on July 1 after being closed due to COVID-19.

We’re watching this story and will update you on any changes to the area and if any change to the reopening date of these resorts.
