Exquisite beaches, gourmet restaurants, luxury hotels, scenic golf courses and world class shopping can all be found in Ixtapa, Mexico.
Spend a day at Playa Palmar and you may never want to leave – it’s the standard by which all white sand beaches are measured. Swimming in warm, crystal clear water and trying all the water sports available, will keep you busy for days.
Just four miles from Ixtapa lays Zihuatanejo, one of the few places left that hasn’t been overtaken by the traditional gigantic resorts, shopping malls and tourist attractions. There you will find magnificent beaches, quaint restaurants, and markets where you can experience local culture.
Ixtapa/Zihuatanejo has something for everyone: scuba diving, golf, snorkeling, horseback riding and more. For history buffs, there’s the Museo de Arqueología de la Costa Grande, where you will learn about how the culture of this region came about.
Those who love to eat, will find everything from gourmet restaurants to small, local hot spots right on the beach. Expect fresh fish and seafood on menus everywhere. The hot item when souvenir shopping is a hand crafted Guerrero mask. These, along with other local fare, can be found in craft markets.
