Ixtapa is located on the Pacific coast of Mexico, between Acapulco and Puerto Vallarta. It sits facing west on a beautiful bay, close to the Zihuatanejo town (where the locals live) and a 30-minute ride from the airport. It was developed in the ‘70s in a well-planned manner, so it is not at all big or crowded like Acapulco or Puerto Vallarta. Its atmosphere is casual, relaxed and sporty (famous triathlon happens in May) and people are nice and helpful. Tourists include families, couples and honeymooners, mostly Mexicans but gradually more Ameri- cans and Canadians are discovering this beautiful place (due to various convenient direct flights from the US)

Besides relaxing, swimming, strolling at the beach and enjoying the most gorgeous sunsets, Ixtapa has all kinds of aquatic sports: sailing, fishing, scuba, skiing, parasailing, as well as 2 golf courses. some jungle activities and a ‘swimming with dolphins’ center.

Authentic Mexican food and seafood are excellent along with multiple other cuisine options like Italian, Japanese, International and French. There are a few clubs, and good options for shopping; yet Ixtapa is not overly developed or crowded.

I am originally from Mexico and grew up going to the beach all the time. Mexico has the best beaches at the best value near the US.
I like traveling to beautiful places and meeting interesting cultures while staying in down to earth but clean and pretty place. I hate resorts. ;-)
