Visit Ixtapa for a first-class look at Mexico’s Pacific coast. Once a coconut plantation mixed with tropical mangroves, modern Ixtapa provides a multitude of high-end tourist facilities to please any traveler. Sign up for any number of excursions and activities, including fishing charters, boat rentals, sightseeing outings and snorkeling — all great ways to enjoy the Ixtapa sunshine.
After you settle into one of the elegant resorts nestled into the green foothills of the city, enjoy the peace of simply lounging on Ixtapa’s beaches. Check out Playa la Ropa for water sports, or Playa Vista Hermosa for a more relaxed time at the beach, or Playa Las Gatas for a completely peaceful time at an isolated beach accessible mostly by boat.
Let the waves provide the best soundtrack to your outing. Once you're hungry, make your way to one of the many Mexican seafood restaurants to try some shellfish, lobster, sailfish, tuna or marlin, all freshly-caught by the local fishermen.
