Things to do Travel tips Map


Ixtapa is located 200 km north of Acapulco, and a 5-minute drive from the fishing village of Zihuatanejo. Situated 15 minutes from the endless beaches of Troncones, and about 30 minutes from the fabulous beaches and wildlife preserve lagoons of Barra de Potosi. All are accessible by car, taxi or bus service.

In Ixtapa, hotels line up along the beautiful, wide, golden sand beach. For the active minded, take part in world-class golf and the abundance of different watersports awaiting you. Enjoy a wonderful array of international cuisine, and sip margaritas as you marvel at the beautiful sunsets. Don't forget to pack your dancing shoes, as you will be swept away by the rhythms of the finest discotheques.

Zihuatanejo is less than 10km. from Ixtapa and can be visited by a quick bus ride or cab drive. For a true sense of Mexican culture meander through the cobblestone streets of this charming old fishing village and enjoy shopping at authentic Mexican markets.
