Cool place to visit. Crocodiles are awesome! The shopping was fun! The pico and salsa were the best I've ever had! The men dancing on the pole and swinging down upside down was fun to watch.

Located at the base of a fishing pier which boats locate on to go to Ixtapa Island. The beach is super clean and you could walk for miles to the north.

We have a property in Pantla just a couple of miles inland from playa linda Blvd. is a great place and playa quieta is also close by, the restaurants in playa linda are good the ones close to the dock are much cheaper and very fresh fish. All around playa linda beach and town is agreat place and the ocean well you all have made a great description of it.

Hola! estaremos hospedados a 2 cuadras de la playa Madera. Según entendí, para ir a la isla Ixtapa hay que tomar una lancha en Playa Linda. Alguien sabe cómo llegar y si es muy lejos?
