Ixtapa has it all, beach beauty, authentic Mexican culture with Zihuatenjo nearby, great food, service and shopping without feeling overly touristy. A best kept secret amongst Mexico vacation locals. Discovered many who have been going there for 20 years or more!

My husband and I have fallen a bit in love with Ixtapa Zihuatanejo. Found it on a Holland America Mexican Riviera cruise several years ago and this is our 6th visit to Ixtapa (four weeks this time).

We took as a family group what they call the city tour which included Ixtapa and Zihautanao. With this package our guide Antonio Flores took us up hillsides, that gave us spectacular views of both locations. The bay of Zih. is unreal, with views of many majestic homes, villa's and expensive get away inns, including Steven Spielbergs newly built vacation... More
