Mexico destinations
In Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo, you will find one of the most beautiful beaches in Mexico. They are two towns located 240 kilometers northwest of Acapulco on the coasts of the State of Guerrero and separated only by 7 kilometers. With the typical characteristics of the Mexican Pacific, these natural paradise are distinguished by its beautiful beaches that contrasts with the exhuberant tropical jungle that drops through its mountains, to the golden sands of these pictoresque bays.

Two destinations in one, where the common denominator is the ocean: Zihuatanejo, “places of women” in náhuatl language was the first of the two cities and still conserves the traditional environment with certain provincial atmosphere and with typical characteristics of a fishing town with history and culture which contemplates with Ixtapa, “place of white sands” in nahuatl, considered as a modern tourism complex that is highlighted by its luxurious and comfortable hotels, its varied services infrastructure with its modern golf courses its varied night life and its countless natural attractions that can be enjoyed creating a perfect balance.

Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo has a very important historic cultural legacy, where the Olmecas once lived leaving behind the vestiges of its cultural importance, which you can currently appreciate in the Archeological Museum and in other museums where you will learn part of the region’s history. Ecologically, you can appreciate an exotic local funa with very particular colorful species in Estuario Grande; Petatlan, colonial town south of Zihuatanejo is recognized by its open air gold market. The exquisite cuisine must be highlighted.

In Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo you can enjoy the beautiful beaches of La Ropa and Linda Beach, with soft waves, ideal for resting and practicing all types of water sports, particularly windsurf. Close to this area you can dive among the coral reefs and coral banks or you can even go sports sailfish fishing in the area that hosts the Zihuatanejo Annual International Sailfish Tournament.

In its surroundings, covered with abundant vegetation, a visitor can go camping, do ecotourism and observe flora and fauna in the Palma Real Golf Club, characterized by ecologists as a true fauna reserve. From Linda Beach you can reach Ixapa island; for those restless people you can tour the Aztlán Ecological Cycling Park, an over 8 kilometer circuit, ideal for bikers, skaters and explorers; and you must not leave out the Aventura Park and Delfiniti Ixtapa.
