Like two vacations in one. Set against lush green mountains, this tropical beauty offers all the modern comforts of luxury resorts, and all the charm of a sleepy seaside village. Located less than 6 miles apart, Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo combine to deliver the best of both worlds. Ixtapa invites you to experience some of the best watersports on the southwest coast of Mexico, plus award winning golf courses and a wide variety of luxurious accommodations. Zihuatanejo is a classic Mexican pueblo – unpretentious and serene. Explore centuries of tradition along cobblestone streets as you uncover intriguing native markets and seaside cafes. Lay back, pick up the pace or do a little of both and enjoy two great vacations in one. This region offers a surplus of fishing charters, watersports and scuba diving and snorkeling sites. Horse backing riding on Playa La Ropa and Playa Linda are popular among many travelers. Those that wish to worship the sun will find busy beaches as well as isolated tropical oases.
