Ixtapa Vacations

Ixtapa, Mexico is a beach resort twinned with its neighboring city of Zihuatanejo, a fishing village that's grown into one of the top tourist destinations on the Pacific coast of Mexico. Between the golf courses, resorts, and hotels in Ixtapa, not to mention the laid-back vibe of Zihuatanejo, and the fine beaches, seafood restaurants, and opportunities for water sports offered by both locales, Ixtapa vacation packages offer something fun for everyone.

Major Attractions

A vacation in Ixtapa can mean doing little more than sunning on a sandy beach, such as the two-mile-long Playa del Palmar, the main beach of Ixtapa. A wide range of concessions are offered, including massages on the sand, jet ski rentals, banana boat and parasailing rides, and horseback riding excursions. Another popular beach is Playa Linda, where you can visit the Cocodrilario crocodile reserve or take a boat trip from the pier to Isla Ixtapa. This sleepy island has one of the best swimming beaches in the region, as well as off-shore coral reefs where the snorkeling and diving opportunities are spectacular. Head into Zihuatanejo to shop at souvenir stores, arrange whale-watching trips, or pursue water sports on the bay. Visit the Zihuatanejo Museum of Archeology to see ancient Olmec and Toltec artifacts and learn about the region's cultural heritage. With Ixtapa car rentals, you can drive north to the surf spots of Troncones, or south to the picturesque fishing village of Barra de Potosi.

Recurring Festivals and Events

In March, Zihuatanejo hosts the International Guitar Festival, which brings guitarists of many styles to town for nightly beach concerts, galas, and special children's concerts. Celebrate Mexico's Independence Day with a parade in September and Dia de los Muertos with a colorful festival in the city's main square on November 1 and 2. New Year's Eve means live music and fireworks as you ring in the new year with a fiesta.
