 On the Mexican Riviera, about 300 kilometers from Acapulco lies Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo, a double dose of paradise for tourists. Both towns have a lot in common: a 25 kilometer coastline with lovely coves and inlets, a splendid year-round climate with average temperatures around 35°C, warm waters, and a wide variety of land and water activities for the entire family.
Ixtapa´s hotels spread out along El Palmar Beach near the Ixtapa Marina, a complex with kilometres of navigable canals, yacht clubs, golf courses, private houses, villas and condominiums, hotels and several restaurants. Playa Quieta, just north of the Ixtapa coast, is a lively beach due to its proximity to Club Med and also a great place for water sports. Even further north is Playa Linda, the new home of several hotels, including the Meliá Azul, which has a fabulous pool for children.

 La Ropa is Zihuatanejo´s main beach - its gentle waves make it a safe place for water sports. Fishermen come to Zihuatanejo in search of blue and black marlin, sailfish, tuna, roosterfish and Pacific Jack.

 For the best snorkelling, head for Manzanillo Beach to the south of Zihuatanejo, where there's also surfing, sailing, windsurfing, water skiing, banana boat rides, boogie boarding and kayaking.
 Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo has something for every member of the family. Although many enjoy the sun, others prefer to play miniature golf, watch birds, go on a boat ride to Ixtapa, or visit the small fishing villages. For more active visitors, there are horseback rides along the beach or in the jungle, mountain biking and excursions for all ages.
 Nightlife includes both Mexican fiestas and discotheques with techno music.
 There's something special in the friendly, informal atmosphere at Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo that makes it the prefect place to vacation and make new friends.

 What a difference with Ixtapa - which has a brand new tourist complex, with roads, shops and restaurants like in United States - Zihuatanejo, on the other hand, is a grown up Mexican Pueblo with Zócalo, has a pedestrian zone, little shops selling all sorts of things. In our opinion it's a nice mixture of tourism and Mexican way of life. You will find nice beaches in the bay of Zihuatanejo, the nicest one is called Playa La Ropa with a wide selection of hotels of each category, not as big as in Ixtapa but with a direct access to the beach for most of them. Playa La Ropa offers a wide variety of water sports. Among the daytrips offered in Zihuatanejo, you'll surely enjoy Playa Las Galetas, only reachable by taxi boat, where locals offer fresh seafood. Nightcrawlers will enjoy the bars and discotheques located downtown - nothing big, but charming and typical. We tried "Jungle" and "Los Bandidos" and liked it. Our hotel recommendation for Zihuatanejo: Hotel Villa Mexicana (4*) or for the smaller budgets Hotel Sotavento and Hotel Irma.
