Ixtapa Overview

Located on the Pacific ocean in the Mexican state of Guerrero, Ixtapa is a planned beach resort that is promoted all over the web in conjunction with its sister town Zihuatanejo. They are both located in the same municipality or section of the state but Ixtapa is actually 5km away from Zihuatanejo.

Ixtapa itself lies on a huge bay called Bahia del Palmar. It is a huge bay of beautiful blue and a wide beach. This is that destination you needed that has everything you could think of for an all-inclusive vacation. High end resorts and package deals abound. Golf courses, local islands, bars, discos, dolphin swimming, zip-lining, rafting, hiking, bird watching many of the 320 species that live and or migrate here. This is a mainstream honeymooning or family destination. The mountains behind the beach frame the area wonderfully and there really is something for everyone here including fishing and surfing.
