I post this because a saw an expired question about the situation of 'parque el limon' an ecological reserve between zihutanejo and ixtapa. He asked about the status of the park. Well the goberment had been in some troubles to put some order in there. So its kind of abandoned as a turistic experience. But still been a good place... More

Skip Ixtapa. Stay in one of the hotels along Madera Beach. Better pricing; a very quick and scenic walk into the town. Hard to beat.

The place, as advertised, is a fishing village located in a protected bay. Therefore, there may be occasional swells from the Pacific, but, usually the water is calm. There are various water sports available, such as fishing, sailing, and paddle boarding, para-sailing, rental of Kayaks, etc., and more.

This place is by far my favourite place I have visited. I just loved it here. We sat on the beach for hours drinking at a restaurant and then had an amazing dinner. The locals are so friendly and the atmosphere is just relaxing and beautiful. I stayed in Ixtapa but I would definitely rather stay here!!! Just incredible day.

This area of Mexico is absolutely gorgeous. I loved the beaches, the authentic restaurants and the real town. I'm over the "fake" resort travel and this fit the bill perfectly.

The beaches were nice and the weather was good. Lots to do in Zihua Bay, but water reports are disturbing. We chose to relax by the pool with a view of the bay.

What's not to like? Perfect weather and friendly people. Relaxing massages on the beach. Great place to vacation

Not sure if "attraction" is the appropriate catagory,,, TRANSPORTATION was our game. We got ahold of Ulises Solano to give 6 of us a ride in his Suburban from the ZIH Airport to our rental at Barra de Potasi, he picked us up (via a cabby guy who was authorized to receive at the airport) delivered us to the house...

Lucio Rodriguez (booked through Hotel Aura Del Mar) picked us up at our hotel and took us on a 2+ hour kayak paddle through mangrove tunnels into different parts of the salt water lagoon. We ended the paddle with one of the best grilled fish Mexican lunches I've ever had and a rice back to the hotel. Very reasonably priced.... More
