Again, perhaps it was because it was the slow/rainy season, but everyone was very pushy... trying to sell fishing trips and everything else. It was pretty, but I became tired or the aggresive sales pitches at every corner.

Cielo Zapoteco has an amazing selection of beautiful wool rugs, table clothes and table runners. Martin Cruz works the loom in the store and he is delightful. His English is very good. He taught himself English by reading books. If you have some spare paperbacks, he would be delighted to have them. The prices are very reasonable for the excellent... More

I know the media, and all the travel advisories are out there, but we have been here for two weeks, no problem. Just like P. V., smaller and way more clean great food, and bars!

Plenty to do here for a week's stay. It has been safe for my last three visits over four years with family for ages between 2 and 68 and entertaining for all. Don't believe the negative hype in the news for any others travelling from California. I haven't ever seen any sign of trouble in this region and the people... More

We just returned from a wonderful day at Ixtapa Island with Captain Moses and his son Israel. He took my wife and I and our four friends in his boat Goyita to the island for a little snorkeling. On the way, he threw out a couple lines and let us pull in three tuna, which when we got to the... More

Nice place to have long walks, very safe. Also scuba-diving is fantastic. Watch out the sun :D I loved the piñacolada served in the pinaple on the beach. Also , not too heavy with turism.

Much quieter than Ixtapa but within easy driving distance. wonderful views, food and accommodations. Not as busy as Ixtapa but a quaint village that we enjoyed. If I had small children I would opt for Ixtapa (or if you want major shopping) but if you want peace and quiet this is your place.
