We did turtle releasing at playa Linda when we visited Ixtapa. The beach itself was something beautiful. It was very quiet, and we were there at sunset. You need to watch the incredible color changes! Orange, silver, pink.., It was gorgeous. There were lots of rocks to one side. It allowed for some most amazing pictures. A man with a... More

We've been there twice and have never been disappointed. Always something to see or do. The person talking to the crocks was very entertaining. There was nothing there I did not dislike.

I like this beach when you can get on it . It's very popular with the locals and if you go at Easter holidays you will see more umbrellas then the beach! There,s a small shopping market and a gator sanctuary there to visit.

From the hotel zone you can go there for 90 pesos and go across on a water taxi by yourself. Be careful of people trying to latch on to you as they work for certain vendors who want to help you then take you to their business. The snorkelling is ok and lots of good vendors to choose from.

Pleasant. Market, water rental rides and other activities. Beach busy. My daughter went hang gliding and loved the experience. The Oyster Bar and Disco are steps away.

The island was closed off to public transport today. Good ride from Zihuantanejo though. Nice looking market with affordable souvenirs.
