Nice Beach, Lots of people

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.

The market here was wonderful. It was amazing to see the crocodiles, tortugas (turtles), iguanas up close. We went via taxi with a very informative driver, Saul, who stayed with us and explained a lot about the area. We had a great time! The restaurant on the beach provided shade and cold cerveza to cap off the day. Washroom facilities... More

We took a tour from our hotel and we enjoyed it immensely. Seeing crocodiles, iguana's, turtles, and birds in their natural habitat was amazing. Would like to have spent more time at the markets. Would definitely go back.

A little more relaxed atmosphere at this location. Most of the vendors at this market are not pushy as in some other markets.

At the Playa Linda, there is a wildlife park that is worth the visit. It is full of crocodiles, iguana's and many bird species...especially the Rosie Spoon Bill. It is a great place to take kids in particular, but good for adults as well. You can catch a panga (boat) ride to Ixtapa Island from Playa Linda as well. Many... More

This was a great little place to hang out for a day. Best to go to the other side of the island- not the first stop on the sea bus- we went to Lilly's there, they helped with snorkeling and brought the most amazing drinks after!

Except for the crocodiles and iguanas in gated area, there is not much to see there. We sat at beach front Cafe to watch the scuba divers get thrashed around in the waves. After having a beer and buying 2 braclets from a roaming vendor, the slow boat ride back to the main land came not soon enough. The climb... More
