“Awesome scenery and felt very safe.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2011

We took as a family group what they call the city tour which included Ixtapa and Zihautanao. With this package our guide Antonio Flores took us up hillsides, that gave us spectacular views of both locations. The bay of Zih. is unreal, with views of many majestic homes, villa's and expensive get away inns, including Steven Spielbergs newly built vacation home.
If you can book a day of fishing do so you won't be disappointed, we had a fantastic day of fishing hooking a total of 9 fish including Mahi Mahi, Tuna and Sailfish including a 110lb sailfish! All on board the Duquesa II sportfishing boat captained by Jaun and his 2 mates.

“The Blue Shrimp Ixtapa-casual dining, amazing fresh food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2011

The Blue Shrimp is located in the market area of Ixtapa, very close to Ruben's Burger restaurant.
My husband and I went to the Blue Shrimp March 8, 2011. This is a small open air restaurant in the shopping area of Ixtapa. We were seated outside at a very cute table for 2. The waiter spoke very good english and recommended a few things for us. For an appetizer my husband ordered the Oysters Rockofeller (half order) and I ordered the shrimp coctail. The oysters were amazing. The shrimp coctail was very nice, with small shrimps in a house coctail sauce. For our main course, my husband ordered the house special Blue Shrimp Seafood Pot, with had a variety of fresh seafood in a wonderful cream sauce. I ordered the Shrimp Lola, which was prepared at our table. This was 6 very large shrimp in a mushroom wine and pernod sauce. Absolutely outstanding. We each had a drink and glass of very good cabernet sauvignon followed by a spanish coffee prepared at our table. The total bill including tip was $75!!! An amazing value and excellent meal. I highly recommend this restaurant for casual dining with gourmet food.
