“a great day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2014

Fun snorkeling. We also had massages, which were more relaxing than therapeutic. Enjoyed our beachside lunch.

“IXTAPA ISLAND”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2014

Charlie on the Club Med beach(wearing the Eagles jersey) took care of us! Look for him.
He took us on boat ride, fishing, dolphin/sea turle viewing, snorkling and jetskiing.

“Perfect!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2014

Have been to Mexico many, many times...yet this was first time to Ixtapa/Zihua...fabulous! Sunsets (and I've seen so many good ones) were spectacular! We stayed at Sunscape Dorado Pacifica...great restaurants, great outdoor areas, great service. Huge waves, which I love. Went to Isla Ixtapa one day for snorkeling/massages ($20 for an hour!). Another day at Las Gatas for same thing. Had lobster there (not much meat, skip it). Any of the little places on either beach would be fine. Getting there by taxi ($7) then water taxi (4$ round trip) is simple and easy. I would definitely go again in a heartbeat and would recommend the hotel as well.

“Nice day trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2014

Nice way to break up your stay...visit the island for snorkelling bring your own or rent from the vendors. The fish will not be hard to find.
