Ixtapa
Double your Mexican Riviera pleasure in the resort playground of Ixtapa and its quaint neighbor Zihuatanejo. The region offers a profusion of fishing charters, watersports and scuba diving sites. Ixtapa boasts high-end golf courses and lighted tennis courts. Horses are available for beach rides in Playa La Ropa and Playa Linda. Sun worshippers will find beaches that are packed with activity as well as isolated tropical oases. To really get away from it all, visit the fishing settlement of Barra de Patosi.
