Week after Easter-Booking Activities

We are headed down the week after Easter(30th-6th), staying in Ixtapa. Should we be booking our excursions now(snorkeling, dolphins, fishing etc), assuming it will be relatively busy in Ixtapa/Zihuat that week? I would rather wait to pick until we get out there, get a feel for the guide place before we go, but I don't want everything to be full. Thanks!

You don't really need to "book" any excursions, just go and do what you want. You can take buses or taxis to areas with water taxis for snorkeling (Isla Ixtapa or Las Gatas in Zihua). I believe there is a list of captains you might want to look at for fishing. . . contacting one of them in advance may be a good idea. Don't book someone who approaches you on the beach! The only thing we ever booked through our hotel on our first trip was the snorkeling trip on the Picante. Most of the "excursions" will be way over priced for the few peso's it takes to ride a bus or take a taxi where you want to go.

PS The dolphin experience in Ixtapa is a bit controversial due to conditions there. But many people like it.
