Ixtapa amounts to a choice 2-1/2 mile stretch of sand, Playa del Palmar, four miles north of the village. Only 50 years ago the Ixtapa area was a coconut and mango plantation. Now the site boasts deluxe hotels, where the fly-in traveler can luxuriate in the average 78 degree warmth, year-round sun (except in the July-September rainy season), and first-class facilities. Ixtapa offers the resources to lure wind-chilled Americans to a sunny destination resort.
Without the village of Zihuatanejo, Ixtapa, a tropical paradise, would be placeless, both on the edge of the sea and at sea. If you take away the Mexican Spanish language and a few other trappings, Ixtapa could be in Hawaii. To some travelers, in search of a sunny, seaside paradise, location is of no consequence. However, the village of Zihuatanejo reminds and delights a visitor that Ixtapa is in Mexico.
If you jet into the Ixtapa/Zihuatanejo Airport, your Mexican vacation can combine two appealing worlds--the luxurious and accessible high-rise resorts of Ixtapa and the rustic, authentic fishing village of Zihuatanejo, which gives Mexican soul to this tropical paradise.
