Top Reasons to Go to Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo
Snorkeling, surfing, and kayaking: Zihuatanejo Bay is all about water sports. And the warm Pacific is as appealing to orcas, humpback whales, and dolphins as it is to humans.
Authentic charm: The beaches around Zihuatenejo are a great place to experience what's left of Mexico's timeless local rhythm. Fishermen still set off in outboard-motorized skiffs and return a few hours later to sell their catch right there on the beach.
