Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo Sights

Playa Principal

  • Beach–Sight

Updated 01/26/2015

Fodor's Review

The less-than-pristine water (water taxis and fishing boats hang out here) may keep you on the sand, but there's plenty going on. Check out the haggling over fish prices, settle into an umbrella-shaded chair with a cool drink and fresh seafood, or shop at makeshift stalls for trinkets and treasures, but save the bulk of your beach-going time for other shores. Amenities: food and drink; parking (no fee). Best for: walking; sunset.
