Ixtapa / Zihua in March - enough to do for 8 days?

After perusing many options and speaking with a few folks, my friend and I think it might be easiest for us to hit Ixtapa / Zihua for our trip in March. I've had a few Mexicans (and one Panamanian) express concern about us being in Guadalajara on our own, and I'm not sure we want to spend hours on the bus between either Guad/Manzanillo or Oaxaca/PE to get to the beach.

Will we get bored in Ixtapa / Zihua for 8 days? I'm not sure how much lounging around I can take! =)

Thanks
M

I'm puzzled by your Guadalajara comment. Do you mean there's not enough to do there? Or safety?

Often people fly the Oaxaca/PE stretch.

I would never get bored myself, but then again I have a extremely high threshold for doing nothing, poking around town, laying on the beach -lol.

Oh - I meant safety =)

We could fly but it adds more $ to the deal -- *sigh* Champagne taste, beer budget, you see.

Now I'm thinking that Playa Del Carmen area might be good.

I could research this forever and still go crazy figuring it out! LOL!

Well as a true lover of Zihuatanejo/Ixtapa I can not imagine being bored there. All the normal beach/water stuff plus the bars, clubs etc. Not as many as PV (TG IMO) but enough . Zihua is a great little city with wonderful cafés & shopping. A hour away is Petatlan a real gold market city with a most unusual church. Barra de potosi ^ troncones are great day trip destinations. I will spend 6 weeks there this year & wish it was longer.

Guadalajara is VERY safe, I have found. I have visited there on my own many times with my wife and we have friends that live there. Great town, lots to do and see, and don't worry about being safe!
