All About Ixtapa Zihuatanejo
Nestled between Mexico’s Pacific Coast and the sprawling Sierra Madre mountains, Ixtapa Zihuatanejo is a city of contrasts. The city itself comprises the neighboring towns of Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo. They come together to offer picture-perfect beach resorts and authentic Mexican culture, making it an ideal spot for the indecisive traveler. Over the last 50 years, Ixtapa has experienced impressive growth, after its evolution from a quiet coconut plantation to the well-known vacation hotspot it is today. Zihuatanejo, on the other hand, retains its old world flavor with its village-like, easygoing atmosphere.
With only four miles separating the two locations, you can spend one morning lounging on Ixtapa’s white sand beaches and shuttle over for a romantic evening strolling Zihuatanejo’s brick-paved fisherman’s walk overlooking the water. After a day of fun in the sun, treat yourself to mouthwateringly fresh seafood or savor the island life by watching the sunset from a hammock among the palms.

Whether you arrive by land or by plane, Ixtapa Zihuatanejo is well connected.

Visitors arriving from neighboring cities such as Acapulco or Mexico City can also take a bus here. Although longer than a flight — roughly four hours from Acapulco and nine from Mexico City — land travel promises exquisite views you otherwise might have missed. Once you’ve arrived, regardless of which hub you’re staying in, Ixtapa Zihuatanejo has a shuttle to and from both cities operating every 20 minutes.
When is the best time to stay in a vacation rental in Ixtapa Zihuatanejo?
With clear blue skies and gentle sea breezes all year round, there is no wrong time to visit.

February brings sporting and volunteering together through the six-day SailFest. Auctions, sailboat races, cook offs, and regattas raise funds for Zihuatanejo’s local children. Regardless of when you go, keep in mind that there is no off-season and no shortage of vacation rentals in Ixtapa Zihuatanejo.
