    You may think in Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo as the twin paradises, both towns are just a short drive from one another. This double destination has 16 miles of coast and satisfies totally different needs, from authenticity-seeking adventurers to languorous sun worshippers. Among the things this destination has to offer are: stunning white-sand beaches, crystal clear waters for all kind of water sports, luxury hotels, placid bays, and the taste of small-town Mexican life.

    Ixtapa is one of Mexico’s most compact planned resorts created in the 1970s, with a hotel strip along the Playa del Palmar, a two- mle long stretch of beautiful white sand. Here you will find world-class resorts equipped with enough restaurants, pools, and activities to keep families occupied for weeks. There is also a pair of golf courses and a modern marina with slips for 600 vessels and upscale seafood restaurants. Ixtapa also offers shopping malls, excellent boutiques, jewelry stores, handicraft shops and a nautical atmosphere.

    On the other hand, Zihuatanejo is a fishing village in a lovely bay that offers visitors the opportunity to see the more traditional side of Mexico. The original name was Cihuatlán which means “land of women” in nahuatl, because the social organization was a matriarchy. This place was a sacred sanctuary for the prehispanic nobility, and there are vestiges of very old civilizations as the Olmecs who lived 3000 B.C. The quaint and pleasant village features single-story white houses and

    cobblestone streets lined with nightspots, shops, hotes, and restaurants that run the gamut from casual to ultraluxurious. This nice environment combine with the traditions and charm of local people, is always an invitation to get around the town. Visitors have the option to stay in one of the inviting little hotels in the center of town, or in one of the small luxury hotels nestled along its lovely beaches.

    More than 150 restaurants offer plenty of delicious choices, but Zihuatanejo is the best place to try regional fish specialties like “Tiritas”, made of thin fish strips marinated in lemon with red onions and sliced hot peppers, the regional favorite, the “pescadillas”, “ceviche”, fish and shrimp tacos, and “pescado a la talla”.

    The average temperature is 82˚ F and sunshine 300 days a year. Even during the June-September rainy season showers are brief and usually in the late afternoon or evening.

    Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo is just three-hour drive from Acapulco and 40-minute flight from México City. The superhighway Century XXI that connects Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo with Morelia, Michoacán, conveniently facilitates quick access by car: from Mexico City in 6 hours, from Toluca, Querétaro and León in 5 hours, and from Morelia in only 3 and a half to 4 hours.
