With 300 days of sunshine each year this area is a favourite choice for golfing, fishing, sunning and outdoor sports. Snorkel, scuba, golf, or go horseback riding along the beach, parasail, or just relax under a palm tree in this unspoiled paradise.

Ixtapa is an approximately 3 mile stretch of beach-front development where modern high rise hotels are strategically placed, one right next to the other (careful spacing ensures one does not cast a shadow on the other's pool), with free form pools and beautifully landscaped gardens. In addition, two world class golf courses, a new Marina, a commercial shopping center, numerous restaurants and smaller shops all make up this pristine resort.

The beaches are of brown sand with deep blue water, and the Sierra Madre mountains covered with the lush tropical vegetation of the region serve as a backdrop to great resort. Ixtapa beaches are wide, but tend to be a bit too rough for ocean swimming. They are, however, well tended and manicured, offering palapas and chaise loungess.

As a final note, on all beaches in Ixtapa or Zihuatanejo you will find an absence of beach vendors. The state of Guerrero has prohibited beach vendors from the beach however it has provided them with tourist markets where they may sell there goods.
