Zihuatanejo, a small laid-back fishing village on Mexico’s Costa Grande, is known for its spectacular Pacific beaches, abundant seafood, boating, sport fishing and sea turtle conservation efforts.
Only 50 minutes by air from both Mexico City and San Miguel de Allende, Zihuatanejo/Ixtapa is an ideal weekend coastal getaway, especially in the high season of November through April. The small airport services both Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo. From the US and Canada, a stop in Mexico City or Queretero is required.
Ixtapa is Zihuatanejo’s neighbor, four miles down the road. Ixtapa is a developed luxury resort with high rise condominiums and beautifully lush gated communities that boast spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean.
