Ixtapa Zihuatanejo and Acapulco are always competing to be the favorite vacation spot for Mexicans’ in Guerrero.
They share some of the best reasons to visit: warm waves and year-long great weather. Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo are two towns that have been growing together for so long that are considered just one destination; however, Ixtapa is more focused on resorts and Zihuatanejo has a more bohemian vibe.
The large coastline is perfect to take a long walk along and admire the sunset and soft sand while enjoying a coconut — since it used to be a coconut plantation.
For a relaxing day, Las Gatas Beach is one of the most peaceful ones with crystal clear water, which makes it a favorite place to go snorkeling.
And for those looking to explore someplace new, a water taxi from Playa Linda can take you to Ixtapa Island. After a 10-minute boat ride, you get to a green and golden island with four beautiful beaches.
Carey is the only one of them that doesn’t have restaurants, so here nature is the protagonist. On the other three, you can find rustic restaurants on the beach that bring in fresh fish and seafood daily so you can enjoy incredibly fresh local dishes.
