You'll get a double shot of Mexico when you visit the Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo area in the south of Mexico. Here, resort living is paired with an authentic Mexican urban experience and a small-town feel in the state of Guerrero.

Taken as one urban area, Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo forms one of the largest cities in the state. But it is really a twin destination providing you with the best of both worlds and they are separated only by a 15-minute taxi ride.

For the one-stop conveniences of resort living and beautiful beaches, set your sights on Ixtapa. To immerse yourself in local culture and the ambience of a fishing village with developing urban flavours, try Zihuatanejo. Or, for an all-round holiday offering plenty of water and land activities, along with a glimpse into the region's culture and past, visit both.

Ixtapa is an oceanfront stretch of paradise with year-round warm waters and a wide variety of resorts, including all-inclusive accommodations. There is a marina and yacht club with a promenade. Many tourists come here to enjoy the long stretches of beaches in front of the hotels. There is also a popular cycling path.

Zihuatanejo has grown from a humble fishing village of a few hundred residents to a thriving town with restaurants, art, entertainment and a beautiful protected bay. During the day, you'll see fishermen spread out their fresh-caught fish to sell at the waterfront. At night on the weekends, entertainment lights up the downtown plaza and basketball court area, where many cultural activities are held.

Thanks to a downtown beautification program in Zihuatanejo, you'll find plenty of pedestrian walkways winding past adobe storefronts and clay-tiled roofs. You can wander safely in town day or night amidst the friendly locals.

Ixtapa is a fantastic destination for:

  • beach
  • outdoor adventure
  • snorkeling and diving
