Ixtapa . . warm, relaxing, and beautiful, a sheltered port with sparkling bay and jutting cliffs.

Located on picturesque Ralmar Bay, Ixtapa is one of the newest resort destinations in Mexico. Only a few miles from the renowned, charming fishing village of Zihuatanejo, Ixtapa is in a world of its own with miles of unspoiled beaches, warm surf, lush tropical vegetation, and the blue Pacific as far as you can see.

The master-planned resort features fine hotels all facing the bay, with a backdrop of the majestic Sierra Madre mountains. Here, you can lose your-self in the relaxed setting on the white sand beaches or you can venture out to explore your new and exciting surroundings.

If you want activity, Ixtapa has it all. You'll find water-skiing, parasailing, snorkeling, scuba diving, sailing, windsurfing, surfing, swimming, fishing, horseback riding, golf, and tennis. Rent a moped or scooter and see the sights or take a boat ride to nearby Isla Ixtapa, a small island national park, where you can enjoy open-air restaurants and calm waters for swimming.

In Ixtapa, you have some choices to make. There are quaint shops displaying local arts and crafts or modern shopping centers. Small eateries or gourmet restaurants. High-tech discos and quiet beaches. And, then, there are the incredible sunsets. Whatever you choose to do, you will long remember this lovely part of Mexico.
