Things To Do In Zihuatanejo-Ixtapa


Admired for our "laid-back atmosphere and polished rooms" by Travel + Leisure magazine, our Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo resort is ideally located just outside the picturesque fishing village of Zihuatanejo, along one of the most sought-after beaches on Mexico’s Pacific Coast.

The white sands of our thousand-foot private beach on Playa La Ropa bring gorgeous contrast to the azure waters of Zihuatanejo Bay and lush flora embracing out terracotta-tiled villas. Our enchanting park-like grounds feature over 30 varieties of plants and 19 different species of birds — all native to the area. 

Just off the beach dotted with palm-thatched palapa cabanas and teak lounge chairs, you’ll find three swimming pools — including a fantastic infinity pool poised at water's edge, seeming to flow directly into the sea.

Our intimate spa features six treatment rooms and a skilled team of therapists for massage, facials and body treatments team.

Evening bonfires on the beach light up twice a week, as our warm sands transform into an exclusive lounge we call Sentido de la Noche, or "Sense of the Night."

And if relaxing in such epic fashion grows too taxing, the coast is overflowing with Zihuatanejo activities to fill your days with unforgettable experiences.

Following in the wake of Ernest Hemingway and Zane Grey, you’ll find some of the world’s best sport fishing right here, with sailfish, marlin, yellow fin tuna, dorado (mahi-mahi), wahoo, bonito and barracuda top the short list.

Speaking of short games, you can practice your strokes at our putting green, and then tee off at one of two nearby 18-hole golf courses. 

Two lighted tennis courts, tennis lessons with our pro and an air-conditioned fitness center complete the experience.

You’ll not only bring home Spanish names for exotic herbs and spices, you’ll also gain new skills and an authentic sense of the local culture.
