Getting There & Around

Puerto Vallarta International Airport is only 10 km from Ixtapa's centre. There are a number of designated buses that take travellers into the city.

Taxis are fairly cheap with most offering fixed rates for shuttling to the most popular beaches. The coastal roads are typically well maintained which makes a rental car another viable option.

General Information

One of the first purpose-built beach resort towns in Mexico, Ixtapa still has a lot to offer for those in search of a sunny escape from the hectic pace of everyday life. On the coast of the Pacific Ocean in the state of Guerrero, Ixtapa is a popular alternative for regular visitors to Acapulco, some 240 km to the south. From a climate, layout, hotel and attractions standpoint, the two resort towns have a lot in common.

Most visitors to Ixtapa will want to restrict their time to the beach of course. There are many to discover, with Playa Blanca, Playa Larga and Playa Quieta among the best. Other points of interest in Ixtapa include the Costa Grande Archaeological Museum, Aztlan Ecological Park and Zihuatanejo Crafts Market. For recreation enthusiasts, water sports abound up and down the coastline and the immediate area around Ixtapa offers up a slew of excellent golf courses.
