Ixtapa Vacations

Ixtapa is best known for its excellent white sand beaches, and offers nice opportunities for relaxing beach vacations. The center of the Ixtapa resort town is the lovely Playa del Palmar beach, where most of the large hotels in the area are located. Water sports such as sailing, parasailing and water skiing are available in Ixtapa. However, as in many of the beaches in the area, the waves are a bit rough for swimming. However, the high waves make surfing in Ixtapa quite popular. Playa Las Gatas is nice for swimming, and snorkeling can also be practiced there. Offshore from Ixtapa, Isla Ixtapa is home to four more beaches that offer nice snorkeling as well as seafood restaurants.

Besides beaches and surfing, diving in Ixtapa is also great with good visibility, rich marine life and a variety of impressive dive sites. Sport fishing and kayaking are also available. There is a dolphinarium in Ixtapa where you can swim with bottlenose dolphins, and a water park called the Magic World that is great fun for kids.

Nightlife in Ixtapa is not as impressive as in bigger resort cities such as Acapulco or Cancún. Ixtapa has more options for night-time entertainment, then its twin city Zihuatanejo. Typical Mexican festivals are also celebrated. Ixtapa is safe with little crime around. However, pick-pocketing and theft does occur, so take good care of your belongings.  To learn more about all the beautiful beaches of the Mexican Riviera, visit here.  Now view our Ixtapa Vacations Travel Guide to help plan your next Mexican Riviera vacation!

    Count me in on this Ixtapa location!   Traveling to such an wonderful destination sounds amazing to me.  I have been searching for my next beach vacation, and I think I just found it.  I just need to not look anymore on your site, LOL.  Do you also work as a travel agent?  Can you get me the best deals on a hotel/air package?  Thanks!

    Wow, great review of Ixtapa. So comprehensive!

    I never heard of this place before. But I love visiting these type of places. Some of the bigger places like Cancun can get very crowded and commercialized. It’s great sometimes to visit the smaller lesser known locations. It can be much quieter yet you can still do most everything. Especially for things like snorkeling and scuba diving, these places can be much better locations to visit.

    Great review of Ixtapa; you definitely got everything covered and you have given me all the reasons I need to want to visit this place.

    I love beaches and it’s one of my dreams to visit more places and more beaches to expand my horizon and experience. I’ve seen quite a lot in Asia and it would be nice to go somewhere I’ve never been before like Mexico.

    What I am most excited about is riding a dolphin and taking an adventure walk in the wilds. I always enjoyed watching a dolphin show but haven’t experienced actually riding on their belly, that must be fun.

    By the way, do you know if there are travel agencies that are offering package tours or special discounts and what season of the year do they usually offer them?

      Hi Alysanna, I am glad you enjoyed my Ixtapa post. You will be able to get a package deal or discount pretty much any time, if you are planning ahead. Usually, the discounts are going to come during off season, which of course is not always the ideal time to travel to Ixtapa due to the weather. I can help you with putting together something, and I know that I can get you a great price. I will send you an email 🙂

    I like the thought of going there and being able to snorkel and swim and learn to surf and enjoy all the activities. This is kind of what I am looking for! Yes, you have so many wonderful places that you have reviews for. I am going to look around some more and decide on my next vacation. Thank you!

    Beautiful place and wow the night life sounds fun. I totally agree winter is the best time to travel as the weather is pleasant. I think I need to explore Ixtapa as well. I went to Cancun and it was so much fun, I wanted to go again this year in June, but I cancelled it as I heard June it gets pretty humid due to rain. Looks like Ixtapa is the place I will go to instead 🙂 Thank you for sharing.

    Best Regards

    We are hoping to go sometime this winter when it is very cold here and wonderful in Ixtapa, will there plenty of sailing around there? I have always wanted to try sailing but never took time out to do it. Is there places that would take an old man out and show him how to sail? When do most people travel to this place? Thanks for showing us some very beautiful places in the world.

    1. Leahrae (Post author)

      Hi Bob, you are going to be able to sail anytime while you are there. I have a company listed on the article for Picante, a sailing company, and they can take you out and also teach you how. November thru may is the high season for Ixtapa, when most people vacation in Ixtapa. It is still not overly crowded like some other beach destinations. The weather is not extremely hot, it is nice and dry and sunny, and you will have a fantastic time!

    Wow, great information on Ixtapa! I have been wanting to go to the Mexican Riviera and have been looking over the various destinations in this area. I think that Ixtapa sounds like the place for us to vacation to. We both are surfers, so this will be ideal with the water being a little rougher made for surfing 🙂 I also like that the weather really doesn’t go over 90 degrees. I am quite interested in going to Isla Ixtapa while we are there. Do you know how much is cost for a boat ride over to the island? Thank you!

    Reply
    1. Leahrae (Post author)

      If you like surfing, then you will love Ixtapa. It is definitely more for surfing than it is swimming with the rough waters. The cost for a boat ride to Isla Ixtapa is going to be about $2.50 each way. They also have a variety of guided tours and snorkeling tours. I can’t quote the prices as it really varies depending on what type of tour you get. Thanks for visiting BeachTravelDestinations.com

    Very comprehensive review Leahrae. I am in Australia, so planning a trip to mexico seems daunting. But, they are two very different cultures, food, etc., so I am kind of excited. Had Cabo in my mind, but after visiting this Ixtapa page, I have decided this might be a better choice for us. We are spoiled here in Australia with our beautiful beaches here on the gold coast. But…..There is something about the Mexican music and Mexican lifestyle I don’t think we could ever replicate here in Australia. So it will be a lot of fun to plan my trip to Ixtapa and check out the Mexican culture and food. Thank you so much for all this wonderful information!

      Thank you so much Remy! Yes, Australia is a wonderful place for sure, and then so is Mexico.

    Ixtapa sounds amazing Leahrae! I love to sail so sound like I’ll get along there just fine. When you say the winter months do you mean northern hemisphere winter? So December to February? I’m from Australia so just to clarify however I think I’ll avoid during hurricane season, just to be on the safe side! Am adding to the bucket list!

      Hi Fleur, Thank you so much for visiting BeachTravelDestinations.com and reading about Ixtapa Vacations. Yes, I do mean winter months as in December thru February 🙂 I think that the winter months are the best time to go really. I live in the hurricane belt, so yes I am not going anywhere else during that time that is also in the hurricane belt. I think this year though, has been exceptionally bad. Thank you for taking the time to comment.

    How! Wonderful does that look? I would love to visit there for about 9 months out of the year.
    Are these places that are kid friendly? Lots of things for a family to do. When we go on vacation, my wife and I always take along all the kids. Do children travel cheaper than adults?
    This may be a place we go when the kids are gone. That would be cheaper.

    Who would be the person to contact in order to plan a trip?
    Thanks for the very beautiful site.

      Hi Bob, yes Acapulco is kid friendly and I do believe one of my hotel recommendations is very family friendly. There are more that are as well. Between the beaches, the sea life, the wild life, and the dolphins, kids have a ball here! The only extra expense with your kids is going to be for the food and airline tickets mostly. I have always taken my kids with me, and it has created for them, a love to travel and to go to the beach…just like their mom 🙂 So don’t wait till they are gone. Enjoy life with them. I find that this time, for me, is great quality time that we spend together.

    Wow, I wish I could head there right now! Very complete presentation–if I were able to go now, I would have a great idea of where to go and what to see. I especially wish I could do the bike train–that’s kind of my thing. I don’t surf, but snorkeling would sure be fun.
