Ixtapa was created for tourism so there is only a small shopping area with restaurants and tourist shops to support the shoreline of large resort properties. A 10 peso bus ride to Zihuatanejo takes you to a beautiful clean town.

It was originally a small fishing village that now thrives on the tourist trade but it does it with character. There is a large local population so all the stores to support them are there and people are really friendly.
The streets are quite narrow with veranda-like structures covering the sidewalks creating a much cooler breezeway for walking.
The beach and anchorage are inviting, although because we are so close to summer, the crowds are gone.

|Copenhagen, Vancouver and Zihuatanejo, she is every where!|

We really enjoyed it.
