Zihuatanejo Honeymoons, Ixtapa Honeymoons : Our Specialty
Are you looking to experience authentic Mexico ? do you want to avoid the crowds of Cancun and Cabo? Zihuatanejo has the most romantic hideaways in Mexico. One of our favorites is Casa Que Canta- perched on top of a cliff this hideaway is the ultimate romantic escape. We have personally traveled here to tell you more about it and why it makes such an Idylic Honeymoon and romance spot. Next to Zihuatanejo is Ixtapa- a more touristy area with all inclusives... but we recommend Zihuatanejo, its proteced bay and picture perfect beaches are just perfect.
Zihuatanejo & Ixtapa, on the "Mexican Riviera" are considered two resorts in one. Located in the northwestern part of the state of Guerrero, 150 miles up the coast from Acapulco via coastal Highway 200. Unlike any other Mexican beach resort destination, it comprises two entirely different places with distinct lifestyles, Zihuatanejo and Ixtapa, only 7 kilometers (4.3 miles) apart.
The beaches of Ixtapa's hotel zone
At one end of Ixtapa, as you enter on the way from Zihuatanejo, is the 18-hole Ixtapa Golf Club. At the other end, the Marina Ixtapa development includes a 600-slip yacht marina, a nautical-ambience promenade with restaurants and shops, and the new 18-hole Marina Golf Course.
Zihuatanejo: Andy's destination in Shawshank Redemption
around the corner, and down the coast (southeast) from Ixtapa is an old fishing town on a picturesque sheltered bay that is only 1.6 miles wide. Its one of our favorite spots in Mexico to send honeymoons and lovers. Its old Mexico, not tourisy and free from hurricanes.
The temperature averages 79 degrees Fahrenheit, with summer highs in the low 90s and winter highs in the upper 80s. During the rainy season, June through September, showers are usually brief and generally at night, so the sun shines practically every day.
Toward the end of the rainy season, the countryside and the mountainous backdrop of the Sierra Madre del Sur turn brilliantly green with multicolored blossoms of trees and flowers. A few months after the rainy season, vegetation turns gradually brown until the rainy season begins again.
For those wishing to venture outside these two spectacularly beautiful resorts, small fishing villages such as Troncones and Barra de Potosi make wonderful day trips.
Dining in Zihuatanjejo / Ixtapa
Many of the hotels in Ixtapa offer Mexican Fiesta nights with special buffets, entertainment such as folk dancing, singing and games. These events usually are held during the weekday evenings. Regardless of where you eat, tipping is the same as in most countries, between 10% and 15%, depending on service.
