Ixtapa/Zihuatanejo , Mexico

Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo, one of Mexico’s most beautiful beach destinations, is located on the Pacific coast, in the state of Guerrero, 245 km (152 mi) northwest of Acapulco, off Highway 200. The climate is hot, with an average year-round temperature of 28º C (82º F). Nestled between the Sierra Madre mountains and the Pacific ocean, this destination consists of the picturesque town of Zihuatanejo, which has a traditional rural feel, and Ixtapa, a modern tourist resort with quality hotels and a marina with more than 600 slips. In Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo you can enjoy gorgeous beaches like La Ropa and Playa Linda, which have small waves, making them ideal places for windsurfing and relaxing. Nearby, you can go scuba diving along coral reefs. At this destination you also can go fishing for sailfish, which is fairly abundant in these waters. In fact, Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo hosts the Zihua-tanejo Annual International Sailfish Tournament in May.
