Ixtapa, one of the most beautiful beach destinations in Mexico, is located in the Pacific coast state of Guerrero on what is known as the Mexican Riviera. Meaning white place in Nihuatl, the resort town of Ixtapa was founded in 1972 by FONATUR (the National Fund for Tourism Development).

As one of the countries most exciting vacations spots, Ixtapa features a number of first-class resorts, golf courses, restaurants, and of course, incredible beaches. Keeping in line with the original mission of FONATUR which is to maintain half of the property free from commercialism, the hotels of Ixtapa are all centrally located on a two-mile stretch of beach, making them convenient to virtually everywhere.

Among the many attractions, some of the more popular activities include scuba diving, surfing, and deep sea fishing for sailfish, marlin and yellow-knife tuna. Ixtapa hosts a popular annual winter offshore tournament, held at the Port of Zhihuatanejo.

Golf is also a top recreational activity for visitors to Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo.

One secret that these beaches have to offer during winter months is the great whale-watching during their annual migration.
