Where is there a place in Ixtapa along all the hotels to get to the beach without going thru a hotel?

There are two places. Right next to the Barcelo Hotel. The other is on the other end of town. Go into the street for the Posada Real Hotel and the Dolphin place and the Carlos and Charlies entrance. Be sure to stop at Baltazars' Coconut stand and have a fresh coconut! Awesome!

There is a third access point by the marina, next to the new Peninsula project

So Carlos & Charles is still there. I thought they closed. Loved that place about 30 years ago. Remember being there one night when the power went off and we ordered, ate and payed by candle and flash lite. Thanks to all for the info!

I think Carlos skipped town a few years ago. It is just called Charley's now. No longer a kiddie hot spot, but you can rent a table, chairs and umbrella there. They serve food and beverages, but I've never eaten there so can't comment on quality.

Another access is beside the dolphinarium where the rock and arena / sand beach bar is.

That's the old Carlos & Charleys referred to above.

I'd still like to see a flotilla of folks land en masse on the "private beach" at Las Brisas to test the "all beaches in Mexico are public" theory, if only to see how fast it takes the security guards to remove them.
