Any information on the best places to buy tapestries in the Ixtapa/Zihua area would be greatly appreciated.

Tapetes, fine quality carpets. tablecloths, cushions etc, are available at a shop called "Zapoteca" just "north" of the basketball court (towards the pier) almost opposite Porto di Mare restaurant and beside Casa Marine restaurant.

Most of their stock comes from Teotitlan del Valle, near Oaxaca, but we have seen a weaver working there.

I'll second La Zapoteca. They carry wonderful Zapotec indian weaving in addition to some nice hammocks. Fluent English speaking staff.
