just got back from spending 7 days at ixtapa! We flew through Alaska from San Francisco, stopped at L.A and arriving at Zih. we found out that they left our luggage in L.A!! This happened to several people on our flight and apparently it happens pretty often from Alaska Air, so BEWARE!!!
We arrived on Sunday and got our luggage til Tuesday night all torn.
Stayed at the Barcelo, LOVED IT!!!!
great hotel, service, rooms, pool, everything!!!
Went snorkeling to Ixtapa Island, very nice!
Also went horseback riding, a must to do, however be prepared and bring a towel to sit on, unless you want to wake up soar and with bruises.
Went to Villa De la selva and El Faro for dinner, beautiful views and great food!!!
p.s note that for taxi rides in ixtapa- 20pesos one way and to Zih. 40pesos one way also or they will rip you off.
Fiesta Mexicana on Tuesdays at the Riviera (i think that's the hotel?) a must!!
We went to Acapulco by bus for two days definately not worth it. The only good thing are the clubs but besides that Ixtapa is definately better, not to mention cleaner!!!
In Ixtapa we went out to Christine, not worth it, well we also went on a weekdays so maybe it might be diffrent on the weekend.
Senor Frogs is the place to go!
Carlos N' Charlies have great food and a little dance stage, however there was noone there but again might have been cuz we went on a weekday.
Must have Coco Locos which have in them 5 different types of liquor!!
Overall we had a great time and can't wait to return to ixtapa and the barcelo!!!!
