I have visited several places in Mexico including Cabo, Puerto Vallarta, Cancun and Alcapulco. I was in Ixtapa, Zihua for the first time in December for the first time and had the best time of all my travels to Mexico. I read this board and feel that some people traveling to this area do not do enough research to really know the area before arriving. Then they come on this board and have negative comments or bad experiences. Ixtapa, Zihua is not Cancun or any thing like it. The resorts are probabaly not up to your expectations--- if our are a 5 star and 6 star person expecting only the finest and demanding it then stay away....If you are truely looking for a true Mexican experience with the friendliest people that I have ever met with not all the glitz and glamor(leave your finest at home) then you will have a great time.... It is a wonderful place and I cannot wait to return..
