Just got back from a fantastic week in Ixtapa. The weather was great after leaving snow in St Louis.The quiet times on the beach and in this area makes it an ideal place for Rest and Relaxation.

The food was very good in all the places where we ate. The view of Ixtapa from El Faro was beautiful at sunset. Our trip to Zihautanejo was enjoyable with a very inexpensive meal at Rossy's on La Ropa beach, a place I would recommend to anyone to try. Also, a shopping trip to Commercial Mexicanna in Zih. reminds us of shopping in a Walmart that also has some great pastries.

This message board is an asset to anyone going to this area for all the preliminary information a person can receive and be informed before going to Ixtapa and Zihautanejo from people who have already experienced the joys of paradise in Mexico. We are already planning for our next trip.

Our Hotel was Las Brisas and was our third time to stay there. We will definitely plan to return to that hotel. Their beach is very private and not congested with people. Swimming may not be as good as other areas, but their four pools and the beautiful beach are enough for us. The food at Las Brisas was good, but slightly higher than in Downtown Ixtapa and if you include the taxi fare to town and back, it is not that much higher. We did eat most of our meals away from the hotel.

Special thanks to our new friend, Phil for all his info and to Zihu@Rob's message board for our advanced information.
