Ixtapa Feb 9-23 - stayed at Posada Real (non-inclusive), rooms were small but very nicely decorated, very clean, and great maid service. Hotel staff very friendly, especially at Happy hour in the bar! Infinity pool, VERY impressive.
Some good restaurants - in Zihua, when you're feeling poor, Pollo Loco (39 pesos for a 1/4 bbq chicken dinner)! In Ixtapa, Chipotles (40 pesos cheeseburger, fries and 1 beer). Also in Ixtapa, great Mahi-Mahi at Chile Y Tequila. For great Shrimp Fajitas, try Margaritas.

Went to the Pozoleria Santa Prisca both Thursdays, great food, but go later in the day, there is entertainment. Not too many Gringo's in there!

Caught a local bus to Petatlan (24 pesos return - and what a ride!) Spent about 3 hours there looking around and bought some very good priced gold jewellery.

Also went to Las Gatas twice (PLEASE DON'T SPEND $35 U.S. TO TAKE THE TOUR!!!) For 2 with bus to zihua, boat, good fish lunch at Otilios, and many cervezas, it worked out to a total of $34.00 U.S. (Less than half, considering with the tour you get only 1 cerveza). Be adventurous!

A good place to go for late drinks in Ixtapa is Kopado's Bar (looks like a treetop). Good place to people-watch.

This was our second trip to Ixtapa, but definately not our last!!!
