The twin resorts of Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo are located on the Pacific Coast of Mexico 144 miles northwest of Acapulco along the coast known as La Costa Grande.

Ixtapa is a government-planned resort of high-rise hotels, designer shops, gourmet restaurants, golf courses, and popular nightclubs. Planned at the same time as Cancun, it never has reached the same popularity.

Zihuatanejo is a thriving community that has grown from a fishing village. It is composed of a natural bay surrounded by several beaches. Zihuatanejo has a more authentic Mexican flavor and a large selection of inexpensive restaurants.

The two towns, just four miles apart, make the perfect combination for enjoying the best of both worlds while on vacation.

Lodging Options:
Capella Ixtapa: Experience the beauty of Mexico at Capella Ixtapa, a luxury resort perched inside a rock cliff overlooking the Pacific Ocean. This Ixtapa Zihuatanejo hotel features luxurious suites, private pools, a spa, restaurants, tequila bar, and more. See more at www.capellaixtapa.com
