Ixtapa is a planned tourist destination conceived in the 1970s and constructed soon thereafter. Its land was once a mangrove estuary and coconut plantation. Its beautiful setting is in the rolling mountains overlooking the Pacific Ocean near Zihuatanejo, in the state of Guerrero. As part of Mexico’s Riviera, some of the most popular activities in Ixtapa include golf, watersports, or charter fishing and of course, simply laying in the sun and relaxing.
