Description

Golfing with alligators? Swimming with dolphins? Lounge with sea turtles? No, we're not just describing a crazy dream we had last night. It's a reality in one of Mexico's premier resort towns-Ixtapa. While the green mountains, crystal blue ocean water, and sprawling white sand beaches have enticed tourists for years, Ixtapa is so much more than just a pretty face. Explorable caves and secluded areas for snorkeling and diving make this beach vacation a little something different. Ixtapa is a great destination for families with its calm beaches and family-friendly resorts. Those looking for a slightly wilder Mexican beach experience will appreciate that the city truly comes to life once the sun goes down and the bars and clubs open their doors. Ixtapa is home to a number of all-inclusive resorts which can take the guesswork out of vacationing. But the food around town is drool-worthy, as well. One thing is for sure, you'll regret going home without tasting some of the freshly caught seafood that this seaside town has to offer.
