Ixtapa, Mexico Cruise Port

Bright blue seas surround the gorgeous beach resort of Ixtapa, one of several new developments in the 1970s which were built to make the most of Mexico's most beautiful beaches. As a result the city itself has been meticulously planned and laid out, making it the perfect place to enjoy a luxurious trip to Mexico's pristine western coast.

Sightseeing in Ixtapa

The incredible Sierra Madres create a stunning, verdant backdrop to this popular resort, and there are plenty of things to see and do if you happen to take a shore excursion in this beautiful part of the world.

Isla Ixtapa

Ixtapa Island lies just off the coast of the resort, and makes for the perfect place to swim the clear blue waters of the region – especially when it comes to snorkeling and scuba diving. Afterwards, why not head onto the soft white sands of the island's beaches, and stretch out in the sun? Take a walk around the resort areas and you'll find no shortage of places to eat or enjoy yourself, even if it's just indulging in the simple life beloved by the locals, and sipping an ice-cold beer on the beach.

Playa Blanca Wildlife

Just south of the neighbouring town of Zihuatanejo lies a beach and lagoon rich in local wildlife. The Refugio De Potosi animal refuge here could make for a fantastic destination for nature lovers; or even just walk by the Barra de Potosi lagoon for the incredible scenery, unwinding in paradise as you wander by the charming fishing boats that line the shore.

Church of Father Jesus de Petatlan

Every year Mexicans come to this beautiful white church in their thousands in the hopes of receiving a miracle, which are believed to have been performed by an image of Christ here that dates back to the 1600s. The church's unique architecture and bright stained glass also make this a popular attraction for visitors during cruise excursions, and during the Holy Week the church is packed with locals who go on to re-enact the stations of the cross nearby.

Shopping in Ixtapa

Ixtapa resort and its adjoining town of Zihuatanejo offer some fantastic shopping. Try one of the town's jewellery shops for beautiful gold and silver pieces; alternatively, you could ask them to create some custom jewellery to your own design. Elsewhere, look out for boutiques selling traditional Mexican furniture and handicrafts, and browse collections of handmade boxes, pillows, candle holders, rugs and carved decorative masks. Be on the lookout for locally made honey, vanilla and liquers too, and take some time out at a café along the way to enjoy some fresh organic coffee from local plantations.

Eating Out in Ixtapa

Such a popular resort offers no shortage of fantastic places to eat, and there are restaurants here to suit every palette –whether you're looking for traditional Mexican chili, pizza or even sushi. The resort boasts several fine-dining restaurants with fantastic views of the sea; the ideal place to relax with a delicious meal, a glass of wine and some good company while you watch the sun set over the bay.
