Ixtapa is located on the Pacific coast of Mexico, between Acapulco and Puerto Vallarta. It sits facing west on a beautiful bay, close to the Zihuatanejo town (where the locals live) and a 30-minute ride from the airport. It was developed in the ‘70s in a well-planned manner, so it is not at all big or crowded like Acapulco or Puerto Vallarta. Its atmosphere is casual, relaxed and sporty (famous triathlon happens in May) and people are nice and helpful. Tourists include families, couples and honeymooners, mostly Mexicans but gradually more Ameri- cans and Canadians are discovering this beautiful place (due to various convenient direct flights from the US)
What To Do
Besides relaxing, swimming, strolling at the beach and enjoying the most gorgeous sunsets, Ixtapa has all kinds of aquatic sports: sailing, fishing, scuba, skiing, parasailing, as well as 2 golf courses. some jungle activities and a ‘swimming with dolphins’ center.
Ixtapa has a whole range of restaurants, from casual to fine dining. Authentic Mexican food and seafood are excellent along with multiple other cuisine options like Italian, Japanese, International and French. There are a few clubs, and good options for shopping; yet Ixtapa is not overly developed or crowded.
Nearby is Zihuatanejo, where the famous Casa que Canta Hotel, restaurant and spa is located (featured in “Travel & Leisure” as one of the top boutique hotels in the world). Also, there is plenty of shopping (crafts, silver, seashells, etc) in the old part of town and along the Playa de las Gatas promenade. For excellent seafood (lunch or dinner), La Perla restaurant in Playa de la Ropa, has wooden tables on a beautiful sandy beach. Any destination in Ixtapa or Zihuatanejo can be reached by taxi (fares are fixed).

This villa has been our beach home since it was built. My mom made a lot of improvements and tasteful decorations to make more special, comfortable and beach friendly (aka, wet clothes, sand)
I have been in charge of it for the last four years and have continued to update and improve the villa, most recently I installed, new wooden blinds, new A/C and gave a thorough maintenance pass to plumbing, jacuzzi, doors and windows).
Ana Bianchi purchased this villa in 1997
I grew up enjoying this villa and Porto Ixtapa in general and now we try to visit as often as possible. It is a great place to go with the family (my toddler girl loves it) because there are several swimming pools a few yards away. I love going because Ruby, my house keeper makes me feel really pampered with how she keeps the house and with her fabulous food.
It is a safe and comfortable place to enjoy a calm vacation but is also close to a lot of restaurants in the main Ixtapa area and the admin office is also very helpful in helping book sport activities in the area.
The house itself is very beautiful and comfortable for 6.
Bright and sunny, next to the garden, next to the water.
Porto Ixtapa is full of stairs but his villa sits at garden level so it is easy access the gardens, pools, restaurant.
All the staff is gracious and helpful.
The terrace with the jacuzzi is a great place to have meals al fresco with views of the marina.
The Porto Ixtapa restaurant is walking distance and it's food is very good and fairly priced, you can open a tab for your whole stay so no money needed each time you need something. Free wifi.
This villa is a perfect vacation home: spacious, bright, comfortable, quiet yet close to fun activities.
