Cancun is usually the go-to place for travelers when they want to visit a beach in Mexico, but it is far from being the only area there that allows people to have fun and enjoy the sun, sand, and surf. Enter Ixtapa. Located beside the city of Zihuatanejo in Guerrero, Mexico, it is a resort destination that draws in local and foreign tourists yearly because of its beautiful beaches. Visitors have different options to choose from. For instance, Playa Principal is a favorite because its waters are good for swimming and it has several restaurants dotting the area. Meanwhile, Playa Contramar, Playa Manzanillo, and Playa Las Gatas are the preferred beaches of those who love snorkeling. For off-water activities, visitors can check out the artifacts at the Archaeological Museum of the Costa Grande or simply take a stroll around town to see and experience the local culture. Choose from the best VRBO accommodations in Ixtapa, Mexico to ensure that you’ll have a comfortable night’s rest here.
