Trips to Mexico have consistently proven to be powerful travel rewards and no place brings together more of what incentive travelers want than Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo. This Pacific coast dual-destination sits at the foot of the vibrant green Sierra Madre range; its biodiversity and natural beauty inspire an intriguing variety of eco-minded tours—including seasonal whale sightings and turtle hatchings. Deep-sea big game fishing is another prime attraction, with Zihuatanejo as the location of one of the world’s top sailfish tournaments. On land, luxurious boutique hotels and resorts offer unparalleled service and accommodations, including sumptuous spas and restaurants with views as exquisite as the menus (Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo was, in fact, chosen by FOOD &WINE magazine as the site of one of its prestigious festivals.) Add in Ixtapa’s championship golf and exciting nightlife—plus the unmistakable appeal of Zihuatanejo’s small town charm—and this dual-destination hits a home run every time.
