Where would you recommend a fellow member to go to…
We eat one to two meals in the condo, making the cost of food very affordable. We tried various restaurants in Ixtapa and Zihwa and were never disappointed. The fresh fruits, fish and shrimp were my favorites.
Zihwa has a couple markets to shop. The people are very nice and don’t chase you down to buy something.
Ixtapa Island was our favorite day trip. We found three unique beaches, from coral with snorkeling to white sand with calm waves. Each day was consistently in the upper 80s with a calm breeze.
What was your favorite…
The Pacifica Resort Ixtapa is amazing. The resort is built into the side of a large hill. There is a tram that can take you to the top of the resort and the views are spectacular. Housekeeping was A+.
Why did you choose this destination? Were you traveling for a special occasion?
This was our second trip. We knew what to expect and were not disappointed.
What was your favorite memory of your vacation?
Too hard to chose so I have two: Watching the excitement of our son snorkeling for the first time. He loved it so much that we went three times!
Member Chris S.’s son on his first snorkeling trip in Ixtapa, Mexico.
Also, watching the Green Bay packers beat the Dallas Cowboys at the sports bar at the resort! It was not only a nail biter but allowed us to meet many Packer fans.
Any tips for a traveler going to this resort or destination? Anything you think they should bring?
Our family consists of my husband, five-year-old son and myself. The cartoons are in Spanish and our room did not have a DVD player. Unfortunately the resort did not have one for our room but I was able to purchase a new one for less than $20 USD. Watching a couple movies we brought gave our son some downtime from all the fun of the beaches and pools.
