Ixtapa Marina

We came into the marina at Ixtapa for a few weeks.  We needed to find a nice, safe, and secure location for the boat because we are heading back to the USA for a week in March.

The channel into the harbor is a bit challenging.  Dredging started a couple of days after our arrival.

Ixtapa has most of the tourist hotels and one very long and beautiful sandy beach. The marina manager is very nice and attentive. We had three deliveres from Amazon within a couple of days of our arrival.

Every town has a welcome sign!
It’s winter and no chance of snow!

Zihuatanejo is a 17 peso and 20-minute bus ride away. Zihua has a beautiful looking bay and all the charming ambiance you could ask for.

Zihuatanejo is also home to Guitarfest next week. This annual event is supposed to be exceptional. We’ve already purchased tickets to a very exclusive dinner and have plans to attend other venues for some would class listening.

Mexico is full of outstanding art!

I doubt any other locations we encounter going southbound are going to be as nice as Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo. We have friends buying a condo here.  We understand the attraction they have to Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo.

Our little friend in the marina, again.


  1. Looks awesome, so jealous! Where are you going in the USA? MI & WA? Safe travels, we miss you!
