People vacation to Mexico for a variety of reasons. Some want to enjoy the lively atmosphere and vibrant nightlife of the bigger cities, where the party never seems to stop. Others want to take advantage of great luxury shopping and cultural tours that move you through time and history. Still others want the complete tropical experience, including everything from waking up to the sounds of the surf to lazy days spent entirely on the beach.
The Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo region is one of the more popular vacation destinations for those seeking a Mexico beach vacation. Although they are two distinct cities, Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo are often lumped together because of their proximity and their shared focus on tourism. They are located about 150 miles north of Acapulco, sharing the same stretch of the Costa Grande, but with fewer crowds and a more traditional atmosphere.
Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo is the third most popular tourist area in Mexico (after Cancun and Puerto Vallarta). It is known around the world as an ideal destination for history buffs and sports fisherman, as well as families who want to enjoy coastal Mexico without the traditionally young and unruly crowds associated with spring break destinations.
If you are a nature lover, a Mexico vacation villa is the perfect place to enjoy an eco-friendly trip without sacrificing comfort or luxury. Along the western coast of Mexico, where the seaside fishing town of Troncones is located, it is common to have both whale sightings and regular sea turtle releases. These sights can be enjoyed either from your private beach villa at Casa de la Sirena or as part of one of the tours or nature preservation organizations that make their home here.
