Any photo of the beaches of Ixtapa is enough to confirm why it is a privileged place for luxury resorts. The Mexican government itself decided to convert the shores of Ixtapa, near Zihuatanejo, into an area purely for the enjoyment of the Pacific ocean. Today, it is the third most visited destination in Mexico, after Cancún and Puerto Vallarta. As a guest of Barceló Hotels & Resorts in Itxapa, you have the opportunity to discover all the treasures of this destination, a source of pride for Mexicans which enchants travellers from all over the world.
The beaches of Ixtapa are wide and quiet, inviting you to relax on a sun lounger, swim in the crystal-clear waters while viewing the sea bed as if through glass, or take part in water sports. Near this natural enclave is the town of Zihuatanejo, of pre-Columbian origin, with impressive archaeological remains such as La Soledad de Maciel. In colonial times it was converted into a port town and still retains that maritime charm - despite having grown with the influx of travellers - keeping the simple and welcoming way of life of a small town.
The old town is a just step away from the Barceló Hotel & Resort in Ixtapa, which is also the best place for spending days on the beach, relaxing as a family or as a couple. The resort on the Palmar beachfront has several swimming pools, rooms overlooking the Pacific ocean and local and international cuisine that will surprise every palate. Here there is no routine; every day is dedicated to relaxing your body and mind while doing everything you have dreamed of.
