Los Gatos Beach - Zihuatanejo, Mexico

Ixtapa

Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo are located right next to each other along a stretch of the Pacific coast known as the "Mexican Riviera." Ixtapa, meaning "white place" in Náhuatl, is a beautiful resort town with amazing beaches, the place honeymoon couples go for luxurious resorts and discos. Zihuatanejo is an old fishing town, full of cobblestone streets, boutiques and traditional markets. There are plenty of bars and restaurants and on Sunday night there is dancing and folkloric music at the zócalo (main town square). Both of these neighboring vacation destinations share impressive vistas with the crashing waves of the Pacific to the west and the Sierra Madre del Sur mountain chain to the east. Some hot tips for this area include great whale-watching during the annual migration in winter months and the more than 30 scuba diving sites in the vicinity. Of course there are many other activities to enjoy in this area to make your honeymoon an event to remember.
