With almost two miles of sand, this beach is semi private and off the grid for a  day of long walks, jogging or soaking up rays. 

Playa Larga

LAS GATAS

It’s good for snorkeling (there’s some coral) and as a swimming spot for children, but beware of sea urchins. Beach shacks and restaurants rent out snorkeling gear for around M$150 per day. Boats depart frequently from Zihuatanejo's pier.

getting around

Moving around in Ixtapa Zihuatanejo is really simple due to its size. The most convenient option is the taxi , which you can find everywhere; their fairs are fixed and you can check them inside the cabs, however, it is a good suggestion to confirm the prices with the driver before taking the ride. You can as well call for a cab, for more information click here. 

Alternatively, there are a great number of local buses, which is the cheapest way to get a lift, they offer rides between Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo as well as several beaches. The service is available from 6 am to 11 pm, and the price goes from 4.50 to 7 pesos depending on the origin and destination. 

There are as well several car rental agencies with very complete catalogues. You will be able to find these agencies in the airport at Zihuatanejo as well as Ixtapa.
