Zihuatanejo Things to See and Do

follow us

Both Zihuatanejo and Ixtapa are full of fun activities for the whole family. When a break from the beach is needed, have a look around town. Get to know Mexico and its amazing culture. There is a history museum that teaches about the area. There are sporting activities such as fishing, tennis, golf and SCUBA for the more athletic and adventurous. The nature lover will enjoy birdwatching and hiking. Also, there is lots of shopping to be done. Be sure to check out the markets, as well as the souvenir and jewelry shops. Take the kids to a water park for something different, and enjoy delicious seafood while watching the sunset over the ocean.
