  • This beach or area has to be divided into several, it's the beach to the street side so when you arrive there you first run into a tourist street full of souvenirs and beach toys products, after about a 100 meters you come to the center of the artisan market, in which you also can see Veracruz dancers. To the left you have a large (still kind of virgin beach), to the left side is also a small beach but it's not so nice and just used for the boats. If you go straight then you probably will see a large line of people, they are waiting there for the boat ride to cross to the Ixtapa Island, which by the way is a must be to visit.
  • Zero percent chance of rain from December to May- what are you waiting for? Safe, sunny and clean - fun? WOW
