Great local beach, with mostly locals. Souvenir shopping with covered walkway. My daughter went parasailing! (about 25$ CAD) and then went on a banana boat tour of the bay. Great place to catch the water taxi to Ixtapa Island.

Not impressed with Playa Linda. It was packed with tour buses and nothing special. The market wasn't selling anything special, just the usual tourists stuff. Opted to return to hotel beach.

Massage on the beach. We'd heard prior to our arrival the best massage hut was the yellow shirts at the end before the pier. The referral was bang on. Was a phenomenal massage we enjoyed twice during our stay. Could have gone every day. 200...More

Hola! estaremos hospedados a 2 cuadras de la playa Madera. Según entendí, para ir a la isla Ixtapa hay que tomar una lancha en Playa Linda. Alguien sabe cómo llegar y si es muy lejos?
