Here Now suggestions for a View and a Cocktail

Looking for a nice way to wrap up our stay. Spanish cocktail with an ocean view sounds good. Recommendations??

Hotel Catalina overlooking LaRopa....sigh!! Nice happy hour and watch the sun sinking into the bay...Very nice gentleman that is the bartender there. Pretty patio area. If you are "ON" laropa during the day you can take the steps up for happy hour. The bartender on the beach might ask if you are a guest? Just say "Sunset bar" and it's no problem. Or you can enter from the street too. LOTS of steps so you know.

Or Il Mare for dinner just before sunset. I always try to get the little corner table...love to watch the sunset and then the lights that come on in town and on the hillside. Very pretty setting. Nice wine selection.

Or if you like "feet in the sand" Elvira's right on LaRopa is good as is Paty's next door. Lovely view of Laropa and sunset. Next door to them is Villa Mexicana if you want to view the beach and sunset but prefer to "not " have your toes in the sand. It's right there.

Have fun!

Agree with both of the previous suggestions.

Also Kau Kan, Club Intrawest, or Tentanciones are nice for a sunset drink!

Thank you for those suggestions. Any suggestions for Ixtapa or should I post directly on that board? Not sure which direction we will head.

And that was supposed to read "Spanish coffee or cocktail."

El Faro restaurant at the Pacifica resort is a great view of the sunset into the water off Ixtapa.

Just a reminder to the winter visitors. This time of the year Happy Hour and Sunset are not the same! LOL
