Taxi Fare from Ixtapa to Zih?

We need to spend one night in either Ixtapa or Zih after spending the previous two weeks in Ixtapa at the BVG Marina. We want a hotel for one night...our private pick up can be from either Ixtapa or Zih (same price). We are considering the Hotel Irma in Zih. But if there is something as nice in Ixtapa, we'll save the taxi fare, if that's even a consideration? Any suggestions for a reasonably priced one niter - clean is most important criteria! Thanks.

I think the taxi fare should not be a consideration. It is not that much: $5 to $7. Really. Try something different like La Madera or La Ropa.

We also like Bungalows Vepao and Casa Gloria Maria. Nice clean rooms right on the beach, nice new pool, but not so comfortable beds.

If you want to stay in Ixtapa for just a night, try the Posada Real which is on the North. It's about $90 and includes beverages.

I would suggest a change of pace from Ixtapa. Irma in the funky cool Madera district is a clean, quaint hotel. It's sister hotel on LaRopa is nice Villas Mexicana. Catalina is nice too. prices range from 70-100 per night so affordable. The taxi fare is 7-8 bucks and will be gained in the lower hotel price. Cost to airport is about the same from both locations.

Cheers!

Good choice!

That will give you a nice, if too short, idea of what it would be like to stay in Zihua compared to Ixtapa.

There are a few nice restaurants in walking distance, too....Patio Mexica/Rufos Grill, La Casa Vieja, Il Mare which is one of our favourites and has an amazing view at sunset. Just walk up over the hill from the hotel on the main road to la Ropa beach and watch for the sign on the ocean side! :)
