Ixtapa or Zihuatanejo?
Having NEVER been before and I'm just starting to research it for February 2015. We are more inclined to stay at a bigger Hotel or an AI when we first try out a new destination, at least until we get our feet wet.
Our likes are:
Mexican Ambiance, decent size pool(s), clean, clean and clean, directly on a beach, medium priced - moderate priced (2 week stay flight included around $5,000.00) for the two of us. Breakfast included / small kitchette area, balcony in a must and walking distance to restaurants.
From what I've read the two areas are only minutes away from one another? Ixtapa being the mega all inclusives and Zihuatanejo more Fishing Village type?
If it helps we have been to Bucerias, Huatulco and Rincon de Guayabitos and loved them all for the small town feel.
Thank-you for your help in pointing me in the right direction.
