Dining Out in Ixtapa and Zihuatenjo

Hi all

We are returning in January 2015 to Ixtapa after a 20 year absence . While we are staying at the Azul Grand , we realize AI food can be quite repetitive , we are looking for some coaching as to where some great evening dining out options might be located . We are not picky eaters and love to try just about any culinary concoctions ...ha ha

As well, are there any recommended Sunset Dining cruises and some to stay away from .

Looking forward to your valued information.

Not a cruise but if you want an unique "dining" experience go to Papa Locas. Once strictly a Mexican customer base many Gringos now eat there,

Great tacos at incredibly low prices, fabulous baked potatoes with many toppings & the best Pico de Gallo in Mexico. Prices so low my average bill is under $3 US.

Plastic tables right on the street so do not expect luxury. Just great food in a packed cafe.

I can vouch for those baked potatoes at Papas Locas- they are scrumptious!! HUGE and stuffed full of creamy yummy goodness. We finally made it there for the first time last winter and it is definitely on our list of 'must-gos' for future trips.

It is a bit tricky to find, if you aren't overly familiar with downtown- so we took a taxi.
