Since it's your first trip, please review all of the great information located under Top Questions. Dinner and shopping in Zihua would be fun. Have a great trip and please post a trip report when you get home.

I wish I was going to be there! You'll have a great time at the Dorado and will meet lots of people from Wisconsin and Minnesota. Enjoy your meals in the evenings across the street and in Zihua! In Ixtapa, try Solaido (across from Park Royal) and Los Bigotes de Zapata if it's still behind Scruples. Make sure you take a cab to LaRopa one evening for dinner in the sand at a place like Paty's. Wear lots of sunscreen and drink plenty of water, too.

A dinner at Paty's or next door at Elvira's is a great experience. Go just before sunset, have a great romantic meal on the beach with your feet in the sand and the surf a few feet away. Fantastic sunsets!

L&T!

When you decide to "stay in" for dinner one night at the Terraza del Mar (the seaside restaurant at the Dorado) if there is something that you are jones-ing for, like say a grilled half chicken, and you don't see it on the menu, just ask and they will make it appear!! *POOF*!!

Or if you decide to go out fishing for a day, and you catch an "eater", simply bring it back to the hotel, and they will have your catch prepared for you as that evenings dinner.

Wonderful people there! You are going to love the place!

Toots1966,

We will be in Zihua the 19th to the 26th. Staying in a condo above La Ropa, 4th trip in 2 years. You will have to spend a day on La Ropa also try the Catalina for drinks and dinner one night.
