We took a bus from our hotel in Ixtapa ( 9 pesos ), caught the water taxis at Playa Linda ( 20 pesos ) on a Saturday with the expectation that it would be crowded but it wasn't. This time of year is low season so we were pleasantly surprised . Since we didn't want to go snorkeling we stayed at the first beach the water taxi stopped at. We sat down at Lili Cipriani restaurant 15' from the water and enjoyed some cervecas and appetizers. The beach behind us was only about 2 minutes away (great for snorkeling) but we just wanted to swim and this was the best place. Beer was 25 pesos but their margarita prices were steep (120 pesos). They had some margaritas that were poured into pineapples or coconuts that looked wonderful for 150 pesos so maybe the prices weren't all that bad because they looked huge. Our waiter was named Erick and he was very friendly and helpful. For a long time we were the only gringos on the beach but everyone there was so friendly they made us feel right at home.
