Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo are two different places that form a dual vacation concept known as Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo. It is a destination full of options for adventure tourism, with activities that are different, that we can hardly do in our places of origin and that fill our body and spirit with energy. So, if you are thinking of taking any of the flights to Zihuatanejo as a couple to share these experiences, we have selected the activities that you can do with your mate and that will also become experiences of connection and learning with that important person.


A walk, holding hands

Imagine exploring while walking one of the environments with greater biodiversity and natural wealth of Mexico, a place where you can make trips on flat terrains or slopes to increase physical endurance, and perhaps stop at times when either of you can see one of the spectacular birds that live in the region.


A more extreme ride in all-terrain vehicles

Known as ATV’s, there are a number of places in the vicinity where you can make tours of several hours riding both the same vehicle through the spectacular landscapes of the region, huge farms of coconut palms or a short tour of a couple of hours at sunset to get to the beach and enjoy one of the most beautiful sunsets in the world.


Share the beauty that Diving and Snorkeling offers

Few things can be as romantic as immersing yourself in the silence and depth of the ocean, taken by the hand of your partner and watching the variety of fish with bright colors. The marine fauna that you can find is very interesting, but above all unique, since you can still find small places that haven´t been fully explored.


Work as a team in the Kayak

Trying to move these lightweight boats between two people will test your coordination and communication skills, and it can be very fun when everyone moves to different sides. The variety of beaches can offer some with quite calm waters for those who hardly experience this activity and that in a certain way, is the safest for both.


The bike path offers a unique landscape

In Ixtapa has built a circuit with a surface that runs through much of the city and passes through traditional and emblematic places, whether to go to the mall or to exercise, is one of our favorites. It is safe, clean and with some slopes, that makes the journey entertaining.
