There will be an agent with your package (ex. Worryfree vacations) waiting for you when you exit the security area at the airport---you can't miss them! They speak excellent English and are there to answer any and all questions. Once you are on the right bus for your hotel they will give you info over the bus loud speaker and point out sights of interest along the way to Ixtapa. Have some cash ready as there will be a young man on the bus selling Coronas:-) Welcome to Mexico!

I don't know much about the Krystal, but we have always stayed at the Dorado and have had no complaints. There are never enough chairs to go around at any of the nice hotel pools. It is nice to just find a spot on the beach to hang for awhile and if you can score an umbrella you could even spend the day on the sand. It is hot so take sandals. I walk the beach every day, but its necessary to stay in the wet part if you don't have shoes. Be sure to spend at least one day on Las Gatas or La Ropa as there are plenty of chairs there as well as shade, great food and cold beverages! In fact we MUCH prefer these locat1ons to the hotel pools---they could be anywhere in the world---why not take advantage of being in Mexico?????

We like JJ's in Ixtapa for breakfast (across from the Barcelo but I've heard it has a new name this year) and I also love breakfast at Buccanero's at the Marina. We like Emellio's pizza in Ixtapa and have had lots of fun also at Frank's Sport's Bar. If you are a hockey fan ("true Minnesotan") he is always playing NHL and College hockey games on the tv's there. We have watched the Gophers in various tournaments there for three years. There is nothing better than to hear "M-I-N-N-E-S-O-T-A!!!!" at an open air bar in 90 degree weather when you know everyone back home is FREEZING! We like cocktails at el Faro to watch the sunset (and dinner is nice too, but pricey in my opinion) and have had good food at any of the multitude of restaurants in and around Ixtapa's shopping area. We are staying in Zihua this year and look forward to dining at some of our favorite places again: La Cala (upscale and a little pricey, but worth it for the ambience---again in my opinion), La Escollera (on the cliff), Rosy's, Elvira's, Pady's, Bandido's and trying many new places that have been recommended on the board.

There is no such thing as a bad vacation in this area of the world (in my opinion)!!!!! This will be our fourth trip and we find it hard to even consider going anywhere else. There is a great big world out there, but once you've found paradise it's hard to try anything else:-) ENJOY your trip!!!!!
