Next, spot crocodiles, lagoon turtles, birds, and iguanas as you pass the Playa Linda animal preserve. Head to the yacht club and the Marina golf course for a photo-op, then continue to the only Catholic church in Ixtapa. Past that, stop at a lookout point for panoramic views of Ixtapa.

We had our tour with Francisco. Everything went as planned. He took us to all parts of Zihua, especially the parts you don't see. His knowledge of the area was incredible. I would recommend this to anyone going there. He was open to taking us anywhere or spending as much time as we wanted.
We had an excellent time on our tour... With touring Ixtapa, Playa Linda, the crocodile preserve, than on to Zihuatanejo, through the markets, and into the hills for some beautiful views and pictures, than off to a village for some good food. Plus we had tons of good discussion and talks on the 4.5 hour tour on the area, politics both in Mexico and the USA, the people, and most anything we wanted to talk about... We would absolutely do a trip through them again!!
Juan Lopez was excellent, showing us the history of Ixpata, how it relates to Zihuatanejo. He drove us to important parts of the 2 towns and explained the way of life of the locals/tourists. He is extremely flexible, telling us what the towns and surroundings have to offer and allowing us to cater the half day tour to our family of 5 with 3 adult children. All of us really appreciated his help making our tour such a wonderful special discovery of Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo.
