I really like this port of call and chose a return trip to Isla Ixtapa. I haven't been there is over 20 years, so saw a lot of changes to this most beautiful island. There were not enough beach chairs for the number of guests on the tour...but we ended up walking over to the other side of the island and found a spot that was little treasure over there. There were some hammocks we were allowed to use and this was so relaxing. We swam in the ocean on the other side as the water was calmer and found some most beautiful shells. It was very crowded on both sides of the island -- again, spring break, but returned for a very good lunch with the tour group. We were taken back to Zihautanejo and walked down the tourist area and stopped for a cold beer at one of the restaurants on the beach. We find that this is the area where people are the most aggressive in terms of asking for tips and it hasn't changed at all. The guy that helps you into the boat, 'where's my tip?', the guy helps you out of the boat, 'where's my tip?', the guy that brings your beer, 'good price on beer, so be sure to leave me a big tip', the band is playing, 'did you enjoy the music, give me a tip'. Well, we know what to expect but still really love this port and this time didn't disappoint.
