You know about Acapulco and Puerto Vallarta, but are you familiar with Mexico’s lesser-known vacation destination in Ixtapa? Located on the Pacific coast of Mexico, approximately midway between the vacation hot spots of Acapulco and Puerto Vallarta, this coastal retreat is an excellent place to find all-inclusive Ixtapa timeshare options, as well as traditional vacation ownership resorts, and holiday condo rentals.
Ixtapa Timeshare for Beaches, Boating, and Golfing
Many of the beaches near Ixtapa are wide natural expanses, perfect for sunning, swimming, or sailing. Close to the hotels and Ixtapa timeshares, you’ll likely find rental gear for jet skis, kayaks, and other water sports. A few of the beaches are rocky, so bring your water shoes and perhaps your scuba gear, as some of these locations may not be well suited for sunbathing and sand castles.
For boaters, the Ixtapa Marina lies at the north end of the area’s arcing shoreline. The Marina Ixtapa is the largest marina in Mexico, with two basin areas, capacity for 583 boats (in sizes from 15 feet to 200 feet in length), and 24/7 security. The marina includes a launch ramp for boats of 30 feet or less, potable water, pump out services, showers, restrooms, and laundry service.
Adjacent to the marina, the Marina Ixtapa Náutica Golf Course is a Robert von Hagge, links-style course. Defined by narrow fairways, large bunkers, and undulating greens, the challenging course offers four sets of tees, making it enjoyable for even the average golfer to play. Further south, the Robert Trent Jones Jr.-designed Ixtapa Golf Course (Campo de Golf Palma Real Ixtapa) offers a very different golfing experience, with wider fairways, yet strategic challenges, which can occasionally include the presence of crocodiles along the water features.
Be Savvy to the Resale Opportunities in Ixtapa Timeshares
Although this Mexico timeshare resale and rental vacation destination may not (yet) be a household name, Ixtapa features a curving coastline where many elegant high-rise hotels, timeshares, and beachside restaurants line the shore. With 350 days of sunshine annually, a calm waterfront, and miles of natural beaches where dolphins are known to play just off shore, escaping to an Ixtapa vacation ownership resale or resort rental could quickly turn into the best vacation decision you’ve ever made.
