Make a Holiday Rental Apartment in Ixtapa, Mexico, Your Home Away From Home

Ixtapa is a Mexican coastal resort, located along the country’s Pacific coastline, approximately 150 miles northwest of Acapulco. A government planned tourist resort, built on the site of a coconut plantation and mangrove estuary in the early 1970’s, Ixtapa is now a popular holiday destination amongst national and international tourists alike. Tourists are drawn by the resort’s more laid-back and low-key atmosphere, when compared to the larger and livelier resorts to be found elsewhere on the so-called Mexican Riviera. Visitors spending their holidays in Ixtapa will find that there is a great selection of self catering holiday rental accommodation available here. This accommodation is mainly in the form of villas and apartments, many with the use of a private pool and enjoying spectacular ocean views.
