Distance Ixtapa to Mexico City

by RuiOliveira

Hello everybody,

i´m planning a trip to Ixtapa.
I want to know if anybody knows how many hours, by bus, i choose Estrella Doro, from Mexico City to Ixtapa?
Is it safe to travel at night by bus?

all air companies want more or less $250 USD

It's some 650 km and 8-9 hours to Zijuantaneho and there is some 15 more min to Ixtapa. It's safe to travel at night. Spent several nights on bus. 1 class buses are even more comfortable than airplanes (not to mention de-lux class)

Traveling the Ixtapa > Mexico City route at night is advised against by most sources I find reputable. The Zihua > ACA stretch of road is known to be active with bandits. The vast majority of busses pass without problem (now often with armed guards on board or in convoy fashion). Bandits isn't the only thing to be concerned about, stray animals, poor road conditions, etc. And, traveling at night means you'll miss some interesting geography. Estrella de Oro is the bus company I think offers the best/highest quality service on the route. Check prices and schedules at www.estrelladeoro.com.mx By the way, I think an air ticket connecting Mexico City with Zihuatanejo goes for about US$120.

Try click.com.mx and you'll get some discount airfares, I just tried for Ixtapa and it goes around 90USD in February.

Buses are safe and confortable; i've even made it driving by car and there are no problems.

I love Ixtapa.


P.S. Be aware, transportation from Zihua airport to Ixtapa may cost up to 20USD per person depending on the kind of van you choose, try all choices before buying.

Travel Tips for Ixtapa

Snorkelling at Ixtapa Island

by toontown

One day we took a bus down to the marina north of the Ixtapa hotel zone and then a quick ferry (just a small boat) over the Ixtapa Island. There was a small cove on the west side of the island, where the water was warm, the beer cold and some decent snorkeling. It was nice and deep, getting cut on coral was not really a concern, but lots of interesting trenches and marine life to look at below. There were several beach cafes all vying for our business, for both drinks and fin and snorkel rental.

Ixtapa - Zihuatenejo

by kucha

"Pacific Resort Town"

I've visited Ixtapa - Zihuatenejo a number of time in the past 15 years and have watched it go from "sleepy fishing town" to a major tourist destination. Despite the expansion, the area still manages to keep conjestion down and, when you stay at one of the many vacation resorts in the area, it feels a little bit more relaxed. Try to avoid spring break -- even though the weather is truly idea in the Spring -- as well as the classic spring break haunts. There are plenty of good restaurants and bars -- other than Carols and Charlies or Senor Frog's!

One Crazy Week

by freespirit13

Ixtapa is a great city, where there's a nice beach, very friendly people and lots of clubs thst are just a short walk away. When I came here with three of my friends, I got a whole new meaning of "living the lazy life" and it was great for a week.

What I'll miss the most is that everyone that's on vacation is basically there to have a good time, so it's smiles all around and everyone is very talkative and friendly. The GOs usually are very nice and make a good job of keeping entertainment going all day and all night.
