Isla IxtapaIsla Ixtapa is a beautiful oasis from the concrete jungle of Ixtapa. The turquoise waters are crystal-clear, calm and great for snorkeling. Isla Ixtapa has four beaches; Playa Corales on the back side of the island is the nicest and quietest, with soft white sand, an offshore coral reef and little tide pools harboring starfish and sea urchins. Frequent boats to Isla Ixtapa depart from Playa Linda’s pier.
Cocodrilario Playa Linda has a small cocodrilario (crocodile reserve) that is also home to fat iguanas and several bird species. You can watch the crocs from the safety of the well-fenced wooden viewing platform located near the bus stop.
