All-Inclusive Luxury Resort Right on Beach
On most nights at Tesoro Resorts Ixtapa in Mexico, colorfully costumed dancers whirl on an outdoor stage as audiences bask in the perpetually warm evening air. The resort’s nightly entertainment options can include Mexican folk dancing, live music, and tropically themed fiestas. Each evening’s events cap off a fun-filled day for guests of the all-inclusive resort—which sits right on the beach, along the bustling Playa del Palmar strip.
Deluxe garden-view and ocean-view rooms are decorated with vibrant prints on the walls and linens, and each room comes with a private patio overlooking the Pacific Ocean or the resort’s blooming tropical garden. At the many restaurants onsite, all you have to do is flash your all-inclusive wristband to feast on à la carte fare. Each laid-back restaurant is different: El Mesón serves authentic Mexican dishes, and Arrecifes offers casual snacks such as hamburgers and nachos.
In addition to the resort’s dining options, there’s an outdoor swim-up bar, a quiet lobby bar, and a lounge that stays open 24/7. The all-inclusive package entitles you to unlimited meals, snacks, and beverages—including wine and beer—as well as room service.
The resort’s giant freshwater pool looks like an exotic lagoon, with rocks forming perfect spots for sunbathing and savoring views of the Pacific and the surrounding mountains. Every day, you can take advantage of a full menu of scheduled activities, including water polo and beach volleyball. There’s even a kids’ club for pintsize guests, who can take part in beach soccer games and wildlife-related programs under the supervision of professional counselors.
Ixtapa, Mexico: Planned Resort Community with Laid-Back Beach Activities
About 150 miles up the coast from Acapulco on the western shore of Mexico, a 12-mile-long beach stretches alongside the city of Ixtapa. Planned by the government as a tourist destination, Ixtapa is characterized by near-perfect weather, white sand, and a startling 5,000 hotel rooms, most of which are in high-rises overlooking the ocean. One of Ixtapa’s loveliest spots is Playa la Ropa, which is probably the town’s most popular—and most social—beach. Here you’ll find parasailers floating across the waves and families picnicking on the sand.
Tesoro Resorts Ixtapa is sandwiched between the ocean and the lively Playa del Palmar strip. Perfect for walking, this bustling thoroughfare is lined with restaurants, souvenir vendors, and shops of all kinds. At the many watersports kiosks stationed along the strip, you can rent equipment or sign up for lessons to learn how to surf, kayak, or go snorkeling in the crystal-clear Pacific.
