Things to Do in Ixtapa
Opened to the public in 2013, the Xihuacan Museum and Archeological Site offers a unique look at a pre-Columbian temple site as archeologists uncover it. Located in the area around Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo, on Mexico’s Pacific coast, the archeological site include a religious pyramid about 45 feet tall and 300 feet square at the base, which remains only partially uncovered, and an ancient ball court that is one of the largest ancient courts in Mexico, second only to Chichen Itza’s. The nearby museum houses around 800 artifacts uncovered at the site, including ancient pottery, tools and art works, along with exhibits about the people who inhabited the area across more than four millennia.
Magic World Aquatic Park is packed with splashy entertainment perfect for the whole family. With the action centered around a pirate ship and seven slides descending into a wading pool, children can embrace the fantasyland experience while the rest of the family enjoys a lazy river, a wave pool, and drinks.
