Ixtapa Zihuatanejo FishingCortez Yacht
Ixtapa / Xihuatanejo has the VERY BEST of everything in Mexico!

Ixtapa deep sea fishing is a "must do" here among many other activities. Best of all, the natives are overly friendly, and one leaves with the feeling that their schools must surely teach a course in tourism, and how to make the tourist want to return, often!

The waters of Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo, Mexico are particularly appealing and exciting to fish since there is a traditional rich history of tremendous sport fishing stocks as well as a lack of angling pressure.

Ixtapa Fishing
Ixtap sport fishing for species such as Pacific Sailfish, Blue & Black Marlin, Yellowfin Tuna, Dorado, and Wahoo as well as an assortment of inshore species including Roosterfish, Snapper, Grouper, Spanish Mackerel, and Yellowtail Jacks are available throughout the year.

The Climate
Tropical and warm is the general rule of thumb, in the mid to upper 80's, with water temperatures about the same. Dress throughout the area is casual and comfortable, though you need to be wary of the sunburn. Don't shed clothes for too long, lest you'll surely ruin your vacation.
