      hello, all --

      has anyone been on this tour? their website is at wildlifeconnection.com/dolph..., and it sounds good (not one of those where they capture the dolphins and drug them so you can swim with them in a swimming pool), but has anyone had personal experience with this company or this tour?

    • Which all inclusive to stay at?

      Playa del Carmen May 21, 2015 at 12:52 PM

      Help, I have been researching all inclusive resorts all day in Playa Del Carmen and I am still not sure where to stay. My husband and I are going in October. We want to be around other people and have fun, but want alone time too. We would like to stay where it is tropical and has a Caribbean flavor. We are on a budget but could probably splurge some to stay in a nice resort. We are in our early 50's so were not really into kids. We would like to go into town and if its within walking distance that would be nice, but not a requirement. My husband likes to dive and I like to snorkel. Any suggestions?

    • All Inclusive or not

      by Bajamick Online Now Apr 4, 2013 at 6:58 AM

      We are trying to decide if we want to book an AI resort in lxtapa. My concern is that we don't necessarily want to be tied down to one resort for meals but eating out can be expensive if we have a martini before dinner and a bottle of wine with dinner. Are there restaurants in lxtapa where we can take our own wine and pay a corkage fee?

    • Local Culture & Photography in Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo?

      by slaskigoral Online Now Jan 5, 2013 at 9:56 PM

      I will be spending a week in Ixtapa at the end of January/early February. I have been to Mexico twice before, to Puerto Vallarta and San Jose del Cabo. I am a historian & travel photographer, and am working on a photo blog of travel photography from my various journeys around the world. I am the type of traveler who likes to try and get 'off the beaten path', where possible. I know that staying in an AI is not exactly that, but I tend to spend little time in resorts and try to do independent travel whenever possible.

      For example, my highlights to PV were bus trips to colonial villages in the mountains, and in Cabo, traveling to Todos Santos and taking an ATV trip through the desert, where I photographed fascinating rural shrines.

      My time is limited to a week, but I would like to get any suggestions on places in the area that I could travel to to get some amazing photos and perspectives. Ideally, I would like to see some towns in the Guerrero mountains, either larger cities like Taxco or smaller villages. In the coastal towns, I like to wander and do street photography, particularly of shrines to the Virgin of Guadalupe - there are so many of them and they are very beautiful and creative!

      Can anyone recommend some interesting places to see in Ixtapa-Zih, for ex. churches, shrines or cemeteries? And any advice on hiring a local guide for a day or two who would be willing to take me to local villages, places where most tourists do not venture? Thank you kindly!!

      Hi!

      Anyone do the Dolfin encounter? It seems like a great thing to do in Ixtapa because it is much cheaper than in San Diego,California for example.

      Are reservations needed? What's the best way to get there from Zihuatanejo? We don't have a car.
