Nayz_Ftz's City Tips

  • If you're not a fan of seafood, you must try the "aporreadillo," which is also a local specialty made with beef.
  • There are various specialties of the region but the most famous dish is called "tiritas de pescado" (fish strips).
  • Seafood is highly recommended in Ixtapa and there are plenty of options on offer.
  • Feel like a local and try the food from the "loncherías" at the municipal market.

    La Perla is a great restaurant on the seafront in Playa La Ropa, offering seafood, Mexican and international dishes, plus cocktails, Mexican wines, tequila, and mezcal. Located right on the beach, dining can be very casual — you might even see a swimsuit or two!
