Lives in Playa del Carmen
Since Jul 2009
35-49 year old male
Hi there, as you have already noticed I am based at the Mexican Caribbean a beautifull place full of color and life, wonderfull landscapes, beaches and the extraordinary blue caribbean sea, such a paradise... I was born in Mexico City , i used to live in downtown, pretty close to the place in wich the archaeologist Eduardo Matos Moctezuma, found the ruins of the Main Temple of the Aztec Civilization. I am a Story Teller, i always knew it, and when someone listen to my words i feel so glad, because i can bring back to the life the magic of the aztecs, the mayas, the ancient cities that grew up in the middle of the jungle, and i can stil hear the roar of the jaguar, the song of the quetzal and i give a new dimention to the motives of the heroes that created our country and left a legacy that now we call History.

If you've got various outdoor demands to satisfy, then head here to Playa la Ropa. Here you can relax, while the kids or teens do something a bit more sporty — such as kayaking, parasailing, or jet skiing — plus, there are plenty of shops and restaurants to explore when you want to take a break from the fun on the sand.
One of the best beaches in Ixtapa — also certified as one of the country's cleanest — Playa el Palmar is a great place for visitors of all ages. Here you'll find a good mix of activities and relaxation opportunities, with the sound of the waves to soothe you. Or maybe rent an umbrella and other equipment at the beach club nearby.
Both the museum and the open-air archaeological site here give you lots of history to indulge in. You'll get to see the pyramids that are still being restored, and also learn more about what life used to be like here through various mock-ups and reconstructions. A must for all history buffs!
A great place for the little ones especially, Playa Las Gatas is blessed with calm waters ideal for paddling and swimming. You can also take a boat ride from here and explore the bay, or maybe do some snorkeling or even some diving in the clear waters — if you come prepared with your own equipment.
Vista Hermosa is a really beautiful and secluded beach, where you'll be greeted by nothing but an amazing view. The currents here can be tricky to navigate however, so you may want to swim with caution, or avoid the sea altogether, and relax on the sand to wait for the mesmerizing sunset.
Zihuatanejo Bay features a beautiful beach, and great waters for swimming and snorkeling. Plus, the flora in the surrounding area is also well worth exploring. If you happen to be here at sunrise or sunset then a a boat ride around the bay would be the perfect way to experience this incredibly peaceful area.
If you are looking for some real peace and quiet, then a trip to Playa Blanca is just the thing for you. Leave the noise of the city behind you and enjoy being at one with the calm sea here — whether you're swimming, snorkeling, taking a boat ride, or simply relaxing to the sound of the lapping water on the shore.
Playa Quieta is another spot where relaxation and solitude away from the city is possible. It's a great place to spend a beach day as a family or enjoy some alone time, and there are also some restaurants with palapas (thatched umbrellas), where you can escape the sun and enjoy snacks and drinks.
There are four different beaches to visit on this island, so take your time to wander around this beautiful piece of paradise. Restaurants on each beach offer delicious, fresh food that you can enjoy after swimming or snorkeling — admiring all the brightly colored fish and coral as you go — making Ixtapa Island a must-see.
