At Cala de Mar Resort & Spa Ixtapa, positioned on the cliffs above the Pacific Ocean, crowds are far away and the sunsets are nothing short of extraordinary. Amazing views are found nearly everywhere at the resort, from the on-site restaurants to two infinity-edge swimming pools. Gaze into the ocean from the open-air massage area at the resort's breathtaking spa, named the best in Mexico by Condé Nast Traveler in 2012 and 2013. You would never guess that this luxurious stretch of land used to be a humble coconut plantation. Travelers revel in Ixtapa for its warm weather, soft beaches and proximity to activities in Zihuatanejo.
Learn to cook Mexican cuisine with a professional chef. From a trip to the market to preparing and plating the food, this is one of the most hands-on experiences with traditional Mexican cooking you will ever find.
On a former coconut plantation, the natural landscape around Zihuatanejo lends its beauty to the Palma Real Golf Course, an original Robert Trent Jones Jr. design. The course is a par 72 with plenty of challenges.
Guests interested in casting a line can charter a journey with Capella. A professional crew will guide you on board and if you love what you catch, the hotel's culinary staff will gladly prepare it as your dinner.
There's no better view of Playa Larga and the Pacific beyond than from between the gentle ears of a horse. With one of Capella's horseback riding guides, fulfill your lifelong dream of horseback riding on the beach.
Get out of here, sweet and sour mix. Capella uses only the freshest and finest ingredients and top-shelf liquors to craft the country's traditional cocktail and the hotel mixologist loves to walk guests through the perfect recipe.
Should you decide to make time for a trip out on the water during your stay, the Cala de Mar Resort & Spa Ixtapa Personal Assistants are happy to arrange a romantic cruise, sunset tour or snorkeling and diving adventure in the reefs.
Ixtapa's climate is described as tropical savannah. Winters are dry and the warmest months are usually late June through early September, with average daily temperatures around 89 degrees. "Cold" season is January to May but one can hardly describe Ixtapa's 67-degree "coldest" day as truly cold. Enjoy your warm vacation.
