When Travelling it is best to use a Travel Belt to keep everything accessible and close to you. Also a Passport Wallet, something with RFID Protection as keeping all your cards, ID’s, and Passport in here it will prevent anyone trying to electronically steal your Identification.

There are room safes in each room and most hotels. Once you have arrived it is best to put everything in there. Every traveler will recommend the same thing. Pay with cash as much as possible, and never take your card out in places you don’t need to. This is not even because of any high crime, we are blessed to be somewhere safe, but if you lose your cards it’s a hassle to get it sorted out when you are here.

If you are on your way here, remember you can bring up to $10,000 in Cash or Travellers Cheques from your countries own currency with you. It is a good idea to bring Cash from home as the Banks will charge you a hefty fee for taking out Pesos on Foreign Cards. The fee will be the same whether you take out $100 pesos or $10000. Santander Bank (which is located within a 5 minute walk from the hotel) allows the most amount of pesos ($9000 per day) to be withdrawn at a time and has the lowest “VAT” fees of only $34 Pesos as compared to a hefty $174 Pesos at the BBVA Bank. Other banks often limit your withdrawals to a daily amount of $4000-$7000 Pesos.

If you are planning on staying here for an extended amount of time, it is better to Western Union Transfer to yourself in Mexico, but the best option is to get a Mexican Bank account at Intercam. All you need is your passport, your custom entry card, or visa (if you have one) and a copy of your hotel residency from the front Desk and a bank statement or utility bill from back home with your address that is not more than 3 months old, as well as a photo provided of your home back where you resided before coming to Mexico. 

You do not need a visa for the first 6 months, But NEVER throw out that customs card, you need it to exit the country.

If you are in Canada it is best to get a Bank of Montreal account before you go as they are the best in International Accounts and Transfers. There are 3 banks a block away from the hotel just behind the OXXO around the corner. You will have to use a teller

If any of you are moving your business here from Canada, and need some help with management to do so, please contact Connie and Zane, our business management team. They are a great resource: 1-250-486-8087.

BBV – This Bank seems to be compatible with most US and Canadian Cards. Mexicans seem to prefer this bank as well. Inter-Com Seems to as well take most cards easily and can link to Canadian accounts.

Santander – Has the lowest VAT fees and offers the maximum amount of pesos to be withdrawn per day.

Western Union – You have to go to Zihuatanejo about a 12 min drive.


Super Limpio

This place is a couple minutes walk across from the hotel where the little shops are behind the Oxxo around the corner. Dan and Jessi are the owners & speak English. Dan is a Canadian expat and an absolute pleasure to chat with, he is a wealth of knowledge about this place! They wash, dry and fold your clothes perfectly. The cost is calculated by the weight and is very reasonable $3-5 CAD/ load.


Ixtapa has one Market located in town a few minutes walk from the hotel. It has all the basics plus, but for a big grocery shop with variety you need to go to ZIhuatanejo.

The two Grocery and Ware stores are Bodega and Soriella.

The Bodega is akin to Walmart, Sam’s club (which is akin to Costco) and has the most diverse options. Where Soriella has fresher produce, healthier options, and an International food section.

For your fruits and Vegetables you want to go to the outdoor Markets. We know the best ones and we will be happy to show you. Make sure you always bring your own bags reusable bags, as most stores do not provide them.

There is also a small Organic and all natural food market on Saturdays. They are wonderful and the people who run it are fantastic! There is also a Health Food store named Cafe Ixtapa located in Zihuatanejo (40890, Los Cocos) near the local markets.

Shopping for clothes is a lot more expensive than Zihuatanejo, but there is better quality Swim and Beachwear in Ixtapa. At the Organic market there are a few booths of all Handmade clothing from regions all over Mexico. At all markets be prepared to barter if you want to. But make sure you speak enough Spanish to do so or have some help, or you will get “Gringo prices”. If you cannot find what you are looking for there are a few online options.

Amazon Mexico – You can order on Amazon but beware of the shipping as anything imported will be heavily taxed!

Mercado Libre – The best option with VERY good prices, they have free shipping and you can get almost anything! Drawback is the app is only in Spanish. The web page will translate but they do not accept many foreign cards. There is an easy solution however! Go to your local OXXO with your online shopping cart ready to pay and you select Pay with OXXO. Hand your phone to the teller. They will enter your order number and you pay at the store.

Costco Mexico – You can use your Costco Membership here or Purchase on for around $30 Can. Costco Ships from Mexico City and has free delivery.

Community Members coming – If anyone that is coming here has space, and would like to reach out to the folks here, Please do. There are certain things that are hard to get, or very expensive to be shipped. Especially for Doc of Detox products you can post on our Telegram BraveHeartNation and link up with our Ixtapa Family. We are all better together!


Our Main base is of course our hotel. This will be the hub of connecting with each other, and it is our beautiful Sanctuary. But like every other rental property in Mexico it has suffered from lack of tourism and needs repairs and improvements. These are already in progress and will be done in stages, so we ask if you are staying here you be patient with the staff and enjoy watching us all breath new life and completely restore this beautiful gem.

That being said, if you would prefer another rental place, or looking for a house, or somewhere pet friendly, or closer to shopping and local markets we can still assist you!

Playa La Ropa (La Ropa Beach)

Ahhh… For many people, this is the best beach in Zihuatanejo. Stunning Views, Laid back and fairly secluded, spending time on a beach such as Playa La Ropa will heal your soul. Many think La Ropa is one of the nicest Beaches in the World ! Early in the morning, before people are out and about, it’s lovely to walk La Ropa Beach, a silky soft sand beach that extends for about a mile. 19 Coconut trees provide shade, and the sea water is like a warm bath and smooth most of the time, making it ideal for swimming.Body surfing on the gentle thigh-high waves that roll up on the beach is also popular. You can rent paddle boards, go parasailing, or just enjoy the peace and quiet!

Playa Principal (Or Playa Municipal)

Playa Principal is the main beach right in front of the town of Zihuatanejo. While the beach is sandy with calm water, it isn’t suitable for swimming because of the amount of boat traffic. But it’s a great place for watching the local fishermen or getting a fishing charter (the Jack Crevalle fishing is excellent here).

Playa La Madera (Or Playa Madera)

The beach walkway in front of Playa Principal continues past several picturesque coves to nearby Playa Madera (or Madera Beach). The walkway has recently been rebuilt, and Playa Madera is now a beautiful 10- to 15-minute, oceanfront walk from downtown Zihua. This small Zihuatanejo beach is sandy, and the water is relatively calm closer to the shore. Bodysurfing is one of the most popular activities here, next to swimming.

Playa Las Gatas

Named for the harmless cat-whiskered nurse sharks that once hung out on the sandy bottom years ago, Playa Las Gatas is the perfect beach to get away from it all. It’s great for both snorkeling and swimming. A man-made breakwater of boulders keeps the shallow waters free of surf. So this beach in Zihuatanejo is ideal for children and adults who aren’t strong swimmers. Bring your snorkeling gear (or rent from a beach shack) because there’s a nice variety of colorful underwater marine life to view – from eels to angelfish and puffer fish. Also keep an eye out for the large bronze statue of Jesus submerged about 30 feet underwater!

Ixtapa Island (Isla Ixtapa)

One of the best day trips from Zihuatanejo is to take a water taxi to Ixtapa Island. Playa Cuachalalate This beautiful beach is sandy with calm waters. It’s the most popular beach (and the one closest to the boat dock). A short walk away is Playa Varadero This beach is also sandy and good for swimming. On the other side of the island Coral Beach offers snorkeling along a coral reef in shallow waters. Though the water wasn’t very clear the day we snorkeled, we still saw clouds of small pink-and-yellow rainbow fish, butterflyfish and yellow-and-black striped Sargent Majors. Coral Beach also gets a lovely breeze, so if it’s a hot day, you may want to swim on the sandy side of the island but hang out and have lunch on Coral Beach. If you feel like a bit of exercise, hang a left when you get off the boat and hike up the hill for some great views. The trail then descends back down into Coral Beach. In the middle of the island, there are bars and a large open-air kitchen space, where the fresh-caught seafood is grilled and drinks are made. It’s hard to make out the names of the restaurants, but Restaurante Cuachalalate (with the orange umbrellas) on Playa Cuachalalate gets a thumbs-up for its fresh tortillas and huge coconut shrimp.

Playa Larga

Playa Larga is mostly undeveloped and very sandy, although the water features large breakers at the shore and a strong riptide. Even though swimming is less than ideal here, there are other opportunities for fun that include jogging, horseback riding, fishing and whale watching. Hiking trails that lead from the beach up into old plantation grounds are also worth exploring.

Playa Contramar

This rocky beach is very inviting, with a location in a cove that keeps the water calm. The clear water is ideal for swimming, as well as snorkeling. One thing that stands out about this beach is the array of tropical fish species, as well as octopi and eels. Consider having a pair of sandals or flip-flops handy for walking on the beach to protect your tootsies from the rocks and pebbles.

Playa Linda

Playa Linda boasts a sandy beach and much calmer water than many other Ixtapa beaches. Swimming is always fun here. What’s special about this beach in Ixtapa is its location within a crocodile preserve. Large crocodiles sun on the banks of a fenced-off mangrove estuary that feeds into the ocean. (Don’t worry, you’re not swimming with the crocodiles!) We were told there are about 100 crocs in this cocodrilario. You can also see two-foot-long iguanas resting on tree branches (keeping out of harm’s way). White herons and other exotic birds strut their stuff too here.

Español Lessons with Gina – Enquire at BraveHeartNation Telgram.

Although you can get by with little Spanish in México, most would rather communicate more in Spanish, without relying on a translator app. Spanish is a beautiful language.  Locals really appreciate it AND it leads to deeper, more personal human connection.  There is a handy app called Duo Lingo that can help introduce you to the basics if you want to start learning with an app.  However, it’s definitely best to start learning NOW!  Going above and beyond a self-learning app, we have a wonderful BraveHeart here who teaches Spanish lessons for many levels, both in-person and virtually!  Look above on this page for more info and you can inquire in the BraveHeart Nation Telegram group HERE!
