The Mexican government has, over the years, funded establishment of new
tourist destinations; examples are Cancun, Ixtapa and The Bays of Huatulco.
At times, money has been spent to spiff up a destination as has happened
with Acapulco. Other areas of interest to vacationers just grow on their
own &perhaps are less organized. So Ixtapa may feel too sterile for some,
too planned, while for others it's more comfortable for all that. Nearby
Zihuatanejo is much more chaotic &for some travelers therefore more
I like Barra de Navidad for its unplanned feel, the village atmosphere &slow pace. Same for Careyes. Bays of Huatulco is in contrast more organized &way too sterile for me.
Something for everyone on this coast!
