Mexico 6: Taxco, Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo

Mexico  6: Taxco, Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo

Located on Mexico's southern Pacific Coast, Taxco, Ixtapa, and Zihuatenajo offer various alternatives to well-known Acapulco. Taxco is one of the least spoiled colonial towns in the country and was discovered by the Spanish explorer, HernĂ¡n Cortes, in the 16th century. It is famous for its silver mining industry; one site alone mines over 4,000 tons of silver daily. Also we visit Santa Prisca Cathedral, which can be seen from all over Taxco; it was built in 1751 by Jose La Borda and is a beautiful example of Mexican baroque style architecture. Next we visit the exotic resort town of Ixtapa with its multi-million dollar marina, magnificent plantations and Playa Palmar, the "palm trees" beach, known for its warm surf, scuba diving, and deep-sea fishing. Then we travel six miles to explore Playa del Principal, the main beach of the remote sea village of Zihuatanejo, where local fishermen for generations have moored their colorful boats after fishing out in the scenic bay. 04/10DE IJSCA 30 min.
