When flying from the United States to Ixtapa, Mexico you have to consider what part of the US you are flying from, along with how many stops are scheduled, and for how long. Since the US is quite a large area to cover, we want to look at three major airports in different parts of the country: New York (JFK), Los Angeles (LAX), and Houston (IAH, HOU). From these different airports, the travel time to Ixtapa/Zihuatanejo Internacional Airport (ZIH), Ixtapa can be from 6h 15min to over 56h. This wide range of flight duration is also affected by how long stops can take, which can be from 40min to almost a full 24h.
No, there are no nonstop Ixtapa flight deals at this time. Most flights have one-stop and the majority of these stops are in Mexico City (MEX) or Houston (IAH). Many airlines fly to Ixtapa, including Aeromexico, Delta Air Lines, Spirit Airlines, United, Frontier, and VivaAerobus to name a few.
Ixtapa/Zihuatanejo Internacional Airport is over six miles away from Zihuatanejo city center. There are no bus lines from the airport, no train lines, and no Uber. So, we recommend the quicker, cheaper, and easier mode of transport that does exist, a taxi. From the airport, a taxi can cost between $13-16 depending on where you are going to in Zihuatanejo.
Of course, a vacation spot famous for its beaches, and the number one thing we suggest is to enjoy them. Some notable beaches to relax and participate in water and outdoor activities are Playa Linda, Playa Quieta, Playa la Ropa, and the isle Ixtapa. Activities can include swimming, snorkeling, surfing, parasailing, jet-skiing, or just finding a hammock to relax in. For some authentic shopping, you can go to the Mercado de Artesanía Turístico where you’ll find hundreds of stands selling crafts and souvenirs. For more fashionable shopping, there are countless boutique shops all over Downtown Zihuatanejo. As for nightlife, you’ll have a hard time getting bored. The night comes alive with dance clubs and live music venues every night, from salsa to disco to classic covers, there’s a club here for most music lovers. Dining in Zihuatanejo has fresh seafood, high-priced restaurants, or budget-friendly bar and grill places, and everything in between.
You do not need a visa to travel to Mexico if you plan on staying for less than six months. You do however need a valid passport when you arrive and for the duration of your stay in Mexico. When you arrive, you’ll be given a tourist card, we recommend you keep it safe in your passport as you may need to show it to officials at some point during your stay, but also you will have to show the tourist card when you’re leaving Mexico.
For a flight to Ixtapa, you will be flying into Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo Intl. Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo Intl (ZIH) is just 9.3 mi from the center of the city.
