We are staying in Ixtapa as part of our vacation to get a little warmth in.  We rarely do beach vacations although there is something so relaxing about them.  You just get into a groove.  Lots of naps, lots of sleep, lots of reading and no stress.

We really have been staying close to our place and not going out at night.  In general I do like to write about the places we are in, the things to do and the restaurants we are eating in but this is not that type of vacation.  

I am looking forward to ending this vacation as a complete mush ball.  There is nothing quite like being totally relaxed.  Not that I could get used to that but for a short time it really is a game changer.

    Sand, sleep, books = recharge. Enjoy!

    That’s the way to roll in Mexico :)We stayed a few years ago 10 min from where you are, in Zihuanatejo at La Casa Que Quanta, a luxury boutique hotel. Their restaurant was also pretty good, if you’re thinking to hop outside of Ixtapa. http://www.lacasaquecanta.com/

      We have friends who swear by La Casa Que Quanta!

        Yup. Same here. Very charming little place. I think it was a top 10 small luxury hotel worldwide.

    Nice–I bet the Internet is less painful there than at Rancho San Eric in Tulum ;)I pine for Tulum, there in March for Spring break with the extended family.

      Tulum is beyond chill.

        We were just in Tulum this morning. It was cooking today and we couldn’t find the “chill” part that everyone was telling us about.

          I think that is it less chill than it used to be.take a yoga class in the morning, nap afterward, lunch on the beach, a little more sun and then tequila and dinner.

    Sounds really relaxing. Good for you! Like the term “mush ball”. Shall try to use that a lot in 2014. Happy new year!
