Have you seen the amazing “The Shawshank Redemption“ with Tim Robbins and Morgan Freeman? In the movie the leading characters framed Ixtapa as the perfect getaway: a warm place where they can leave behind all their unhappy memories. I can guarantee you, the movie doesn’t lie, Ixtapa truly is a dreamy place for relaxation, and one of the most sought after destinations for all seeking to escape the daily routine and modern life stress.
Our eternal summers make Ixtapa a perfect destination to visit all year long, but summer in Ixtapa is particularly special. The weather is warm, but not brutal, and the tropical rains and showers from our rainy season usually happen after sunset or during the night, refreshing the whole ambiance and making it perfect to enjoy the evening. Due to the tropical weather, the surrounding fields and mountains are filled with bright green colors, blooming trees and multicolor vegetation.
During the summer days I recommend lounging at the pools, be it one of the infinity pools at the resort, or your private plunge pool in your hotel room. I also love to stroll through the town and market. Of course there is plenty to do nearby as well, from a visit to the nearby fishing village Barra de Potosí, or exploring the historic streets of Petatlan, a picturesque town with gold market and an outstanding church.
Rainy evenings at Capella Ixtapa are perfect for becoming a tequila connoisseur during a tequila tastings with our Sommelier Antonio Ochoa. You can also learn to make our signature margaritas or learn to cook your favorite Mexican dish. My ultimate favorite for a rainy evening is a visit to the spa! I could easily fall asleep on the table listening to the relaxing sound of the rain. But if you are feeling more active, you could even learn how to give the perfect massage with our Spa Massage Classes!
There really is so much to do during the summer in Ixtapa and especially at Capella Ixtapa. To find out more about upcoming events and activities follow me on Twitter @CapellaIxtapa or like us on Facebook.com/CapellaIxtapa.
