Great way to spend your afternoon and evening. Seeing the beaches of Zihau and Ixtapa from the water is the best way for sure. The captain talks about everything you are seeing and makes it fun with music and drinks the whole time. The kids can even fish for a little while. Fun times!

We booked a sunset cruise on the Picante through our hotel in Zihua. I think it ended up being about $50 usd per person, which is a fairly good price. The catamaran left from zihuatanejo and sailed down near Ixtapa and back. The cruise was fairly short, but the views were amazing. The crew was professional and multilingual which helped... More

We had a great time on the Picante sunset cruise. The boat is comfortable, the light dinner was good and the staff are great. I liked the music choices and the fact that it was a family type event.....some fun and partiers but not crazy and no drunks! The staff were especially sweet to bring along a surprise desert for...

About a three hour cruise, out of zihuatanejo Bay up the coast to Ixtapa, to the islands in the bay and the blow hole, stopping to watch the sunset. Good food, all you can drink, beautiful sunset. All you can ask for. Cost was 1000 pesos per person. You can take a taxi to Porto Mio, or walk from town.... More
