Air travel:
Take Alaska Airlines. They fly direct. It's worth the extra expense. From LAX it's a 3 hour flight leaving at 10:30 a.m. The return flight departs at 4:30 p.m. allowing plenty of surf time at your last day there. Boards: Take a double board bag. Bubble wrap is a good idea. Airlines charge about $50 for each board bag each way. Cars: Reserve a car in advance. Pick it up at the airport. VW bugs work great for 2 or 3 guys. They cost about $300 per week. Bring soft racks and bungies. Note the Jeeps at the airport have the 4-wheel drive disconnected. You can get one in Ixtapa at Europa Auto Rentals that has 4-wheel drive.

Off the lip

Directions from airport: Follow the signs from the airport to Zihuatanejo (about 8 km) then continue on following the signs towards Ixtapa. Keep your eyes opened for speed bumps called "Topes". There is one just past the 2nd Pemex station on your right as you pass through town and there are others in the little towns North of Zijuatanejo. As you get to the outskirts of Zihuatanejo, you go up a long grade. At the top of the grade go right towards Lazaro Cardenas (left or straight goes down into Ixtapa.) You're on the right road when you can look left and down and see the big hotels and Ixtapa bay. You will follow this road to Los Llanos, which is about 39 km past Zijuatanejo. You will go through several small towns. The one before Los Llannos is Lagunillas. It has a killer speed bump. After passing kilometer marker 39 on the road, turn left at Los Llanos
. The road is concrete for a few blocks. There is a small market on your left while you are still on the concrete. You can get supplies there. They also make good take-out Mexican food at the little stand next to that market. Where the concrete road ends, follow the dirt road to the beach. The beach is about 3 miles down the road. At the beach, you will see an open-air restaurant "Enramada Jacqueline". Our property is through the gate just south of the restaurant. Turn left there and drive through the palm trees to Indios Restaurant and ask for Patrick, our on-site manager. Don't drive on the sand. You'll get stuck. You can drive on our dirt roads. Bring a copy of the reservation e-mail you received to Patrick. See you there!
