ZIH Ixtapa Airport Info & Guide
Where is Ixtapa Airport?
Spectacularly beautiful Ixtapa, with 340 days of sunshine a year, and stunning white sand beaches, is one of Mexico's most luxurious destinations. Sitting amongst lush rolling hills on a tropical coastline, Ixtapa offers activities from diving and parasailing, to fishing and hiking. The night life is relaxed here.
Just 5 kilometres (3.1 miles) to the southeast of Ixtapa is Zihuatanejo, a charming Mexican town. Located on a well-protected bay, this once sleepy fishing village has managed to keep its traditional small town feel, despite the influx of tourists.
Zihuatanejo de Azueta (as Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo are known collectively) is now the third most visited area in Mexico (after Cancún and Puerto Vallarta) and is particularly popular spot for sports fishermen.
Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo International Airport (IATA: ZIH, ICAO: MMZH), also known as Ixtapa Airport or Zihuatanejo Airport, is located in the municipality of José Azueta, near Zihuatanejo, in the state of Guerrero on Mexico's Pacific Ocean coast. The beach resorts of Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo are both about 20-30 minutes away.
Airlines serving Ixtapa Airport include Air Canada, Air Transat, Alaska, American, CanJet, Delta, Sunwing, United, US Airways and WestJet. Vacationers to Ixtapa fly in from Calgary, Dallas, Detroit, Houston, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, Montreal, Phoenix, Toronto and Vancouver.
Your best bets for Ixtapa Airport transfers are a 'colectivo' shared mini-van shuttle (cheap but slow) or a taxi (more expensive, but no waiting). Or splurge on a private car (not all that much more a taxi). Details are provided in this guide.
