      Special comments

      Any swimming is at each participant's own risk.

      There are two Manzanillo beaches in the Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo area. One is up the coast, open to the ocean and very popular for surfing. That's not where we're going.

      To get to our Manzanillo, you'll take a short, quick ride on a panga, the typical local fishing boat. Then you'll board the ultramodern, 75-foot Picante. Get ready for a thrill, because when the wind hits the 2,400 square-foot spinnaker (main sail), it feels like you're flying over the bay.

      Our destination beach is tiny, rustic, and unspoiled by civilization. About the only way to get there is by boat. But once you're there you're rewarded with calm, clear waters and a beautiful reef, 10 to 20 feet deep, where an hour of snorkeling feels like minutes.

      Below the surface is a world bursting with life in a dazzling variety of colors. Pretty yellow fish, bright blue ones, black and yellow, blue and yellow, silver black and yellow ... the combinations are endless. Closer to the reef you'll spot starfish, stone fish, maybe a moray eel. And keep an eye out for a passing turtle or two.

      So let the surfers have the big Manzanillo Beach. The one the Picante takes you to is the one you want.

      Tough Childhoods

      The Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo area is a preferred birthing ground for three types of turtles. The Olive Bradley is the most numerous, but Leatherback and Hawksbill turtles are also found here. Every year, females come ashore and tens of thousands of baby turtles are born along this coast. But even with conservation efforts, the odds of survival are against them. Only about one in 20 makes it to adulthood.

      Non-refundable if canceled within 48 hours of requested services.
