Family Activities:

Playa Linda


This family-friendly beach features white sands and ocean waters. There’s also a bike/skating path that runs along the marina too, where visitors can also find local markets and wildlife areas. Birds and alligators live together in harmony in a sanctuary area by the entrance to Playa Linda. The alligators are fed regularly by a local so the birds are happy to live there, as well.

If you hear a whistling song in the distance, it could be the “Flying Man” performance taking place. These locals climb to the top of a thin pole (about 50 feet in the air), while playing a song, and then swing and spin from their feet as they twirl back down to the ground. It’s something to see! The water taxis to Isla Ixtapa are also found at the marina pier by Playa Linda.
