Ixtapa Shore Excursion: Las Gatas Beach Half-Day Tour

activities / Guided tours

Tour description provided by Viator

When you dock in Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo, hop off your cruise ship and straight onto a boat to Las Gatas Beach for a day of fun in the sun! Playa Las Gatas is a popular, idyllic beach favored for its calm, reef-protected waters, and the only way to get there is by boat. On this relaxing shore excursion, spend your time as you wish – swim, snorkel or lay on the sand.

Spend a day in paradise on this fun Ixtapa shore excursion to Las Gatas Beach. You’ll be picked up from the Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo Pier after your cruise ship docks and taken by boat to beautiful Playa Las Gatas, accessible only from the water. As a protected beach with a coral reef, it is perfect for snorkeling, swimming and scuba diving. Its picturesque location makes it great for simply relaxing on the sand, as well.

If you’re into water sports, rent snorkeling or diving equipment from the beach shacks and restaurants along Playa Las Gatas, and enjoy your time in the water, where you will see manta rays, tropical fish, coral and other marine life. For your comfort and safety, knowledgeable and bilingual guides are always on hand to help and advise you!

After your fun-filled time in the water, you’ll probably have worked up an appetite, so sit back and relax on the white-sand beach while you enjoy a complimentary lunch.
